Natural disasters and emergencies don't plan ahead, but you can! You can take steps now to help you prepare for an emergency and cope when crisis strikes.
The City of Corona offers a variety of programs to help our community be prepared. Explore the links below to learn more!
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program, implemented in many communities across the country, is designed to increase individual and community preparedness and self-reliance in the event of man-made or natural disasters. The Corona Fire Department is pleased to bring this program to our community. Get involved!
Learn CPR - People who experience Sudden Cardiac Arrest die because they don't receive immediate CPR from someone close-by. As a family member, friend or bystander, don't be afraid. Your actions can only help. In a couple of hours, you can learn to save a life with the Corona Fire CPR Training Program.
You may need to survive on your own after a disaster. This means having your own food, water, and other supplies in sufficient quantity for members of your household or workplace. Assembling a supply kit and developing a communications plan are what you can do to be prepared. Learn about disaster preparedness.
Emergency Notification System
The City of Corona, along with Cassidian Communications (formerly PlantCML), has instituted an improved local notification system that will be able to send telephone notifications to residents and businesses within City of Corona. Because the system uses the 9-1-1 database provided by the local telephone company, only land-line numbers are in the system. If you have a Voice over IP (VoIP) or cellular telephone and would like to be notified over that device, or if you would like to receive notification by email or text, you must register those telephone numbers and/or email addresses for use by the system. Please note that calls generated from this system are out-of-state and registers 615-843-6147 with a callerID of Corona Emerg Info. Click here for the Self-Registration Portal
Ready! Set! Go!
Wildfires can spread rapidly, with little-to-no warning, often going unnoticed until it is too late. These wildfires, commonly started by human error, quickly ignite and burn through tinder-dry bushes and trees, and unfortunately spread to nearby homes as well. Every family should have a Personal Wildfire Action Plan. Having a plan and knowing what to do may save your home from wildfire.
Flooding & Sandbags
The City of Corona will provide up to 10 pre-filled sandbags to City of Corona residents before/during a heavy storm. Bags can be picked up at Santana Park on the corner of Santana Way and Kellogg Avenue. This location will be staffed as long as it is raining as residents will be required to show ID to prove Corona residency.
Vial of Life + MyID QR Code (Life Information for Emergencies)
The “Vial of Life” and MyID QR Code programs help you to compile personal information and have it available for 911 responders in the event of an emergency.
