Be Ready...Prepare Today!

The Santa Clara County Public Health Department's goal is to educate the public about how to prepare for emergencies, including natural disasters, mass casualties, biological and chemical threats, radiation emergencies, and terrorist attacks.
 
Being prepared is the best way to protect yourself and your family against disasters, including public health emergencies like pandemic flu. Because nobody knows when the next disaster will happen, it’s important to get prepared now.
 
There are three simple steps you can take throughout the year to prepare.
 

BE PREPARED:

1. Put together an emergency supply kit.
 
2. Make a family emergency plan and share it with your family.
 
3. Watch local news and stay informed - go to AlertSCC and register today to receive local emergency alert notifications and information.
