Emergency preparedness helps to minimize loss of life, property, and resources resulting from major emergencies, disasters, or other complex incidents. Our aim is resilience, or the ability to recover from or adjust easily to emergencies
The Department collaborates with local cities, special districts, community organizations, regional partners, and other public- and private-sector entities to promote emergency preparedness and improve incident response. Together, we identify hazards, develop emergency and mitigation plans, coordinate response activities, and train incident personnel.
