Over the next few days, California is expected to receive heavy wind, rain, and potential flooding. Governor Gavin Newsom has already proclaimed a State of Emergency to help mobilize state government.

In an emergency, we all have a responsibility to check on our family, friends, and neighbors, especially older individuals, those with disabilities, and our children. Please take a moment to check-in on each other, especially the most vulnerable among us. We are stronger together.

Below is the CalHHS Emergency Resource Guide to help prepare for emergencies, including winter storms. In this guide, you will find suggestions to prepare a personal emergency plan, how to prepare medical devices that require electricity, and information about available mental, social, and health care services.
