IRVINE, CA (August 31, 2014): September is National Emergency Preparedness Month and the Irvine Police Department Office of Emergency Management would like to encourage Irvine residents to be prepared by making a family plan, stockpiling emergency supplies and knowing how to stay connected to the City.
Start by assembling a supply kit tailored to your family’s needs; develop a plan of action for meeting up with and communicating with family members; register your home and cell phones with the City’s iAlert system to receive emergency alerts and information; download the Access Irvine APP to stay informed and to receive “push” notifications; listen to 1640AM during an emergency for live updates; follow the City on Twitter and Facebook; and take a free Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) course offered by the City to receive potentially life-saving information.
