In Case of an Emergency

The recent fires in Northern California generated many phone calls to the Chamber regarding local emergency procedures and notifications. Walnut Creek City Manager Dan Buckshi directed us to the City website.  The site provides an emergency supply checklist, information on CERT, and links to  register for cell and reverse 911 alerts.

The Answer is...Volunteer
