The City of Riverside's Office of Emergency Management (OEM), also known as the City of Riverside Fire Department’s Emergency Services Division administers a comprehensive all-hazards community based emergency management program. Riverside OEM promotes a disaster resistant and resilient community through partnerships with all levels of government entities, businesses, non-governmental organizations and the residents and visitors of the City of Riverside.
The welfare and safety of city residents and visitors is of utmost importance to the Office of Emergency Management. The Office of Emergency Management plans and prepares for emergencies, incidents and events that will have an impact on the City of Riverside. OEM maintains a robust preparedness effort through our Community Emergency Response Team training and resident and city employee public education events. Working with partner organizations we work to identify and mitigate issues prior to an incident. OEM also coordinates the response and recovery efforts through the activation of our EOC.
Residents and community members are encouraged to visit the Office of Emergency Management's Ready Riverside website for emergency preparedness tips.
