The City of Temecula Office of Emergency Management (OEM) coordinates the emergency mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery services to the residents of the City of Temecula with the appropriate City agencies and external partners. This typically occurs in our Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and efforts are guided by the Emergency Operations Plan (EOP), which is reviewed annually and updated every three years. Through outreach, our office encourages residents to become more disaster ready and disaster resilient to ensure they are prepared for emergencies. We also manage the City's Alert and Warning Program, Temecula ALERT, to ensure residents of this community are informed during an emergency.
The City of Temecula's Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is proud to sponsor the City's first ever Community Preparedness Backpack Program. We have teamed up with Ready America, Inc. to get YOU prepared with your very own custom emergency kit designed specifically for you to respond in the event of an emergency. This kit includes your basic lifesaving essentials as well as important information from the Temecula Citizen Corps (TCC) on what to do in the event of a disaster.
Each kit will sell for $45.99 and includes items such as: drinking water, a 4-in-1 gas and water shutoff tool, gloves, first aid kit, and a disaster radio with flashlight and cell phone charger.
Your kit can be ordered online HERE or purchased in person from City Hall. All you need to do is come down, see the front desk and tell them you are here to purchase a backpack. For online orders, once we reach our pre-order threshold, we will place our order from the vendor and will call you to schedule a time and a date to pick up.
Safety has never been more important! This kit will help get you, your family, and friends prepared to respond immediately to an emergent need. Take the first step now to get PREPARED and let's make Temecula a Disaster Ready and Disaster Resilient community.
