Emergency Management

The Emergency Management division works closely with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department Emergency Management Bureau, Orange County Fire Authority, Orange County Health Care Agency, American Red Cross, Doctor’s Ambulance, other county departments and agencies, and surrounding cities in order to provide the highest possible level of preparedness and coordination when disaster strikes.

Disasters can occur quickly and frequently without any advanced warning. Immediately after a disaster or wide-spread emergency, electricity, gas, water and telephone services may not be working. Public safety services, such as fire, law enforcement and health services may be extremely limited or unavailable due to the impact of the disaster.

The City of Laguna Hills encourages residents to join together to protect our families, friends and neighbors in case of an emergency. Here are some ideas on how to get prepared and stay informed:

  • Register for Alert OC, the City's emergency notification system
  • Get online preparedness training through American Red Cross
  • Attend the Laguna Hills Community Emergency Preparedness Academy
