LATEST MESSAGES (CAL FIRE):
Many residents feel left behind in Orange County’s massive vaccination efforts.
County officials won’t say much about how they purchased the Othena vaccine app that is frustrating so many residents. They are also going silent on ongoing virus outbreaks in jails, homeless shelters and among county workers.

This weekend’s earthquake, centered in the community of Ridgecrest, is a stark reminder that we are all behind in terms of being ready for the big quake. Voice of OC has been working on a disaster page project this summer, with the aim of providing readers with solid coverage and resources on disaster prep and response across Orange County. Help us source and fund the page.
When they review their contract with the Red Cross Tuesday, county supervisors will get a chance to confirm the budgets, staff and volunteers the charity has in place in Orange County for large disasters.
