Ready, Set, Go - House on Fire

Residents living in neighborhoods near high-risk fire area are encouraged to be ready for wildfires by practicing fire safety. Ready, Set, Go! gives you the tools to protect you, your family, property and community from wildfires. Firefighters train hard to prepare for wildfires—residents need to do the same!

For more information on how you can be ready for wildfires, visit the Orange County Fire Authority's Ready, Set, Go! safety program.

Stay Connected During Emergencies

Residents are encouraged to sign up for AlertOC and Nixle for text notifications during emergencies.

Public Safety Power Shutoffs

During high winds, Southern California Edison (SCE) may de-energize transmission lines to minimize wildfire risk. In Lake Forest, the power shutoffs would most likely impact residents in the foothills. 

While the City will warn residents of potential Public Safety Power Shutoffs, residents are encouraged to visit www.sce.com/psps for more information and to sign up for alerts from SCE.
