get involved

Del Norte County is a small, rural, and isolated community. That means that when things get serious, we have to rely on one another. The resilience of our community as a whole depends on the preparedness actions and contributions of individuals, local businesses, nonprofits, and others. Whether you have time, expertise, supplies, or equipment available - your community needs you!
