DISASTER PREPAREDNESS: All one has to do is pick up the newspaper, turn on the television or listen to the radio to know that disasters or emergencies happen every day. In California we are no strangers to wildfire, earthquakes, landslides and floods. Luckily here in Amador County, we live in a fairly safe and secure community. But if something did happen, would you know what to do, where to find information, do you have a plan? We are always saying it is not a matter of if a disaster strikes but rather a matter of when.
