Be Ready Sacramento County! 
Would you be ready if there was an emergency or disaster in your neighborhood?  Get started with 3 small steps to prepare yourself and your family. 
1.  Be informed
2.  Make an Emergency Plan
3.  Build an Emergency Kit


We encourage residents to be prepared in the event of any emergency.  In a major disaster, basic services and supplies we all count on everyday may not be available.  Drinking water may be contaminated.  The shelves at grocery stores could be empty.  Usual means of public transportation may be disrupted.  And our homes may be without power for days and perhaps weeks.  Given the possibilities, it is critical to be prepared in the event of an emergency.

Below are some resources to help you and your family get ready for a disaster:
