The City of Ventura uses VC Alert, a new high-speed emergency notification system to deliver critical messages (voicemail, email, texts) about local emergencies and other important community news. The system enables officials to provide essential information quickly to each resident in Ventura.
The VC Alert database currently includes some landline, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and cellular telephone numbers. However, residents and businesses are encouraged to register online to ensure that real-time emergency messages are received.
You may select to receive important messages such as evacuation notices directly to your home phone, cell phone, work phone, email, or text
In addition to emergency information, you may also select to receive messages regarding crime alerts, road closures, public meetings or other community events. You can also choose the locations you want to be contacted about - such as your parents’ home, your workplace and your child’s school.
Residents are encouraged to sign up and receive real-time emergency messages should a critical situation occur in your neighborhood.
Participating cities include: City of Camarillo, City of Fillmore, City of Moorpark, City of Ojai, City of Oxnard, City of Port Hueneme, City of Santa Paula, City of Thousand Oaks, City of Ventura, and the unincorporated areas of Ventura County.
