Contractors must do so by law. Residents should call, too. This is a free service and it can help prevent injury or death, costly property damage and loss of utility service.

Hispanic Heritage Month
National Hispanic Heritage Month recognizes and celebrates the culture, contributions, and heritage of Hispanic Americans. Now observed annually from September 15 to October 15, this national observance was first established by Public Law 90-498, approved September 17, 1968 by the 90th Congress. Public Law 90-468 authorized the president to proclaim National Hispanic Heritage Week each year. On August 17, 1988, the 100th Congress enacted Public Law 100-402, which extended the observance from a week to a month.

The months of September and October cover a wide range of independence days for Latin American countries. Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua all celebrate their independence on September 15. Mexico celebrates its independence on September 16, Chile on September 18, and Belize on September 21. El Día de la Raza (Columbus Day) is observed on October 12.

Get Involved in Your Community's Preparedness

  • Learn about the hazards most likely to affect your community and their appropriate responses.
  • Finding support from friends, family, and community organizations can help kids cope with disasters.
  • Take classes in lifesaving skills, such as CPR/AED and first aid, or in emergency response, such as CERT.
  • Check in with neighbors to see how you can help each other out.
  • If you have a disability, plan ahead for accessible transportation that you may need for evacuation or getting to a medical clinic. Work with local services, public transportation or paratransit to identify accessible transportation options. 
  • If you have a disability contact your county government’s emergency management agency or office. Many keep lists of people with disabilities so they can be helped quickly in a sudden emergency.
