An emergency preparedness Zoom webinar will be held 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 17, hosted by the City of Chino Hills to commemorate September as National Emergency Preparedness Month.

The Chino Hills Police Department will discuss wildfire evacuation, the Chino Valley Fire District will introduce an app called “Community Connect” that allows residents to submit information to assist firefighters in case of an emergency, and Southern California Edison will speak about public safety power shutoffs and rolling power outages.

City employees will talk about preparing for several types of hazardous situations, emergency communications, and how to choose a generator. Attendees will learn how to build a “go bag.”

Representatives from the county public health department will talk about the pandemic and flu season.
