Disaster Preparedness

Monterey County embraces the Whole Community concept, one in which engagement of the private and nonprofit sectors, along with the general public and in conjunction with local, tribal, state, and Federal government partners  leads to a stronger, more resilient community.  

Preparedness is a shared responsibility, and it calls for the involvement of everyone—not just the government—in preparedness efforts. By working together, we can keep our communities safe from harm and resilient when struck by hazards.

We will-

·         Work to understand the unique and diverse needs of our local communities

·         Engage and empower these communities, involving everyone as part of the process to identify needs and resources available

·         Find ways to support and strengthen the already existing capabilities to further enhance the capacity of these communities

By working together, we can do more.
