Emergencies can and will happen at any time. It is essential that residents and visitors of the North Coast of San Luis Obispo County be prepared for the potential impacts that an emergency can create. From floods to earthquakes, from wildfires to windstorms, being prepared for a disaster may be your only chance of survival until emergency services can arrive. Both natural and man-made disasters may cause immeasurable damage and overwhelm first-responders. Members of the community must be prepared to be self-sufficient. To ensure you are ready for such a disaster, we are working to mitigate, prepare for, respond to and recover from the effects of these events.
It is important to plan in advance. Are you and your family ready? Do you have the supplies on hand to sustain your household for an extended period of time? Do you have your go bag and evacuation plans ready? Be prepared.
