We never think a disaster will strike our neighborhood, or at least we hope not. However, it is not a question of if one will happen, but when.
Orange County Emergency Management and its partner agencies have plans and resources available to help. However, with over 100,000 residents in Orange County, rescuers may not be able to provide immediate support to every neighborhood in need. Neighbors should be prepared to help themselves for several days to weeks depending on the size of the disaster.
Take the first step to getting your neighborhood in a better position to prepare for and bounce back from a disaster by downloading our 5 Steps to Neighborhood Preparedness Toolkit.
