Local Programs & Services

Disaster can strike quickly and without warning. It can force you to evacuate your neighborhood or confine you to your home. What would you do if basic services–water, gas, electricity or telephones–were cut off? Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone right away.

Knowing what to do to protect yourself and your household is essential. The American Red Cross of the Silicon Valley is here to help you, your family, friends, business, school, and community prepare for a disaster.
