Build an Emergency Supply Kit
Emergency supply kits are critical after emergency or disaster strikes. They help you to survive on your own until help arrives. Learn about the two emergency supply kits you should include in your emergency planning.
Help Family, Friends and Neighbors
If you and your family are prepared at home, you will be better able to help others in your community. Learn how you can help others by being prepared.
Hot Weather Safety
Extremely hot weather can result in heatstroke, heat exhaustion, heat cramps, sunburn, heat rash, and in some instances death. Please take safety measures to stay safe and lend a helping hand to family, friends, and neighbors.
Who We Are
The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) strives to ensure the whole community is prepared for significant disasters occurring in Santa Clara County. OEM maintains readiness to support disaster response, recovery, and mitigation.
Emergencies and disasters can happen without warning. But you can plan ahead! Building resilient communities takes prepared community members who are willing and able to look out not just for themselves but to also look out for others. It takes everyone - government, local law enforcement, fire, emergency medical services, and community members, coming and working together to recover from an emergency or disaster.
Together, we can build resilient communities and establish a culture of emergency preparedness by being prepared community members.
