About Yuba County OES

How Yuba County OES Protects Our CommunitiesOES Seal
The Yuba County Office of Emergency Services (OES) coordinates all emergency management between public safety and service providers during larger-scale or complex events-- your local law enforcement/fire department handles day-to-day calls. 

OES operates in four primary areas: Preparedness, Response, Recovery, and Mitigation.

To help prepare the County and other organizations for emergency response, OES also provides planning and training services.

During an emergency, the County uses the Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS) and the Incident Command System (ICS) to ensure close coordination between police, fire, military personnel, medical service providers, FEMA, and other agencies.

Plans have been developed to respond to any emergency event, and those plans are constantly being updated to make sure emerging threats are included and new technology incorporated.

Here are the plans used by Yuba County OES:

Emergency Operations Center (EOC)
A command post called an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is activated to provide a unified headquarters for all emergency personnel, and is headquartered at the Yuba County Government Center. The EOC can be sized to deal with small or large-scale emergencies, and its location can be moved if need be.IMG_0847

Mobile Incident Command Vehicle
The Mobile Incident Command Vehicle (MICV), purchased with Homeland Security Funds, is designed for multi-agency use within the incorporated and unincorporated areas of Yuba County. It can act as an on-the-go command post, emergency dispatch center, and secondary Emergency Operations Center, as needed. The vehicle is equipped with state of the art technology, including a satellite system to support Internet, TV, and satellite telephone services.
