Emergency Preparedness

Listos California

The Listos (Ready) California Emergency Preparedness Campaign is a visionary initiative of Governor Gavin Newsom to engage over one million Californians in vulnerable populations and geographies, ensuring that they are prepared for emergencies, and showcasing the best that California has to offer through community service, neighborhood preparedness, and disaster resilience. The campaign will bolster the efforts of first-responders by ensuring that the most vulnerable Californians are connected to culturally and linguistically competent support. It will also build on the success of existing resident efforts throughout the State of California to foster local community disaster preparedness networks.
