Budget Fact Sheet: Emergency Services & Disaster Response


The state has experienced an unprecedented number of emergencies and disasters in recent years, including but not limited to record-breaking wildfires and the pandemic. Most recently, widespread and sustained storms created flooding, mudslides and power outages. Counties, particularly human services departments, are at the front line of disaster response and recovery efforts, and support is needed to ensure these tasks do not interfere with the day-to-day operations of the critical safety net programs counties also operate.
