It is still early in the fire season and our hearts go out to those who have already been impacted by the Dixie and Caldor fires. Unfortunately, fire season brings unpredictability and uncertainty, and now more than ever, being prepared for emergencies is important for the health and wellbeing of our families and community. We have complied three ways to learn more and ensure your family is prepared:
1) Visit the City of Petaluma emergency preparedness website to find clear and actionable resources, including:
- A checklist of everything you need to pack a Go-Bag
- A map with evacuation zones
- A guide for how to make a plan with your family to stay safe during an emergency
2) Attend the 9th Annual Petaluma Emergency Preparedness Fair + Blood Drive on Sunday, September 26, 2021 from 11:00 am - 3:00 pm at Walnut Park. Get Free information and resources from our community partners: Petaluma Fire & Police, FEMA, DHS, Red Cross, US Coast Guard, Sonoma County Sheriff's Office, CHP, VFW, American Legion, Local Girl & Boy Scouts.
3) Sign up for emergency alerts:
- By the City of Petaluma via Nixle – Receive email or text messages from local fire and law enforcement agencies that include public safety messages as well as emergency information. Text your zip code to 888777 to opt-in or sign up online.
- By the County of Sonoma via SoCo Alerts – Receive alerts through text messages, landline calls, or email. The system also works with telephone devices for the deaf. You can sign up online.
