What drives you to be prepared for disasters? (September 1st - 30th, 2018)

What drives you to be prepared for emergencies? This National Preparedness Month, the County of San Diego Office of Emergency Services (OES) and Lyft want to help steer you in the right direction so you can be as prepared as possible for wildfires and other disasters down the road.

That is why the first 2,000 residents to register for AlertSanDiego this September will get a code for $10 off one Lyft ride* whenever you need one within San Diego County. (How cool is that?!)

AlertSanDiego is the regional mass notification system used by fire, law enforcement and emergency response personnel to notify residents and businesses in San Diego County impacted by, or at risk of being impacted by, an emergency or disaster with critical information and protective actions (such as evacuations). All listed and unlisted landlines are already in this system, however, cell phones are not. Registering your cell phone number, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone number and/or email with AlertSanDiego ensures that you will be notified on these devices when a disaster affects your area, no matter where you are.


Please note, the Lyft ride credit is for regular use, not for emergency situations. Separately, Lyft continues to work within San Diego County through its Relief Rides program, responding during natural disasters and other crises while extending Lyft’s reach to others in need.

*One Lyft code per person, per address or phone number. Code is unique to each registrant and may only be used within San Diego County by new and existing Lyft users. Ride Codes will be sent out via email and mail by no later than September 30, 2018 and are valid for use until December 31, 2018.
