Who is Cal OES?

As part of Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr.’s Reorganization Plan to realign public safety programs and strengthen the emergency management system in the state, the California Emergency Management Agency has changed its name to the California Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) on July 1, 2013.

What is this Website For?

  1. CEMA,

    This site is definitely so helpful for everyone in our Deaf community.

    May you assist me how do I subscribe the CEMA alerts in the area of Inland Empire

    Thank you,

    Advocacy Specialist

    • Hi Elvis,
      Might I suggest to you (if no one else has) to go to the CalEMA website and follow them on Twitter. I believe they tweet updates often, though I don’t know how to specifically filter for Inland Empire… There must be a way!

      Good luck!

  2. I just discovered this blog. I’m really glad that this agency is going out of its way to be more social with the people of California and the world. It is extremely helpful and informative.

    Thank you! This would be my “dream” department to work.
