Emergencies come in many shapes and sizes, but, here on the coast, the primary threat to residents and visitors are tsunamis, earthquakes, and severe winter storms. The City has developed emergency response plans in conjunction with other local governments which include an emergency evacuation plan; emergency medical caches stored in various locations throughout the City; satellite telephone service for disaster use by emergency crews; emergency gas pump power sources to keep police vehicles and emergency equipment operational; cooperative agreements with the County, the Fire Department and other emergency responders; Red Cross shelters throughout the City and Arch Cape; Evacuation Routes; and Assembly Areas.
