October 2015: Berkeley Emergency Preparedness Month and Citywide Emergency Exercise

Practicing for emergencies is more fun when you do it together. The more people connect and get ready together, the safer we’ll all be.  

You can take SIMPLE and AFFORDABLE steps the whole month, in less than 10 minutes, or for less than $10, to make yourself, your family, and our Berkeley community safer in case of earthquakes, wildfires, and other emergencies.
