Are you ready? Disaster can strike at any time. Knowing what to do in an emergency can minimize the effect the situation has on you, your department and your loved ones at home. 

From earthquakes to bomb threats to campus shootings, this website offers information to help you prepare yourself – and your department – for managing during and after a chaotic event.

Aside from the resources found in these web pages, the San Francisco Department of Emergency Management has helpful information on surviving the first 72 hours after a major event like an earthquake (sf72.org). FEMA has more information on their Ready.gov website.
