SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - San Diegans are at risk from earthquakes, wildfires, floods and tsunamis but there are tools to get ready for an emergency during National Preparedness Month.

The San Diego County Office of Emergency Services created the ' Know Your Hazards ' website, which allows you to type in your address and determine which disasters pose a threat to your home or business.

Federal, state and San Diego County governments also have resources available for you.
