Emergency Preparedness Guidance
We hope that each resident of Montage at Mission Hills recognizes that emergency events may occur and it is important to be prepared to be self-sufficient for several days. The Montage at Mission Hills Homeowners Association cannot provide for and/or safeguard the safety and security of Association members in the event of an emergency, nor is the Association obligated to do so under the CC&R’s and/or California Civil Code.
We cannot control natural disasters, emergencies or unexpected attacks, but the impact of a disaster can be reduced if we are all prepared. Regardless of the type of event the residents of Montage at Mission Hills must assume primary responsibility for being prepared and respond in a manner appropriate to the event. External assistance may be expected, but it should not be relied upon as emergency response organizations must prioritize their resources. In some instances, response by outside agencies may not be possible or realistic in terms of the event. Therefore, individual resident preparedness is the foundation of any Association emergency preparedness program and response.

Personal and Family Preparation is Paramount
Each Association member is responsible for making his/her own preparations and/or taking precautions for an emergency. The Association strives to inform and encourage individuals to prepare their households. We will endeavor to provide information and web links on the montageatmissionhills.org that can be off assistance to residents in planning and preparing for an emergency response. We encourage residents to develop Neighbor to Neighbor relationships in preparing your personal response plan.
Neighbors Helping Neighbors
Montage at Mission Hills residents are encouraged to create there own informal neighborhood communication systems to ensure that they are aware of the emergency and the status of their neighbors. This system can be facilitated through an informal Neighbor Helping Neighbor system where residents are encouraged to self-structure and implement telephone calling lists and physical checks on neighbors identified as potentially needing assistance in an emergency. Consistent with the concept of “shelter in place” residents are encouraged to attempt to secure contact by telephone; however, direct contact will be appropriate in the event that telephone communications are not available consistent with safety and not in conflict with instructions from authorized public safety personnel.

Riverside County Early Warning Notification System for timely helpful information
The County of Riverside has instituted a system that uses telephones to alert residents and businesses in Riverside County who are affected, threatened, or might be endangered by an emergency event or a disaster.
The system uses phone numbers in the region’s 9-1-1 database to contact listed and unlisted land-line telephones. It is TTY/TDD capable. If the call is picked up by an answering machine, the system will leave a voice message.
Because the 9-1-1 database includes only land-line numbers, other phone numbers must be registered. If you have a voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) or cellular telephone and would like to be notified over the device, you must register those telephone numbers to be included in the notification system.
To register your VOIP or cellular telephone, please click the link below and complete the form. Each number will be added to the regional database within 60 days. It is important to note that each number registered can only be associated with one residential or business address in the system.
The telephone numbers you register below will be called only when a disaster or emergency affects the address associated with a telephone number.
