Major emergencies and disasters can occur anytime and could significantly impact day to day activities for some or for all.  The Norwalk Office of Emergency Management focuses on providing education, training, and guidance to minimize impacts and to bring the City back to normalcy effectively, and as soon as possible, after a major emergency or disaster.

The Norwalk Office of Emergency Management works directly with the Los Angeles County Fire and Sheriff Departments and the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services to identify disaster risks / hazards and to develop strategies to prepare, respond and recover from devastating events.   City Staff trainings, drills, and disaster exercises are conducted on a regular basis.

Emergency Management staff are active in advocating the importance of whole community preparedness through presentations, events, and outreach efforts. Community Preparedness programs have been developed specifically for Norwalk residents, Schools and Businesses to educate and empower the community to be survivors versus victims.  Programs are made available through seminars, workshops, and training.
