The upcoming ADAPT Community Meeting, which helps us prepare for emergencies, will be held Saturday, July 13th  9 AM to 10:30 AM at Holbrook Palmer Park Jennings Pavilion, 150 Watkins Avenue, Atherton.  Please note the Jennings Pavilion will now be our new meeting place for the next few years.

ADAPT’s sole mission, in partnership with the Atherton Police Department, is to train and organize Atherton residents to be resilient, response capable and recovery able in the event of a Town-wide emergency or disaster event.

             A message from Chief Steve McCulley - Atherton Police Department

“Few people think about disaster preparedness until a disaster actually occurs.  None of us can forget the images of people stranded In the Santa Rosa fires or the Monticeto floods.  Natural and man-made disasters can strike suddenly without warning, leaving you and your family at risk. As your Chief of Police, I strongly encourage you to join ADAPT, the Atherton Disaster and Preparedness Team. It’s your responsibility to get prepared by being informed, having a plan, and acquiring enough food, water and supplies for at least 7 days."
