The Claremont GET READY initiative (Also called Emergency Preparedness) is NOT designed to alarm residents. Rather, we are a team of committed volunteer residents who aim to inform, prepare, organize, and practice emergency procedures with the intent of helping our community survive a major disaster. With over 80 volunteers, we ask ALL of our neighbors to help make a difference by partnering, pitching in, and preparing.

Are You Prepared?

History tells us that a major earthquake hits our area every 300 hundred years.  We are within that window, and scientists tell us we have a 30-40% chance of experiencing one in the next 50 years. 

We encourage All residents to watch this short, special KGW video -
“Are you ready for the big earthquake?”

Claremont Emergency Preparedness Helped Claremont Residents Stay Healthy

With the start of the 2020 global COVID emergency, Claremont began a partnership with Safeway to deliver COVID vaccines and boosters. That partnership resulted in five vaccine clinics in 2021 and 2022 which served Claremont community residents. Over a thousand vaccines were delivered in those clinics – including influenza vaccines! We will continue to monitor the COVID emergency status, and we plan to deliver a vaccine clinic in the fall for influenza protection!
