Emergencies and disasters can strike anytime, anywhere. The City of Santa Fe works hard to ensure our Fire, Police, Public Works, Public Utilities, and every other City Department with a role to play in emergency response is well trained and equipped to handle emergencies and disasters as they arise. But the citizens of Santa Fe have a responsibility to prepare themselves as well. The “In The Know” program is designed to inform our citizens about how they can better prepare themselves, their families, and their communities for emergencies and disasters they may face. The three categories listed above (“The Hazards”, “What You Need”, and “How to Stay Connected”) provide a great starting point for Santa Feans to begin the preparedness process. Below is a list of additional resources that can help make sure the City Different is also the City Prepared!
