Emergency Preparedness Commission

The Commission consists 15 members who are appointed by the City Council. The Commission was established in 1998 to effectively deal with the possibility of man-made and natural emergencies such as major earthquakes, floods, extended power outages, terrorism, hazardous material and other problems. The Commission’s main purpose is to prepare and train citizens and business for any possible emergency. It has progressed from an advisory body to an operational task force. Representatives of Home Owner Associations, gated communities and neighborhoods are especially encouraged to attend. (Res. Nos. 98-18, 98-22, 2003-33, 2006-49, 2010-20, & 2013-11)
