Back to Emergency Preparedness Page

The first step in emergency preparedness is to understand what types of disasters you may be facing. The HAZARDS section of our web site will introduce you to the threats in our community and some basic tips to protect your home and property. In addition to having information regarding potential disasters affecting your home in Irvine, you should also be familiar with emergency plans for your workplace and your children's school. You can also consult FEMA's "Ready.gov" page for additional information on citizen preparedness.
