Welcome to the Simi Valley Office of Emergency Services
The Simi Valley Office of Emergency Services is dedicated to developing, implementing, and maintaining programs to prepare the City for natural, manmade, or technological disasters.
Are You Ready to ShakeOut?
The Great California ShakeOut is held annually on the third Thursday of October. It is a day of special events featuring the largest earthquake drill ever, organized to inspire Californians to get ready for big earthquakes, and to prevent disasters from becoming catastrophes.
What we do now, before a big earthquake, will determine what our lives will be like afterwards. Visit the Great California ShakeOut page for more information.
Emergency Notification System - VC AlertThe City of Simi Valley uses VC Alert, a high-speed emergency notification system, to deliver critical messages (voicemail, email, and texts) about local emergencies and other important community news. VC Alert may be used to deliver alerts when there is a threat to the health or safety of residents. You may also sign up to receive community alerts.
The VC Alert Emergency Notification System database currently includes all listed and unlisted landline telephone numbers in Simi Valley that are serviced by AT&T. If you would like to be contacted on your cellular phone, work phone, TTY device, email, or fax, or via instant messaging, you must register that information using the opt-in portal. All information you provide will be kept strictly confidential. VC Alert is a free service. Please visit Ready Ventura County for more information.

The City's SEMS Multi-Hazard Functional Plan (MHFP) addresses the City of Simi Valley's planned response to extraordinary emergency situations associated with natural disasters, technological incidents, and national security emergencies.
