In addition to day-to-day emergency operations, the Fire District faces the threat of large-scale disaster from a variety of events including earthquake, hazardous materials and biological incidents, flooding, terrorism, civil unrest and fire conflagrations.
Well-developed and coordinated emergency preparedness efforts are necessary to minimize losses and speed recovery from disasters. The Fire District has an active role in emergency preparedness planning and training within the Chino Valley.
Emergency preparedness planning and training for the Fire District, the cities of Chino and Chino Hills and unincorporated areas will be placed at a priority.
The Fire District conducts bi-annual District-wide preparedness exercises. Exercises should periodically test the emergency medical system and include mass-casualty simulations.
