September is National Emergency Preparedness Month 

During this month the City of Chino Hills focuses on readiness education and promoting family and community disaster planning. This nationwide coordinated effort is held each year to increase public awareness about the importance of preparing for emergencies and taking action. During this month and throughout the year, we urge all residents to enhance their knowledge of the proper safety measures to follow before, during, and after an emergency.

Attendees visit various information booths from community partners and organizations to gather resources and enter giveaways for free prizes. Thank you to all those who attended the 2022 Workshop!
