Are You Ready To Weather An Emergency?

Following last February’s record-breaking winter storm, it seemed clear that San Antonians simply weren’t ready — for the temperatures, the power outages and the resulting loss of water service. It was a catastrophe that affected all of us and it’s something we don’t want to experience ever again.

Emergencies happen. So SAWS has been working hard to make sure they don’t affect your water service in the future.

We’re building up resiliency in our power sources and work systems. And we’re providing you with tips and tools to help you “Be Ready” for a winter freeze or other emergencies.

From how to prepare water during a boil water notice to which emergency supplies to keep on hand, our resources will help you be ready for the unexpected. It’s all available in English and Spanish at saws.org/BeReady.
