What is an ARK?

Want to help your community be prepared? The City has storage containers, called ARKs, strategically located around the City that contain emergency response supplies used by our Community Emergency Response Teams, Medical Reserve Corps and Cupertino Amateur Radio Emergency Service.

These sites will be gathering places for the local community. Block Leaders or individuals can request assistance and receive information about the disaster at the ARKs. Currently, these gathering points are Lawson Middle School, Hyde Middle School, Garden Gate Elementary School, Monta Vista Fire Station, Seven Springs Homeowners Clubhouse and DeAnza College.

There are two resources that are not yet in place…perishable items and volunteer support staff.

The ARKs need cases of bottled water, batteries and other perishables. By adopting an ARK, you purchase one of the items, and agree to take back the item to use for yourself and replace it with a fresh item halfway through its shelf life. If you would like to adopt an ARK, download the donation form! You can offer to support any one of the ARKs and we’ll notify you when we will be collecting the items.
