Welcome to the County of Lake, Office of Emergency Services ("Lake OES")! Our mission is to protect the persons, property and environment of Lake County in the event of an emergency through planning, training and coordination with responders, local government and community stakeholders. Lake OES is committed to providing effective emergency services in a forward-thinking and cost-effective manner.
Lake County is developing an update to their 2012 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan. Floods, drought, wildfires, and severe weather are just a few of the hazards of concern to Lake County. While natural hazards such as these cannot be prevented, a Hazard Mitigation Plan forms the foundation for a community's long-term strategy to reduce disaster losses by breaking the repeated cycle of disaster damage and reconstruction. Additionally, only communities with a FEMA-approved Hazard Mitigation Plan are eligible to apply for both pre- and post-disaster mitigation grant funding and for lower costs of flood insurance to residents through the National Flood Insurance Program’s (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS).
