Kit Upgrade

 Check grocery ads for sales on canned goods.  Sales offered at $0.59 or $0.69 per can are often a good buy.  Save money by buying in bulk on sale.  If you don't regularly used canned goods, mark the expiration date clearly and donate to a food bank before the food expires; a secondary benefit for the community. 

Donate now to survivors of disasters around the nation and internationally.

Click on the link to update your information.

You may have already received an email request for you to submit your survey response.  If not, please take the time to click on the link above to answer some questions and update your contact information.

We are working on updates to our call-out systems and databases.  We want to make sure we have the most current information for you! 

Those who maintain their active status with the CERT and RACES program are notified during call-outs:  EOC activation, Fire Watch Patrols, etc.  In order to maintain an active status you may do any of the following throughout the year:  attend a monthly meeting, assist during a CERT training class, attend and participate at a drill or exercise. 

Please take a moment to update your contact information
 by clicking on the survey link above so that we have the most up-to-date records on file. 
Anaheim Alert & AlertOC
Anaheim Alert Update your contact information
Did you know that you can update and change the contact information in Anaheim Alert and Alert OC?  If you want to change what numbers are called, or the email addresses where you receive notifications, you can go into each system and make those changes.  Keeping these systems up-to-date with your information help our office in many ways:  (1) we always have the correct information to contact you for an emergency event, (2) it saves staff and volunteer time for each person to input their own information rather than one person making data entries, (3) it allows you to specify how you would like to be contacted, or how often for other events in the city (like road closures, etc.)
