With rainstorms forecast throughout the holiday weekend and emergency dam construction continuing at Lake Oroville, area residents are urged to be prepared in case of emergencies. Here is a list of resources available:
▪ Residents in Sacramento, Yolo and Placer counties can receive information about local emergencies via email, text, cell and landlines by signing up at www.Sacramento-Alert.org.
Ordered to evacuate? It’s best to know how to prepare, what to take and how to move out safety.
Never miss a local story.
Pets can be a huge concern when people are scrambling to get out of their homes quickly. Knowing what your animals need when things go sideways is important.
Sometimes sandbags can hold back water that otherwise would cause big problems. Knowing how to fill and use them is important.
If you must leave your home, make sure it is locked and secure so when you return, it’s to the same contents you originally left.
