Don’t wait! Prepare now!
With recent natural disasters devastating communities in our country and beyond, the City is reminding residents to sign up for its mass notification system designed to keep the public informed of emergencies.
Mission Viejo in 2008 was one of the first cities to implement AlertOC– a county-wide notification system funded by the County of Orange. The system gives City officials the ability to communicate with residents about time-sensitive issues, which could include planned and unforeseen emergencies or public-safety matters.
By registering with AlertOC, time-sensitive voice messages from the County or City in which you live or work may be sent to your home, cell or business phone. Text messages may also be sent to cell phones, e-mail accounts and hearing impaired receiving devices. To register as a Mission Viejo resident or business, click here.
