EMERGENCIES

In the case of Fire, Medical or Criminal activity, CALL: 911

The leadership of the Mount Hermon Community organization is deeply committed to the safety and well-being of all residents. To that end, it falls upon each of us individually to do what we can to make the community safer and to fully prepare for emergencies, large and small. We live in an area that is served by a volunteer fire department that is second to none. And yet, we must prepare as individuals to be the first responder when the circumstance calls for such. Whether house fire or wildfire, earthquake, medical emergency, power outage, fallen tree or flood, each one of us can be a part of the Community Emergency Response Team that will make an important difference in the lives of our friends and neighbors. Help Mount Hermon Community by attending a Santa Cruz County Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) course – Find More Details Here.

For trees across roads, water main breaks and things requiring Mount Hermon Association to respond to with efficiency, call the main number for Mount Hermon Association: (831) 335-4466.  During normal business hours, this telephone is staffed and the maintenance crew is instantly available by radio.  During off-hours, the main number is automated to immediately send a pager message to on-call personnel.  Don’t hang up!  Follow the automated instructions and leave a detailed message including a callback telephone number.  Stay off your telephone so you can receive the callback.  Leaving multiple messages ties up your phone.

The Mount Hermon Community wants to be of assistance with other types of emergencies.  Our volunteers can become over-worked with dead batteries, leaky pipes and ordinary maintenance chores that should be handled by paid professionals.  While these are not life-threatening emergencies, if you do need help, telephone one of us in the Community.
