Planning for a Potential Disaster Event

From earthquakes to wildfires, floods and tsunami, there are a number of disaster events that may possibly occur within Santa Cruz County. We do not always have the luxury of advanced warning, and there is a possibility that many of the services and utilities that we rely on every day may become unavailable for a temporary or prolonged amount of time. The good news is that citizens and their families can prepare in advance, so that if a disaster strikes, everyone will know what to do to stay safe.

In addition, storms also often have significant impacts on our road system, utilities, property and livelihoods. Simple storm preparedness steps can help mitigate some of the impacts on residents.

Below you will find important guides and resources designed to help keep your family safe and prepared during a natural disaster event.
