Emergency Alerts & Communications

In the event of a disaster, look for notifications from the AlertSCC via telephone, email, SMS and/or fax. If you are not registered, you may do so now at the AlertSCC Opt-In/Out Portal Page. Also check for info on: the Emergency Communications page of this website; the City Channel (Channel 26 on Comcast Cable or Channel 99 on AT&T); Radio Cupertino 1670 AM (which has a limited range, especially at night); the City’s Twitter feed; the City’s Facebook page; and Nextdoor Cupertino.     

Reporting Locations

If a disaster is occurring, and you are unable to make a phone call, you may go to the nearest ARK or other reporting location for assistance. These locations will be staffed by trained volunteers. Also see: Emergency Information & Reporting Locations in Cupertino (PDF).

Cooling Centers

During times of unusually high temperatures, the City will designate Quinlan Community Center as a cooling center for those having difficulty managing the heat. When so designated, the center will provide a shaded area for pets, but owners must bring them in crates or on leashes and bring water bowls. Quinlan Community Center is located at 10185 N. Stelling Road, and can be reached at 408.777.3120. 

Disaster Assistance

In the event of a disaster, West Valley Community Services is the designated manager of disaster related donations and their distribution. DisasterAssistance.gov provides info on federal assistance when applicable.

Power Outages

Go to the PG&E electric outages page or the gas outages page for info. If there are downed power lines, treat them as if they are "live" or energized; keep yourself and others away from them; call 911 and then notify PG&E at 800.743.5002. During an outage, use battery-operated flashlights, not candles. If you have a generator, make sure it is properly installed by a licensed electrician; improperly installed generators pose a significant danger to PG&E crews. Unplug or turn off all electric appliances to avoid overloading circuits and causing fire hazards when power is restored. Simply leave on a single lamp to alert you when power returns, and then turn your appliances back on one at a time when conditions return to normal.
