The Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services (OES) provides emergency management services for the County/Operational Area including its eleven cities/towns and 300+ special districts. OES coordinates emergency operations activities among all the various local jurisdictions and develops written guidelines for emergency preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation to natural / man-made disasters, and technological disasters. The Sheriff’s OES is mandated by the California Emergency Services Act (Chapter 7, Division 1, Title 2 of Government Code) to serve as the liaison between the State and all the local government political subdivisions comprising Marin County.
The Office of Emergency Services establishes the Marin County / Operational Area Emergency Operations Center (EOC) when directed by County emergency management authority. An EOC is a location from which centralized emergency management can be performed during a major emergency or disaster. This center facilitates a coordinated response by the Director of Emergency Services, Emergency Management Staff and representatives from organizations that are assigned emergency management responsibilities. The level of EOC staffing will vary depending upon the specific emergency situation.
