Emergency Preparedness


Our neighborhood rests directly atop the Hayward Fault. There is a 31% chance that a major earthquake will occur along this particular fault by 2032, and a 63% chance of a major earthquake in the Bay Area over the next 30 years.

In the case of a disaster, water and power could be cut off for all of us — and millions more living in the Bay Area. Professional fire fighting, police, and medical services will be overwhelmed with response needs. Relief agencies are saying that we need to be prepared to be without public relief services for at least seven days after a major earthquake.

ERH neighbors have begun to prepare ourselves for dealing with a major earthquake or other disasters and for providing essential support to each other.

Explore this website and find out what you can do in your household — and what we are doing together as a neighborhood — to be prepared. If you have any questions and/or would like help connecting up your block, please contact the ERH Emergency Preparedness Team Co-Captains. Team members are available to meet with you and your block neighbors to help you in any way possible. It’s all about neighbors helping neighbors!
