Emergency Preparedness

The city of Scottsdale’s Emergency Manager oversees the city’s preparation for disasters and emergencies and coordinates large-scale emergency responses.  

What can you do?

Prepare your home and be self-sufficient

While the city of Scottsdale is prepared to respond to the full range of emergency situations, you, your family and your pets should be prepared to go without assistance for several days should a major disaster strike.

Sandbags

Seasonal storms can cause flooding in Scottsdale. During these storms, the city may make sand and sandbags available to help residents protect their property.

Help your neighbors and your community

Scottsdale’s Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) are citizens who have volunteered to receive basic emergency response skills training so they can better assist their families, friends and neighbors.

CERT members learn about the different types of hazards most likely to affect Scottsdale, steps to prepare, first aid and basic medical and disaster response techniques.
