According to Harry Guy, the shipping container sitting in Los Altos full of emergency supplies is “a good start.” With more than 3,000 cubic feet full of first-aid kits, generators and shelters – to say nothing of shovels, hatchets and floodlights – Guy hopes that Los Altos will have enough equipment to deal with anything California throws at it.
In June 2015, the Los Altos City Council budgeted $15,000 for training materials, equipment, supplies and communication strategies for emergency preparedness. Los Altos would collaborate with Community Emergency Response Teams (CERTs), Block Action Teams and amateur radio operators to coordinate a response for emergencies.
