This site is designed to be the go-to site for emergency information in the Idyllwild, Pine Cove and Mountain Center areas, such as fires, floods, earthquakes, road closures, hazardous storms and other pertinent information. If you enter your email address in the "subscribe" area on the right hand side of the page, you will be notified via email on your computer or mobile device the moment we post any new information on this blog. 

While MDP will attempt to keep subscribers in the know at all times, there may be periods of time that we will be unable to man the post.

Keeping the Idyllwild Emergency alerts alive.


Thank you for subscribing to Idyllwild If you find our emergency alerts useful, we are asking for your help and support in keeping these alerts coming.

Mountain Disaster Preparedness, an Idyllwild volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit, operates Idyllwild

This effort is made possible solely by volunteers who monitor official web sources from 8 AM to 7 PM each day of the week and send you the information.

Although our volunteers are dedicated to this cause, MDP is working on automating the road alerts which will allow us to continue the free service. Our volunteers will still have to physically monitor and interpret some road information. We remain committed to providing this service free to our subscribers, however the countless hours expended by our volunteers and costs to maintain the system are mounting.

We have responded to your request and separated the road and emergency alert subscriptions. Over the last year we sent over 850 alerts to 1800 subscribers.

We are asking you, our Idyllwild Emergency subscribers, for your support to help keep the alert service going.
