Emergency Management

The Office of Emergency Services (OES) provides free educational services to the entire Morgan Hill community to prepare, respond, and recover from emergencies and disasters, both natural and man-made.

Listos (ready) is an opportunity for our Spanish-speaking community to become prepared for the next large-scale emergency. The training reviews 5 easy steps we all can take towards preparedness. Listos is available on our City’s YouTube page, which also includes the "Do 1 Thing" campaign monthly series in Spanish and the 2024 Disaster Preparedness 10-Minute Workshop videos presented in English and Spanish. Disaster preparedness info can be presented to groups in person by contacting Office of Emergency Services.
