Be Informed

.

The first step in being prepared is to know what you are preparing for. What types of hazards are likely to occur in your community? For CVWD, the risks we face include fire, earthquake, flooding, traffic incidents, and an emergency at the treatment plant that could make the water supply unavailable.

  • Sign up to receive emergency alerts from your city or utility companies. CVWD offers customers the opportunity to sign up for Rapid Notify to participate in this service. It is voluntary and free to enroll (standard text message rates may apply).
  • Information is available from federal, state, county, tribal, and local resources to help you be prepared. Visit Ready.gov to prepare ahead of time, prior to the emergency striking.
