What is RSS?

RSS has several meanings: Really Simple Syndication, Rich Site Summary, and RDF Site Summary where RDF in turn stands for Resource Data Framework. In any case it is a method of summarizing the latest news and information from a web site in a lightweight form that can be easily read by any of a number of news readers or news aggregators. The idea is to give you the ability to quickly obtain the latest news and updates from a site in a headline or news digest format. This in turn helps during high-traffic periods by reducing the load on the servers.

What do I need to use the RSS feeds?

To use our RSS feeds, you need a feed reader or news aggregator installed on your computer. These are applications that can be set to read the feeds on a recurring basis, generally once an hour or so.
Once you have installed a feed reader or news aggregator, you simply add the Be Prepared Yuba feed addresses to the list of feeds in the reader. The installation instructions for the readers will help you with that.

What are the feed addresses?

We currently offer two feeds, one for General Site Updates and one for Evacuation Notices.
Here are the addresses:
