Emergency Services

Knowing what to expect and the steps to take in an emergency is the key to protecting yourself and your family.  Disasters can happen anytime and anyplace.  When a disaster strikes, you may have only a short time to respond or prepare for the consequences.  An accidental release of a chemical could mean a need to shelter-in-place or an immediate evacuation.  A winter storm could confine your family to your home.  An earthquake could cut off basic services like gas, water, and electricity for days to the entire community.  The effects of a disaster can be sudden and devastating.

The County of San Bernardino has been the site of many declared disasters in the last few years, some of which affected the City of Victorville. Whether a disaster is natural – flood, earthquake, wildfire – or manmade, such as a hazardous materials spill or terrorist incident – the Office of Emergency Services wants you to be prepared. The information on this page will help equip you and your family with the knowledge to deal with any type of disaster.

If you would like more information, please contact the City's Emergency Services Coordinator:
