Training & Exercises
Emergency Management today is a continually evolving and rapidly changing industry that requires a constant and coordinated effort in training and exercises. As history has proven, catastrophic events have had significant impacts on all services and systems that support our society. Realizing that local governments are responsible for restoring these services and systems, in the most efficient and expeditious manner, the County of Imperial has implemented an emergency staff development program. This program provides training management system that enables County employees to perform duties during times of disaster or emergency while acting in the capacity of Disaster Service Workers (DSW), Emergency Operations Center (EOC) staff, or Building Evacuation Team (BET) members. The Imperial County Office of Emergency Services (OES) manages the program with the support of the Board of supervisors, the County Executive Officer, all department heads, managers, and employees.
