City of Riverside, California
:: Disasters can happen any time and anywhere. . .  How Ready are you?

Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare"

  September is National Preparedness Month (NPM) a nationwide coordinated effort sponsored by the Ready Campaign and Citizen Corps encouraging families to take action now to prepare for future emergencies and disasters in their homes, businesses, and communities.  

  Disaster can strike quickly and without warning. It can force evacuation from or confinement to your home or work place. What would you do if water, gas, electricity, or telephone service were cut off?  How would you reconnect with family if you were at work?

   The Riverside Fire Department – Office of Emergency Management can help you be disaster ready. Plan to attend the 4th Annual Ready Riverside Emergency Preparedness Fair on Saturday, September 27, 2014 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm, 3520 Tyler Street, Riverside, (Target Store Parking Lot.)  Learn your risks and how to better respond before during and after a disaster. Learn how to build your emergency supply kit. See Rescue and FEMA K-9 Search Dog Demos.

 Communities must work together to develop capabilities to respond quickly, and recover in a way that increases resilience.  For more information on the Fair call (951) 320-8112

Riversiders need to be vigilant in preparing for all types of emergencies. The city is preparing for disasters, but residents will most often be the first to render aid to family and neighbors.

Taking steps now to prepare will go a long way to returning our community to normalcy. Please join me in making our city a safer and better prepared place to live, work, and visit.

Get a kit, make a plan, be informed and get involved.

Mayor Rusty Bailey

Being prepared can mean the difference between life and death in an emergency. Just as the City of Riverside and partner agencies are prepared to deal with large scale emergencies, individuals must be prepared as well. Ready Riverside highlights a four-step approach to emergency preparedness.
