How do I know if something’s happening?


Most disasters give us some warning – maybe not always a lot, but some. You’ll want all the warning you can get. Here’s how…

AlertOC (Orange County)

  • Sign up to receive phone, email, or text notices when emergencies are happening or about to happen at home or at work.

Email and SMS Weather Alert Services (National Weather Service)

  • Want weather alerts sent to your email or phone? NWS doesn’t do that anymore – but it’s got a list of sources for you.

Southern California Edison

  • Sign up for notifications about outages and service alerts.

If you live in Buena Park and work somewhere else, or live somewhere else and work or play here, you should also get alerts from that “somewhere else.”
