The Mission of the Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Committee is to serve and safeguard our community through efficient and effective volunteer service, which helps protect life and property ensuring the best interest of our community. Critical to our program is coordinating the response of various community volunteer programs including; CERT Program (Community Emergency Response Team), Highland Riders large animal evacuation volunteers and Fire Watch communication volunteers with professional first responders. The community based program will help provide rapid and safe care for La Habra Heights' residents in the event of a major incident or large scale disaster. During non-emergency situations, our Committee focuses on public education and awareness to help increase the emergency preparedness of all residents in La Habra Heights. The Committee will also provide a conduit for public concern regarding public safety and fire related issues.
