Welcome to the Del Norte County Office of Emergency Services.
The Office of Emergency Services (OES) coordinates the overall county response to disasters. OES is responsible for alerting and notifying appropriate agencies when disaster strikes; coordinating all agencies that respond; ensuring resources are available and mobilized in times of disaster; developing plans and procedures for response to and recovery from disasters; and developing and providing preparedness materials for the public.
In a disaster, your most immediate sources of help are the neighbors living around you. Neighbors Helping Neighbors is a program that will assist you in developing a neighborhood network that will be prepared to support each other in a disaster.
