Department Information

The California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive culture by hiring and retaining individuals from a variety of backgrounds and personal experiences. Our employees are empowered with the tools and resources necessary to meet our mission, while continuing to expand equity and inclusion efforts at all levels of the organization. We are committed to the spirit and work required to ensure the safety and resilience of every community in California.

The California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) is an emergency response, homeland security, and disaster recovery agency and as a result, is a dynamic and exciting place to work in a team-oriented environment. Cal OES provides training to enhance the understanding of emergency and incident management to all employees.

The Inland Region consists of primarily rural jurisdictions with a few large metropolitan cities. The geography for the Inland Region is vast and varied with terrain consisting of valley floor agricultural centers, grasslands, watershed areas, high desert regions, foothill regions and high elevation mountain ranges.

Inland Region employs 10 geographically dispersed emergency services coordinators and 2 Senior emergency services coordinators that serve as Cal OES liaisons and emergency management experts to the 31 counties, various state and local committees and workgroups.

During complex and high impact emergencies (e.g., wildfires, flooding, earthquake), staff work side-by-side with local emergency managers in County or City Emergency Operations Centers to coordinate state resources and relay information to the Regional Emergency Operations Center or the State Operations Center. Staff also assist to analyze gaps, and help resolve complex problems to minimize loss of life, property or the environment.

During tranquil periods, staff train with the Counties and Cities, review local emergency operations plans, exercise plans and processes, and update various policies and procedures as identified through After Action Reports. Regions also maintain the integrity of the Standardized Emergency Management System, by holding quarterly meetings of the Mutual Aid Regional Advisory Committees for each Mutual Aid Region. These meetings bring together all emergency management disciplines (fire, law, communication, etc.) within the region to discuss changes to laws/regulations, improvements to systems, technology advancements, funding opportunities and overall regional readiness.

In the event of an emergency, employees may be contacted and requested to report to work in the event of an emergency. This contact may be outside of your normal working hours (evenings/nights, weekends, and holidays). This service may require irregular work hours, work locations other than the official duty location, and may include duties other than those specified in your official position description. Travel requirements in support of emergency operations may be extensive in nature (weeks to months), with little advance notice, and you may be required to relocate to emergency sites.
