Reports and Publications


In 2013 the Yolo County Office of Emergency Services began revision of many emergency management plans and systems to enhance the preparedness and response capability of the County.  This project encompasses partners throughout the entire County over a multi-year strategy.  The final product will be a set of emergency plans which outline responsibilities and provide guidance to local responders.  The FEMA recommended structure we are following for the creation of our plans can be viewed by clicking on this link.  Please check back as we progress to read the plans which are created.
