Disaster Preparedness

HACM Objective

Our goal for this site is to provide our local residents with vital information for disaster preparedness. Being prepared can reduce fear, anxiety, and losses that accompany disasters. Communities, families, and individuals should know what to do in the event of a fire and where to seek shelter during an earthquake.

Residents should be ready to evacuate their homes and take refuge in public shelters and know how to care for their basic medical needs.

We strongly encourage our residents to have the following completed before a disaster strikes in Monterey County. (click on the links below for detailed information)
