Help Oakland Become More Resilient to Natural Hazards
The City of Oakland is in the process of updating its 2016-2021 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP). The LHMP serves as a meaningful guide to increasing the Oakland community’s resilience in the face of natural disasters, such as earthquakes, floods, extreme heat and fires. Help us understand what's important to you!

Please take 10 minutes to submit answers to a survey about Oakland’s risks to natural hazards. The information will help us understand what is important to you, which hazards impact you the most, and how you would like to see the City become more resilient to natural hazards.

Find more information and sign up for updates on our website.

Alameda County Vaccine Planning
The current COVID-19 vaccine supply is limited, and Alameda County is following the State’s vaccine prioritization guidance. As vaccine supplies increase, you will be able to get a vaccine through a County-administered point of dispensing (POD) or your health care provider.

Alameda County is currently in Phase 1a, and anticipates beginning Phase 1b in February (as vaccine supply allows). To receive a notification of when vaccine might be available for you, please fill out one of these forms:

Please note, this is NOT a registration to receive vaccine. The information you provide is kept confidential and will help Alameda County in its planning. The County will contact you with further details about where vaccines will be available when it is your turn. In the meantime, please protect yourself from COVID-19 by wearing a mask, keeping your distance from others, avoiding crowds, and washing your hands frequently.  


 
Apply for PG&E's Medical Baseline Program
PG&E residential customers who depend on power for certain medical and independent living needs may qualify for the Medical Baseline Program. The program includes a lower rate and extra notifications in advance of a Public Safety Power Shutoff. Signature by a qualified medical practitioner is not required at this time.
A Sharp Rise in Homicides in Oakland
The City of Oakland is facing a sharp rise in violent crime. Over the last seven days, we’ve had seven people tragically killed in Oakland. To date, our Homicide Division has already investigated 11 murders, compared to one at the same time last year.

The Oakland Police Department continues to direct resources to areas most impacted by violence and trauma to deter further violence. OPD’s Ceasefire Team is collaborating with Mayor Libby Schaaf, the Department of Violence Prevention and community partners to identify additional strategies to focus the City’s attention towards reducing gun violence. Collectively, we are working to provide assistance and support to loved ones and traumatized communities.
