Information & Updates


Preparedness Tips

The City of Stockton encourages citizens to use this checklist to prepare you and your family for storms and other natural disasters. Checklists are available on the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) website,

  • Plan for your family and pets (carriers, food, litter.)

Emergency Preparedness Checklist

  • Collect important documents (i.e., insurance policies, and vital records) to grab if you need to evacuate.
  • Create an easy-to-carry emergency supply kit.  Include basic food, water, medications, a flashlight, battery-powered radio, rain gear, and a first aid kit.  
  • Keep your car fueled in case the power is off at local gas stations.
  • Identify safe routes from your home or office to higher ground.
  • Establish an out-of-state "family contact," so friends and relatives know who to call to find out where you are.
  • Keep sandbags, plywood, plastic sheeting, lumber, and other materials handy for waterproofing.
  • If ordered to evacuate, do so immediately.  If stranded, move to the roof so rescuers can see you.
  • Avoid flooded roadways and waterways.  (Just six inches of water can sweep you away.)  If your car stalls in water, abandon it immediately and seek higher ground.



Should massive flooding occur from bodies of water and evacuations be necessary, City and County Police and Sheriffs would make in-neighborhood notifications.  The City and County would issue notifications through all available channels of communication, including media, social media, websites, etc., and the emergency broadcast system, which includes television, radio, and cell phone alerts.


Public Safety 

A natural curiosity exists to view firsthand rising water conditions, but local public safety agencies advise the following:

  • Rising water is dangerous.  Stay away from the water and off the levees.
  • Pedestrians and vehicles on levees are prohibited.  They pose a danger to the public and hinder emergency response and monitoring agencies.
