CCWD Emergency Response
There is no emergency at this time.
CCWD Employee Emergency Communications Plan
After ensuring the safety of their families, all District employees are expected to report to work following an emergency event. A major disaster in the Bay Area, like an earthquake, may disrupt the District's typical communication infrastructure (e.g., phone, radios, e-mail) making it difficult for employees to know where to report or if their reporting location needs to change.
In recognition of expected post-disaster communication difficulties, the district has developed anEmployee Emergency Communication Plan to ensure all employees can obtain information of how they should respond to an emergency.
RAPID ALERT NOTIFICATION SYSTEM (RANS)
All Employees are required to signup with their emergency contact information
To improve CCWD’s overall emergency response and after hours communications, the District joined the Rapid Alert Notification System (RANS). It is a cloud-based system designed to let individuals and organizations manage their information securely and does not require access to your contact lists or other confidential information on your computer, phone or tablet. Agency or personal information is never sold and agency information is only available to authorized users. All employees are required to register with the system. Contact HR if you are unsure if you have signed up.
The system has the ability to deliver information and District staff reporting instructions by voice mail, email, text message, fax, and/or pager.
Update Your RANS information...you need to to it once every six months.

All CCWD Employees Are Disaster Service Workers
By state law, all District employees are declared to be “Disaster Service Workers.”
As a Disaster Service Worker, you will be called upon to support the activities of the District during an emergency situation. Your District identification card, which has Disaster Service Worker information on the back, will ensure authorities grant you access to designated areas that may be off limits to others.
