A recent poll shows that 67% of Kensington residents have prepared for an evacuation or a shelter-in-place.
Conduct a self-assessment by inventorying all the documents, prescriptions, and personal items you would need if evacuated from your home. Consider your needs, your family, and your pets.
Please read through the Kensington Wildfire Preparedness Workbook to plan for your needs. The digital version is available online at www.kensingtonfire.org/workbook. Hardcopies are available at the Public Safety Building (217 Arlington Avenue).
Residents are strongly encouraged to practice emergency water storage. If a strong earthquake damages utility infrastructure and disrupts water delivery, it may be weeks until service is restored.
