In an emergency, the City of Alhambra will respond through a collaborative effort with local, State and Federal law enforcement agencies, including police and fire services, emergency health providers, the Alhambra Unified School District, the faith-based community, the American Red Cross, and private industry. The City's Emergency Operations Center (EOC), operating out of the Office of the Chief of Police, will be activated in an emergency.

The EOC brings together resources and personnel to make decisions and coordinate the flow of information and strategies required to deal effectively with the crisis. Alerting public officials, shelter/evacuation, search and rescue, and resource mobilization are all part of the response mode. Because local officials and relief workers may not be able to reach everyone right away, it is critically important to make emergency preparedness plans before a disaster occurs.
