The City of Glendora’s emergency management program works in coordination with all City Departments to strengthen the City’s ability to prepare for, mitigate against, respond to, and recover from any disaster.

Each citizen should be prepared to be self-reliant for six days in the event of a major catastrophe. Consider having a supply of food, water, medicine, and personal hygiene items set aside for such an occasion. To get a better idea of how to prepare go to www.ready.gov
