Be Prepared

Disaster PreparationAre you adequately prepared for a local emergency?

If a disaster strikes our community, local government and disaster relief organizations will do their best to help you as soon as they can. In the event of a local emergency, 2-1-1 Orange County, CA will actively work with the appropriate authorities to gather crucial information and disseminate it as quickly and as effectively as possible.

However, you need to be ready to help yourself and your loved ones until assistance can arrive.

In a major disaster, it could be several days before vital services are restored. Emergency preparedness experts say you should be ready to be self-sufficient — able to provide for your own shelter, water, food, first aid and sanitation — for at least three days.

Being prepared not only can reduce fear and anxiety; it can minimize the impact of disasters on you and your family.

There are a variety of resources that provide guidance for emergency preparedness; we have listed several below. In general, they all suggest making some emergency action plans, assembling an emergency supply kit, and staying well informed about real and potential situations.
