Emergency Communications

Success in saving lives and property is dependent upon timely dissemination of warning and emergency information to citizens in threatened areas. With the potential threat of earthquakes, wildfires, storms, and hazardous materials spills, it is important for residents to know how the Port of Los Angeles, City of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles County Operational Area would notify the community before, during, or after an emergency. It is essential that information be provided timely. Listed below are the various ways emergency information — alerts and warnings — may be disseminated to the community.

EAS (Emergency Alert System)

Emergency information is broadcast directly via the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to the various media outlets. For emergency events and conditions of concern a broadcast message is disseminated to the public via radio and television stations. The message is a voice message only, with text messages scrolling on the television screen.

Cable Television

The City has an agreement with the various Cable franchises to provide the public with alert and notification of various disaster situations via EAS. The City’s cable channel 35 (LA CityView) will also provide directions to the community via scrolled information and through live delivery. (LA CityView is not available with satellite providers).

AM Radio

Listen to KNX 1070 AM for regional emergency alert information for the Los Angeles County area.

Satellite Radio

SiriusXM complies with FCC regulations requiring them to carry national emergency alert announcements similar to those heard on terrestrial radio. SiriusXM provides nationwide alerts from the EAS on all of its channels. State and local emergency alert messages and information specific to major metropolitan markets are provided on SiriusXM’s local traffic and weather channels (channels 132 to 140, with Los Angeles specifically on 140). SiriusXM does not provide state and local emergency alert messages on any of its other channels. SiriusXM also carries weekly and monthly emergency alert test announcements on all channels. These tests can be heard only on our satellite channels; they cannot be heard on their audio channels heard online, on Sprint phones, the DISH Network (Sirius packages), or on AT&T or Alltel (XM packages).

Amateur Radio

The Emergency Operations Organization (EOO) of the City of Los Angeles has designated the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) to manage its amateur radio program under the Auxiliary Communication Service (ACS) agreement with the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services. The City of Los Angeles Auxiliary Communication Service Radio Net meets each Monday evening at 19:30 (7:30 p.m.) for the purpose of passing radio traffic to ACS members. The LAFD manages the ACS Monday Night Radio Net for the EOO of the City of Los Angeles. All Amateur Radio Operators not affiliated with the Los Angeles City ACS are invited to monitor the Net or are requested to take their traffic to another frequency until the Net is completed. If you are a licensed Amateur Radio Operator (aka ‘Ham’), or, you wish to become one through our Mentoring Program, we welcome you to join or support the efforts of the LAFD Auxiliary Communications Service (ACS).

The LAFD ACS Radio Net operates each Monday night at 7:30 p.m. on:

147.30 MHz (+) PL-110 or 224.68 MHz (-) PL-114

Routine matters such as current events, upcoming training and drills are addressed during the Monday Night Radio Net. The ACS is an integral part of the LAFD’s communications infrastructure and has the full support of LAFD Administration. ACS volunteers are considered vital in supporting a wide variety of Department operations, especially in times of duress.

Emergency Digital Information Service (EDIS)

The State of California issues emergency notification via a digital service called EDIS. Individuals who are interested in getting these messages can subscribe for free at

Other warning notification systems used in the City of Los Angeles include:

• Mobile emergency vehicles sirens and loud speakers

• Helicopters using public address systems

• Door to door notification by both Police and Fire, Neighborhood Watch Block Captains, and City personnel
