​State of California Emergency Plan (NEW)

State of California Emergency Plan 2​017 (PDF) - On October 1, 2017, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. promulgated the 2017 edition of the State of California Emergency Plan (SEP). The SEP describes how response to natural or human-caused emergencies occurs in California. The plan is a requirement of the California Emergency Services Act (ESA), and describes:

    • Methods for conducting emergency operations;
    • The process for rendering mutual aid;
    • Emergency services of government agencies;
    • How resources are mobilized;
    • How the public is informed;
    • How continuity of government is maintained during an emergency;
    • Hazard Mitigation (actions to reduce risk); and
    • Preparedness and Recovery from disaster.


(NEW) 2017 State of California Emergency Plan Executive Summary

​​California Emergency Support Functions

The 2009 State of California Emergency Plan established the California Emergency Functions. The 2017 State of California Emergency Plan transitions from Emergency Functions (EFs) to Emergency Support Functions (ESFs). California Emergency Support Functions (CA-ESFs) consist of 18 primary disciplines or activities essential to addressing the emergency management needs of communities in all phases of emergency management. Led by a State agency, each CA-ESF is designed to bring together discipline-specific stakeholders at all levels of government to collaborate and function within the four phases of emergency management: mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery. At the state level, the CA-ESFs consist of an alliance of State agencies, departments, and other stakeholders with similar discipline-specific responsibilities. This grouping will allow each CA-ESF to collaboratively mitigate, prepare for, cohesively respond to, and effectively recover from an emergency.

Below are the original Emergency Functions Executive Summary documents.

Contact information for each Emergency Support Function can be found in the EF Points of Contact document below.
