Ready Sunday

What would happen if the next big earthquake struck on a Sunday morning? Would your church family know what to do?

Faith-based organizations are a vital part of our community. When disaster strikes, houses of worship become safe havens in the neighborhood. ReadyOC, Orange County’s emergency preparedness program, hosts FREE Ready Sunday events to ensure that everyone including churches, synagogues, mosques, temples and community-based organizations are prepared.

How to Participate

    Free materials include:
    • Giveaways (such as first aid kits and emergency buckets to store supplies)
    • Family emergency plans
    • Preparedness checklists
    • Information sheets, and more!
    You can also create an emergency kit for your congregation and designate a shelter-in-place interior room, as well as exterior meeting locations.
