Disaster Preparedness | Launch of ready.lakecountyca.gov  

LAKE COUNTY, CA – The Lake County Office of Emergency Services announces the launch of ready.lakecountyca.gov: a one-stop public webpage to obtain preparedness, response and recovery information.

All hazards preparedness is important for Lake County residents. Small steps can make a large impact during an emergency. Fire, law and emergency services are dedicated to life and property protection during an emergency and individual preparedness ensures resources are available to respond to the most critical needs.

Wildfire, earthquake, flood and severe weather are examples of hazards that could impact the area. Preparing for these involve some of the same steps:

  1. Get Alerts – Register for LakeCoAlerts (and remember each city operates their own alert and warning platforms)
  2. Know Your Zone
  3. Make a Plan
  4. Prepare your home
  5. Know your neighbors and community
  6. Remain vigilant.

Links to social media, weather forecasts, road conditions and community resources are included on the page in addition to interactive children’s activities. Contact links included on the page can be used to make suggestions for additional topics and information that the public would find helpful.
