How to Prepare

Types of Events

In the NRG program, we like to say that you are your best first responder and that you need to be ready to respond to three disaster or emergency situations - earthquake, wildfire and PSPS.



  • We have been told that following a major earthquake, we may not see a uniformed first responder for two to five days and that we have to be prepared to take care of ourselves for that time.

  • You need to have supplies on hand to get you and your family and your pets through safe and sound.


  • In a wildfire situation, you need to have prepared your family with an evacuation plan and with the bare essentials you need to take with you.


Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS)

  • If you are dependent on electric power for your medical security, you need to be ready for a PSPS event.
