Emergency Preparedness

Public safety officials say it’s not an matter of “if” but only “when” an earthquake or fire will strike at Oakmont. Living along major faults and at the base of Annadel State Park, Oakmont residents need to be prepared for a major disaster, when, they warn, it could take as long as three days to restore vital services. In such an emergency, the volunteer Oakmont Emergency Preparedness Committee has partnered with the Red Cross to provide shelter and medical care.
