Our Mission Statement

The County Office of Emergency Services is committed to serving the public before, during and after times of emergency by promoting effective coordination between agencies, and encouraging preparedness of the public and organizations involved in emergency response.



On Saturday, August 23, 2014, the San Luis Obispo County Early Warning System sirens will be tested. Sirens will sound at noon and again at 12:30 pm for three minutes. This test does not require any action on the part of the public. The reverse 911 system will also be activated for residents and businesses within the Emergency Planning Zone between the hours of 9 am and noon.
