City of Temecula’s Youth Emergency Preparedness Program (YEPP)

The City of Temecula, in collaboration with FEMA, is excited to present the City’s second annual Youth Emergency Preparedness Program (YEPP). In addition to educating youth about emergency preparedness and all-hazardous events that affect our region (i.e. earthquakes, floods, droughts, fires, terrorism, etc.), participants of the program will receive hands on experience managing the City’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) via a simulated tabletop exercise. Not only will youth learn about regional hazards, they will also understand the decision making that takes place to ensure the continuity of essential City services in the event of a catastrophic emergency.

Temecula Mayor Mike Naggar states, “In the event of an emergency, preparedness is critical. One of the ways to prepare our community is to educate our future leaders. This program will give an insight on how our city government prepares, responds, recovers, and mitigates emergencies that occur.”
