CAP Riverside is doing its part to make sure that Riverside County, and in particular its vulnerable populations (elderly, disabled, homeless, and families with young children) are prepared for disaster when it strikes. We all know a major earthquake is inevitable, and the danger from wildfires, heat and high winds occur every year.
 
 
CAP Riverside has prepared and published a Disaster Plan.
