Disaster Programs

In times of crisis, OneOC is your partner to volunteer.

OneOC Emergency Volunteer Center (EVC)

The devastating nature of disasters finds us at our most compassionate and spontaneous as we look for ways to be involved in disaster response and recovery.

Orange County residents have always been moved to support their local communities in times of need, even showing up on the front lines or in places where victims are being treated – which can be ineffective and dangerous at times.

The OneOC EVC program is a program that supports emergency response officials throughout Orange County, by engaging and safely deploying these spontaneous volunteers to respond to critical needs and/or long term recovery.

The first step in disaster relief is Be Prepared.

Orange County’s Ready OC! site provides residents with kits, plans, and information.

Sign up with AlertOC, a mass notification system designed to keep Orange County residents and businesses informed of emergencies and certain community events. 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, email accounts and hearing impaired receiving devices.

To make sure your family is prepared, CaliforniaVolunteers launched a WE Prepare disaster preparedness initiative to help you develop a plan. The site includes a critical Disaster Supplies Checklist.
