1.  Emergency Notification System

The City's Emergency Notification System allows Lake Forest Police and Fire to more efficiently reach out to the public in case of an emergency event. Residents should continue to call 911 in case of an emergency.

Examples of times when the emergency system can be utilized include instances of: drinking water contamination, utility outage, evacuation notice and routes, missing persons, fires or floods, chemical spills or gas leaks, and other public safety emergency incidents where rapid and accurate notification is essential for life safety.

Lake Forest resident and business landline telephone numbers have been downloaded from telephone company records. To add a cell phone or work phone to the notification list and customize your contact information, please complete or modify the registration form.

You may update your contact information or modify it at any time by logging into the Emergency Notification System.  Please click on the Code Red icon below.  To download the Code Red Mobile Alert app, click here.
