Welcome to the Alert Chicago!


Response is defined as actions taken immediately before, during and directly after an emergency occurs to save lives, minimize damage to property and enhance the effectiveness of recovery. Response to an event is the function of law enforcement, emergency medical services, fire-rescue departments and first responders. When a large-scale event has occurred it is important that the response be coordinated. This generally means activating the City of Chicago Emergency Operations Center to assure central coordination.
