To foster efficient, streamlined service delivery to people affected by disasters, while eliminating unnecessary duplication of effort, through cooperation in the four phases of disaster:

  1. Preparation
  2. Response
  3. Recovery
  4. Mitigation


To create the most resilient community possible to safeguard our way of life.


SAFER Santa Rosa County is a humanitarian association of independent organizations who may be active in all phases of disaster.

SAFER Santa Rosa is not a competing or exclusionary organization. SAFER Santa Rosa is intended to be a network for organizations active in disaster. Each SAFER member organization will maintain its own identity and independence while closely collaborating with other SAFER Santa Rosa member organizations.
