Oakland Personal Emergency Preparedness Classes

Self reliance is key. After completing this short course, you should be able to identify and anticipate hazards, reduce hazards in the home and workplace, and apply basic lifesaving medical techniques. We encourage everyone to register for this class.

Citywide Emergency Plans

The City of Oakland has plans in place. We encourage everyone to review them in advance so we all know what to do in an emergency or declared disaster.
