Earthquake Anniversary Prompts Emergency Preparedness

Good afternoon –

This month (October 17 to be precise) marks the 23rd anniversary of the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake, and it’s an opportunity to highlight the critical need to be prepared in the event of a disaster.

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC – supplier of water to nearly three million Bay Area water customers, including 100% of Redwood City’s water) is offering a lot of good information about ensuring you have a safe and reliable water supply during a major emergency.

Please visit the SFPUC’s Emergency Preparedness page to learn more.

And, Redwood City would also like to take the opportunity to remind residents and businesses that being prepared for disaster is an important step in ensuring the safety of your family and loved ones, your home and property, and your business. It doesn’t take long to do – if and when disaster strikes, you’ll be in a much better position for having made some emergency preparations.

One easy way to get started is to form your own group of 20 or more and schedule a free Are You Ready 2-hour disaster preparedness presentation by the Redwood City Fire Department. Click here to learn more.

The Fire Department encourages Redwood City residents and businesses to do their part to prepare for disaster – and offers these links to get started (these are also on the Fire Department’s website at

Thank you,
