Storm Preparedness Community Meeting

Thursday, December 17, 2015

Officials predict severe El Niño storm events and flooding this winter. All residents and businesses should prepare. Attend this important community meeting to hear what the City is doing to plan ahead and get tips to help your family and employees prepare as well.

The City’s storm and flooding preparedness webpage provides information on preparing for storms and flooding, sandbag locations open to residents to use in preparation for potential rain, and creek monitoring. Make sure you have a flood safety plan.

Topics to be covered include:
  • Update from the San Franciscquito Creek Joint Powers Authority on what has been done to reduce flood risk and their new flood warning/alert website;
  • Discussion on the areas that are likely to be affected by flooding;
  • Update on the City's efforts to prepare for the pending storms;
  • Emergency preparedness information from the Police Department (What to do and how to stay connected);
  • Demonstration on how to fill and stack sandbags.
