Preparedness and Safety

Prepare San Leandro

Prepare San Leandro is an “Adopt a Drain” program that will recruit volunteers to help keep storm drains clear of leaves and refuse. Volunteers will play a critical role in assisting the city in reducing the number of clogged storm inlets that often result in dangerous flooding to roadways, homes, and businesses. The city’s Public Works department will provide free trash bags to participants and will serve as a lead partner in this program.

Preparedness and Safety

Community Emergency Response Team

CERT Volunteers

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) members will receive training around sandbagging and flood control; clearing storm drains; clearing residential areas of hazardous debris such as tree branches, foliage, and decorations; clearing a defendable space around a residence to protect against fire, and more. CERT members will then train and engage neighborhood volunteers to complete these tasks, better preparing San Leandro's neighborhoods for future shocks.
