When emergencies happen in Laguna Beach, we can't alert you if we can't reach you.
The City of Laguna Beach has installed 21 speakers around town. We can activate them to provide emergency alerts and warnings to residents and offer instructions to the community during an emergency, such as shelter-in-place or evacuate. We periodically conduct tests of our Outdoor Warning System to ensure all speakers function as intended. For a map of the Outdoor Warning System locations, click here.
