The Santa Fe County Fire Prevention Division office has moved to the Public Safety Complex located at 35 Camino Justicia off of NM 14
(across from the Adult Detention Center).
Our staff is still unpacking and getting settled so we ask for your patience during this transition.
Assemble a Disaster Kit
You may need to survive on your own after a disaster. This means having your own food, water, and other supplies in sufficient quantity to last for at least three days (for each family member). Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone immediately. You could get help in hours, or it might take days.
Basic services such as electricity, gas, water, sewage treatment, and telephones may be cut off for days, or even a week or longer. Or, you may have to evacuate at a moment’s notice and take essentials with you. You probably will not have the opportunity to shop or search for the supplies you need.
Basic Disaster Supplies
Water- Store one gallon of water per person per day in plastic containers for drinking and sanitation.
Food- Store food that won't go bad and does not have to be heated or cooked. Choose foods that your family will eat, including protein or fruit barsm dry cereal, granola, canned foods and juicesd, peanut butter, jerky, dried fruit, nuts, and crackers.
