Are You Prepared For An Emergency?


With a population over 70,000 and more than 2,500 businesses, located in an urbanized and seismically active zone, Union City is vulnerable to a number of natural and man-made disasters, including earthquakes, fires, floods and industrial accidents.  There is no greater responsibility for the City of Union City than to protect the public and ensure that everyone is ready to respond to and recover from these and other potentially devastating events.

All residents, local employees and visitors are encouraged to take actions now to improve their individual preparedness.  Don’t be caught unprepared; a little prep goes a long way!

In case of a major emergency, the City will provide updates on the City website, social media portals like Facebook and Twitter, and through the media.  Tune your radio to KCBS at 740 AM for important alerts and updates. A good place to start is the Alameda County emergency and disaster preparedness website at: http://Ready.acgov.org.

To receive Union City-specific alerts your cellphone, we encourage you to sign-up for Nixle.
