When emergencies happen in Temecula, we can't alert you if we can't reach you.
The City of Temecula is committed to keeping its residents safe. To do this, the City regularly participates in simulated emergency training to assess the systems in place. In the event of a large-scale disaster, emergency or incident, the City will activate its Emergency Operations Center and use the following information systems to keep all residents alert and up-to-date on conditions.
Sign up and register for these alerts:
This geo-targets city-wide mass notification system is designed to keep people who live or work in Temecula informed of important information during emergency events.

Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA)
The City of Temecula is an authorized sender of Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) which sends a text warning directly to mobile devices in the case of significant event or disaster. You do not have to sign up for this system.
Emergency Alert System (EAS)
The County of Riverside has the capability to interrupt radio and television broadcasts across the media market to deliver safety instructions. The National Weather Service is the agency that most often activates the EAS system within Riverside County. Currently, this system can only refine the alert area to the entire County of Riverside, not specifically Temecula.
The City's website provides the most up-to-date and official information by Fire, Police and City staff. Emergency information will be linked from the home page, making it easy to find emergency. Maps are also used to display information such as affected area(s), red cross shelters, and donation/first aid donation locations.
