Alert OC

Lake Forest's Emergency Notification System


The City of Lake Forest has partnered with the County of Orange to share in a county-wide emergency notification system known as AlertOC. AlertOC is a free web based subscription service that provides real-time information to affected communities in emergency situations. As part of the city’s emergency preparedness plan, AlertOC is capable of notifying thousands of subscribers by phone, email, text message, social media, and TTY/TDD within a few minutes of emergency.
