Representatives from these agencies will share information with residents about emergency preparedness and flooding risks in Sacramento.

“Sacramento is a city surrounded by levees and while much of our city has been removed from the floodplain, there is still a risk of flooding. It is something that all of us should be aware of and prepare for,”  said Jones. “I encourage residents to come, be safe and flood ready.”
