In efforts to provide more testing opportunities for San Bernardino County residents, community testing events are being held throughout the county. At these testing events, samples are collected by inserting a swab up the nostril or into the mouth to the throat. These samples are then sent to a laboratory for COVID-19 testing. Events are free of charge and do not require health insurance.


On May 14, 2020, the County of San Bernardino launched the COVID-Compliant Business Partnership Program to support local small businesses and help ensure ongoing compliance with State and County health orders and direction.

Emergency Operations Plan

The City of Montclair’s Emergency Operations Plan was approved by the California Emergency Management Agency (Cal EMA) on September 26, 2009. This plan provides guidance for response to the City's most likely and demanding emergency conditions. It places emphasis on those unusual and unique emergency conditions that will require extraordinary response when a natural or man-made disaster occurs. This plan meets the requirements of the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS) for the purpose of emergency management. It is organized into three parts that are listed below:

  • Part One (Basic Plan): Overall organizational and operational concepts relative to response and recovery, as well as an overview of potential hazards.
  • Part Two (Emergency Organization Functions): Description of the emergency response organization and emergency action checklists.
  • Part Three: Supporting and legal documents to the Emergency Operations Plan.

Hazard Mitigation Plan

Under the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA 2000), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) requires a Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) from local governments and certain special districts, counties, and states within the country that wish to receive federal mitigation funds if they should become available.

The Montclair HMP identifies ways to mitigate hazards prior to their occurrence to reduce deaths, injuries, and property damage. This plan identifies hazards that could potentially affect Montclair and also gives historical data, economic factors, vulnerability assessments, mitigation costs, and estimated losses resulting from the identified hazards.

This plan was approved by FEMA in April 2005. In accordance with Section 201.6(c)(4) of 44 CFR, this plan is to be monitored, evaluated, and updated at least every five years. In an effort to update its HMP, the City of Montclair participated in the 2010 San Bernardino County Operational Area Multi-Jurisdictional Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan process. The Montclair City Council adopted the updated HMP by Resolution No. 11-2898 on May 2, 2011. The updated plan was approved by FEMA on May 23, 2011.

In order to develop a more comprehensive approach to reducing the effects of natural hazards, the City of Montclair invites the public to review the Hazard Mitigation Plan (PDF) and provide comments. Comments that are submitted will be considered during the next update planned for May 2016. Comments may be submitted in writing to the following address:
