During a large local emergency, the Sebastopol Fire Department and other area first responders will deploy personnel and equipment to the areas where they are needed most. With resources likely stretched thin, many areas will be on their own for hours, days, or longer. The City of Sebastopol and Sebastopol Fire Department have launched SebastopolReady.org, an emergency and disaster preparedness and readiness resource with information on how neighbors can prepare to provide care, safety and comfort simply by working together. The Sebastopol Fire Department supports neighbors helping neighbors and provides a proven 9 step framework for each neighborhood to use and build upon.
The new resource has been a collaborative effort with the Map Your Neighborhood (MYN) Leader Council and brings together the emphasis and efforts of the MYN Program to help residents learn to work together. The primary goal of SebastopolReady.org is to help our local residents continue in their interest and efforts to take responsibility for themselves during emergencies.
SebastopolReady.org is intended to evolve as resiliency improves and expands in the future.
