LA QUINTA EMERGENCY SUPPORT

The City of La Quinta’s Emergency Services Division is responsible for the City and the community’s preparation and response to natural and man-made disasters and emergencies. The primary city response agencies are: Fire; Law Enforcement; and Public Works (damage assessment, and repair of critical public facilities).

The city is not alone when there is a major disaster. As soon as there is a realization that a disaster has occurred that will probably be beyond the capability of the city’s response agencies, the city will request support from Riverside County and the county can assess the situation, start providing support, and, if necessary, can request support from the state.

County and state support comes in the form of “mutual aid” from other non-impacted jurisdictions. Additionally, at the county level, we have the first capability for providing: Medical care to include the operation of mass care facilities; Public Health support; Mental Health support; Care and sheltering (in coordination with the Red Cross); Animal care, and; Coroner operations.

The state can bring in more of these resources and additionally, can task the National Guard for support. The state can request support from the federal government. The bottom line is that La Quinta is not alone and when support comes in, it responds to direction from the city. One of the roles of the Trilogy Emergency Preparedness Committee is to make sure that the La Quinta Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is aware of our critical issues.

Contacting the La Quinta City Emergency Operations Center

During a disaster, the Trilogy Emergency Operations Center (EOC) has special radios that can communicate directly with the city’s EOC. This is why it is important for Trilogy residents to provide their Block Captains and other Emergency Preparedness Committee teams with information on their status and needs. The way we get outside help to Trilogy is through La Quinta.

Emergency Notification System

The City of La Quinta with the County of Riverside has a new emergency early warning system and is called “Early Warning Notification System or “EWNS.” This new system provides improved methods for communicating to the community during emergencies and disasters.

This system will only be used for emergency purposes or critical issues requiring rapid and accurate notification.

Examples of times when the CodeRED system could be utilized:

  • Drinking water contamination
  • Evacuation notice and route
  • Missing person
  • Wildfires
  • Bomb threat
  • Law enforcement emergencies
  • Hazardous material spills

NOTE: Destructive earthquakes are self-announcing and generally will not result in a CodeRed message.
