The Ventura County Sheriff’s Emergency Services team is dedicated to protecting life, property, and the environment by leading the development and implementation of a cooperative countywide plan for emergency preparedness, mitigation, response, and recovery, drawing from all local, state, and federal resources.  We coordinate preparedness and disaster response with the ten cities, public and private organizations and community and civic groups to build community resilience. Some areas of Ventura County have been particularly vulnerable to natural disasters.  This menu contains important discussions of ongoing efforts to inform and protect Ventura County residents in these areas.
