Emergency Preparedness

Preparing for an emergency is everyone's responsibility. The City of Chino is dedicated to providing the community with information about preparing for any emergency that may strike. The City is counting on everyone to do their part in preparing their homes, neighborhoods, and families.

The responsibility of Emergency Management is within the Chino Police Department. However, each and every one of us has a responsibility in;

  • Preparing your family
  • Assisting your neighbors
  • Volunteering in your community

5 Preparedness Tips

Download our Emergency Preparedness Brochure for more information on the 5 tips below:

1. Pack a kit: don't forget things like water, food, medication, first aid items, important documents and hygiene items. Use the check-off list to make sure you have everything you need!

2. Make a plan: where will you meet, what will you do, and how will you communicate?
 
3. Sign-up for Chino Notify to receive emergency and community alerts.

4. Get to know your neighbors: we are more resilient when we stand together. Once you have
prepared your family, encourage your neighbors to do the same.

5. Volunteer in your community: just preparing your family and neighborhood will assist your City in recovering from a disaster quickly. But, if you have a desire to do more consider joining the Chino Cares Volunteer Program or other police department volunteer opportunities

Programs

We have several community based working groups and workshop presentations available for residents, businesses, and other local organizations to participate in. 

We also offer the Listos program which is a basic emergency and disaster readiness public education program for Spanish-speaking populations with a grass-roots approach. The purpose of Listos is to provide very basic resources to Latino populations for emergency readiness in an environment in which they feel comfortable. Topics include:

•Identifying Vulnerabilities
•Creating a communication plan 
•Important Document Back – Up
•Fire Extinguisher Use
•First Aid 
•Utilities Shut-off 

For further information and to become involved in helping prepare Chino you can email the City's Emergency Manager or call Chino PD at (909) 334-3192.

Readiness

Readiness
The Readiness component focuses on making sure residents, businesses, and employees are properly informed and trained on how to prepare, respond, and recover in the event of a disaster.

The Department hosts annual community workshops and also provides presentations for community groups upon request. In addition, numerous community partnerships have been developed to create working groups that meet to share resources and information relevant to preparedness. The partnerships include, but are not limited to faith-based groups/churches, utility agencies, schools, government organizations, and service clubs.

The City of Chino participates in the annual Shake Out where millions of people worldwide will practice how to Drop, Cover, and Hold On at 10:18 a.m. on October 18. Participating is a great way for your family or organization to be prepared to survive and recover quickly from big earthquakes– wherever you live, work, or travel.
