Emergency Management


The Emergency Management Division is responsible for the operation of the City’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC). The EOC is the focal point for coordination of the City’s emergency planning, training, response, and recovery efforts for emergencies and major disasters.

Emergency Operations Center

The Emergency Operations Center prepares for emergencies and major disasters such as fires, floods, earthquakes, and acts of terrorism. The EOC also prepares for major planned events in the city that require involvement by multiple city departments and integration with outside agencies, such as schools, special districts, other cities, the county, state, and federal agencies, as well as the private sector.

Additional Operations

The City is involved in outreach, education, and community emergency preparedness activities, including the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training. The Emergency Management Division also coordinates the City’s participation in the VC Alert Notification System.
