Northside EmPrep

The neighborhood emergency preparedness group of eastern Daley’s Scenic Park and southern La Loma Park

Our neighborhood straddles the Hayward Fault. In case of a disaster, we will be without fire, police, emergency medical, and other basic government services for several days. In January 2006, we formed the Northside EmPrep group to prepare ourselves for dealing with a major earthquake or other disasters and provide essential services to each other during this difficult period.

Explore this website and find out what you can do in your household—and what we are doing together as a neighborhood—to be prepared.
