Vernon Public Safety Assists Neighboring Communities
Vernon's police and fire departments serve as a major emergency response and disaster preparedness resource for the Greater Los Angeles region. Vernon works closely with L.A. County and municipal public safety agencies in neighboring cities to offer essential public safety resources and assistance to neighboring communities at times of an emergency through mutual aid agreements.
Vernon provides more police and fire emergency response mutual aid than the city requests through these agreements. Vernon's specialized emergency service hazardous materials and search-and-rescue units frequently lend their expertise at major public safety incidents throughout Southern California.
