​​National Preparedness Month

September is National Preparedness Month. National Preparedness Month is designed to encourage Americans to take simple steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, businesses, and communities. Whether it's September or any other month of the year, disaster can strike at any time without warning. Cal OES encourages all Californians to be prepared for when - not if - the next emergency will occur. How prepared are you?

Our office is delegated by the Governor to support and enhance all phases of emergency management which include Preparedness, Response, Recovery and Mitigation. The Planning and Preparedness Division identifies a number of plans, guidance materials, support information, points of reference, and other materials to assist in development of a successful all-encompassing preparedness program.
