Disaster Planning

  • COPE Overview
    COPE stands for Citizens Organized to Prepare for Emergencies. This is a city-wide program in Santa Rosa whose purpose is to organize neighborhoods to deal with earthquakes and other disasters.
    When the big one hits emergency crews and hospitals will be swamped, and roads may be impassable. We could be on our own for days or even weeks – so organizing at the neighborhood level is essential.
    The first step in organizing was to divide Lomita Heights into manageable areas, which we call “sectors.” Each sector has a leader or leaders.
    If you are a resident of the Lomita Heights area, we encourage you to do the following:
    Fill out a COPE Census Form.
    Contact the leader for your sector.
    Review the information on What to Do after an earthquake.
    You may want to print some of the information on this site, since Internet access may not be available after a disaster.
    If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please feel free to contact:

  • After the Shaking Stops

What to Do Immediately After An Earthquake

  • Check to see phones were not shaken off hooks. Only use phones for emergency calls.
  • Check the situation, Call for backup if necessary, and Care for victims without jeopardizing your safety.
  • Put out small fires and clean up spills. If fire is larger than a trash can, leave room, and close door.
  • If safe, take a walk around your home and carefully look for damage.
  • Go to your prearranged COPE neighborhood meeting site to report what you have seen.
  • Get car out of garage and load it with supplies to prepare for evacuation, if necessary.
  • Call your out-of-state contact to check on safety of family members and relay messages.
  • Turn radio to KZST 100.1 FM or KSRO 1350 AM.
  • Meeting & Evacuation

  • Medical Response
  • Medical Response

    Medical Response is the ability of our neighborhood to respond to those injured in the event of a major disaster. We will need to be able to treat non life-threatening injuries as the hospitals will be overwhelmed. Currently there are four of us here with medical backgrounds committed to an organized medical response.

    What Will We Be Able To Do?

    The first step will be triage. The goal is to identify and transport out those seriously injured and to treat the walking wounded. Injuries that may be common in a disaster are open wounds, burns and fractures. Terra Linda Court has been identified as a flat space where triage could be set up.

    Are We Prepared?

    Yes, we have a beginning. Last summer’s BBQ raised approximately $150.00 for medical supplies. We currently have three filled medical bins ready to treat injuries. The goal is one bin per team.

    How You Can Help

    We need more volunteers. A major disaster will require many people to help triage, treat and transport victims. Whether you have a medical background or not, we could use your help. We also need more donations for medical supplies. Each bin cost approximately $75.00. If we want one medical bin per team, spread through out the neighborhood, we will need to raise more money.

    I currently have one medical bin that needs a home. If you are willing to store a bin at your home or volunteer to help, please contact me.

    Thank you!
