We continue to see natural disasters, such as Hurricane Sandy, impact our world. If a major disaster were to strike the North Bay, first responders would be heavily committed to rescue and relief efforts. Are you prepared to survive without help for a period of time? Is your family prepared? 


In Novato, we face a multitude of hazards including earthquakes, wildfires, flooding, and landslides. To address these public safety risks, a simple and free two-hour emergency preparedness program is being offered to all households in the county through the Get Ready Emergency Disaster Preparedness Program, a collaborative effort between Marin County communities and jurisdictions with a goal to prepare households with the skills and information to survive and cope with a disaster for five to seven days.


Advanced registration is required. Scheduled classes are subject to cancellation if minimum enrollment is not met.


Call (415) 897-4361 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday throught Thursday for registration. The course is free.
