Our 10-week program typically runs between June and August each year in the Mather and Sacramento area. The program is designed to provide participants with an in-depth introduction to the world of emergency management, and insights into the State’s civil service hiring process.
Our interns are introduced to various Cal OES programs areas, as well as a handful of partner agencies. We aim to have our interns leave our program with a better idea of whether emergency management and/or civil service is the route for them.

Response Operations - Southern Region holds a 10-week program that runs between June and August each year in the Orange County area. The program is designed to provide participants with an in-depth introduction to the world of emergency management, emergency response, preparedness, and mitigation.
Through Regional Emergency Operations Center activations, field deployments, training sessions, weekly workgroups, and tours of public and private agencies that employ emergency management staff, we aim to provide a foundation and unique experiences for our interns and guide them on a career path in emergency management.
