FLOOD PREPARATION

The Ready, Set, Go! Flood guide provides a preparation plan for wet weather, including how to obtain and use sandbags, and where to sign-up for emergency alert notifications.

To learn more about flood risks or insurance rates, visit VCFloodinfo.com

During heavy rainfall, monitor the news, websites and social media sites for updated weather conditions. The phrasing meteorologists use is important; a Flood Watch means flooding is possible in your area, Flood Warning means flooding in your area is already occurring or is imminent, and Flash Flood is sudden violent flooding. Flash floods often come up quickly during heavy rain.

LOCATIONS: During the rainy season, local fire stations typically have sand and/ or bags, limit 10 per customer. For supplies, call your local fire station at (805) 377-1111 or visit a local retailer.
