Emergency Preparedness

Welcome to the Town’s Emergency Preparedness web pages! The Town has written plans to respond to earthquakes, fires, and other emergencies. Having residents know when to act and what to do is vital to our success.


Please start by registering for Emergency Alerts so that you are the first to know that an emergency exists. Register for BOTH Nixle (Town) and AlertSCC (County) alert systems.


Be sure look at all the ways the Town will provide information during emergencies and how you can continue to communicate with family and friends.


Prepare for specific hazards by clicking on the green buttons on the left. The Safety Library has many documents and “how to” videos on topics ranging from evacuating animals to caring for the elderly. 


If you have any questions, please call 650-941-7222
