Emergency Preparedness

Emergency Preparedness in Westlake Village

In response to the potential of floods, fires, storms, earthquakes, and other natural disasters, the City has created an emergency preparedness program encompassing a comprehensive Emergency Operations Plan, along with a highly organized, all-volunteer Disaster Response Team. Under the City’s plan, the City Manager serves as the emergency operations director responsible for the implementation of the State Emergency Management System Multi-Hazard Function Plan within the organization. Activities include training staff and volunteers in preparation of a disaster, and coordinating responses with other public safety contract agencies such as the Los Angeles County Sheriff, the Lost Hills Station, the L.A. County Fire Department, etc.

Hazard Mitigation Survey

The City collaborates with the cities of Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Hidden Hills, and Malibu on a Hazard Mitigation Plan. The plan, which is updated every five years, takes a look at all forms of potential hazards (earthquake, wildfire, floods, etc.) within the region and identifies mitigation efforts that can be undertaken either regionally or by each City. Please take a moment to take the Hazard Mitigation Plan Community Survey below to assist the City in its mitigation efforts.
