Ready in Renton

Renton is at risk of a wide variety of hazards that pose threats to the life safety of residents, local economy, and the environment. The City is working to get ready for emergencies, but we can't do it alone.

It is important that residents do what they can to get prepared for emergencies. In the event of a major disaster, first responders and normal City services might not be able to reach everyone who needs help for up to two weeks. Are you ready to take care of yourself and the people around you?

Renton residents should know what hazards can impact them, get prepared with their households, and know how to get information during an emergency. Take preparedness classes and volunteer to help your community in a disaster. Together we can all get Ready in Renton.
