No one ever thinks it’s going to happen to them, until it does. Lightening sparks a wildfire. A river spills over its banks. And suddenly you’re trying to outrace a disaster.

There’s a lot the Sheriff’s Office can do. We can warn you and we can keep you updated on conditions.  We can show you how to mitigate danger, but ultimately, your safety, and the safety of your family, is up to you.

That’s why you need to sign up for emergency alerts and register your gate codes.  Make a plan before the emergency strikes, before it’s too late.  We’ll show you how to prepare now.

We’re prepared. You should be, too. Safety is a shared responsibility.
