The County of San Diego Office of Emergency Services knows that emergencies and disasters can strike quickly and without warning. Since September 11, 2001 the threat of terrorist acts in the United States has created the need for new preparedness.

Terrorism Preparedness:

San Diego County residents can better cope with potential terrorism and other crisis situations by preparing in advance. Preparedness begins with each individual and extends to their families, friends and co-workers.
