What to Do During & After a Disaster

Evacuation 

Be ready to evacuate if directed by emergency personnel - the City/County may order optional or mandatory evacuations depending upon conditions. If evacuations are called for, it is imperative that you follow instructions of emergency personnel in the time frame noted.

See the Ready.gov evacuation planning tools and information

Provide Safe Drinking Water

Ensure your household has a safe source of drinking water. In the event of major flooding or other major disaster, you may want to fill bathtubs, sinks, and jugs with clean water in case regular supplies are shut off or contaminated.

Sewer Backup

If you receive a sewer backup call SAM at 650-726-0124. Please find more information at http://www.half-moon-bay.ca.us/172/Sewer
