The Office of Emergency Services (OES) is Yolo County's department in charge of aligning emergency services including each city's disaster plans and accounting for the unincorporated areas within Yolo County.
In February, my colleagues and I on the Board of Supervisors received a presentation outlining the Office of Emergency Services' most recent work to revise and update the county's current disaster plan. This included valuable additions such as rallying points and evacuation routes that can be found online as well as outreach meetings all across the county.
The Office of Emergency Services is now meeting with county boards and agencies to collect input and feedback on how to move forward with their efforts. OES recently attended the March Commission on Aging & Adult Services meeting and Healthy Aging Alliance meeting in April where they delivered presentations and fostered discussion. These meetings help OES obtain feedback about how they can best accommodate and account for those who are aging or living with access and functional needs.
