Need help getting ready in case of disaster?

Why Prepare?

If an earthquake started rumbling or you noticed smoke in the hills on your commute, what would you do first? Do you know which types of disasters affect Orange County the most and how to prepare for them?

According to the 2009 Citizen Corps National Survey, more than 82% of U.S. residents are aware that emergency preparedness is important to handle disasters. Yet of these, most have made little, if any, actual preparations! What about you? Are you ready?

All of us need to take a role in helping protect each other and our families and friends in the event of an emergency. From the Yorba Linda fires to the Laguna Beach landslides to ever-present earthquakes, our county continuously faces emergency situations.

Developed by ReadyOC for the Orange County community, this website contains step-by-step advice on how to prepare for disasters, will help you to be ready when the time comes and provides you with a resource for information on how to respond or recover during an emergency situation. Used in conjunction with information and instructions from other local and county emergency management agencies and organizations, the information on this site will give you what you need to be prepared.

We know that the next emergency is coming. We just don’t know when or what kind it will be. But we can – and must – prepare now for the next emergency. Our family, friends and community depend on it.

Orange County residents can now download the ReadyOC app (available for iOs and Android). 

The app will help you:

  • Create an emergency kit.
  • Write your family emergency plan.
  • Learn what to do before, during and after OC’s top emergencies.
  • Sign up for AlertOC.
