An important part of the City’s disaster preparedness program involves developing a partnership with local businesses to prepare and effectively respond to disasters.

During a disaster, businesses and non-profit organizations may be able to provide our firefighters, local law enforcement personnel and emergency management staff with desperately needed goods and services. To facilitate the delivery of these resources to those in need, the Encinitas Fire Department maintains an Emergency Resource Directory, which can be used to quickly identify vendors should there be a need to purchase essential goods and services after a disaster strikes.

If you are willing to provide crucial assistance during a disaster and would like to be included within this Directory, please download this questionnaire and return it to us by e-mail, fax at (760) 633-2818, or mail to the following address: Encinitas Fire Department, 505 South Vulcan Avenue, Encinitas, CA 92024. The information you provide will be kept confidential and will only be used in emergencies by authorized City of Encinitas personnel.
