What's New - September 2016 Minimize

Disaster Preparedness Week:

September is National Preparedness Month (NPM) which serves as a reminder that we all must take action to prepare, now and throughout the year, for the types of emergencies that could affect us where we live, work and visit. This year’s theme is, “Don’t Wait, Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today”. This video from Ready.gov illustrates the importance of thinking ahead, to prepare for a major earthquake or other disaster. For more info on preparedness, visit www.ready.gov, OR register for our Fall CERT training.

Fall CERT Classes

Is your neighborhood prepared in the event of the next major disaster? The District will be hosting free CERT (Community Emergency Response team) training from Sept. 20, 2016 through Oct. 25, 2016. See our CERT page for details on registering for these courses.

Soberanes Fire Update

As of September 1, the Soberanes Fire has burned 93,245 acres, with 57 homes destroyed and many more immediately threatened. At 60% containment, the fire is likely to burn through the month of September, potentially compromising air quality for the surrounding areas (including Santa Cruz County). Monterey Bay Air Pollution Control has regular updates on air quality in the surrounding areas. For more updates on air quality issues, visit www.mbuapcd.org.

A number of agencies have gathered to support those affected by the Soberanes Fire. To learn how/where you can donate time or supplies to these causes, visit the Monterey County Community Resilience Program at: https://montereyco.recovers.org/.
