Message from City of Compton Fire Chief Ronerick Simpson

To update Compton on our City’s status, the Compton Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is at Level 3. We are prepared when and if the need arises to activate.

The EOC has three levels of activation:

Level 3 - Normal operations.

Level 2 - Partial activation (only certain teams are activated).

Level 1 - EOC team is activated, including personnel from all assisting agencies, to support the response to a major incident or credible threat.

We have supplies and equipment ready for activation. Currently we have a 10-day supply of food for the EOC if it would need to be fully activated. We also continue to increase supplies.

Activation protocols on the fire department’s response to our patients have already been put in place. Preparation is key. 

I will keep you informed as new information presents itself. Thank you and be safe.
