LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1488, as introduced, Cervantes. Emergency services: local government.
Existing law, the California Emergency Services Act, among other things, establishes the Office of Emergency Services and sets forth its powers and duties relating to mitigating the effects of natural, manmade, or war-caused emergencies and makes findings and declarations relating to ensuring that preparation within the state will be adequate to deal with those emergencies.
This bill would declare the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation that would address the report published in December 2019 by the California State Auditor’s office titled, “California Is Not Adequately Prepared to Protect Its Most Vulnerable Residents from Natural Disasters” and emphasizes the need to ensure that counties have up-to-date plans for key emergency functions to effectively manage response operations.
