Our Mission Statement

The County Office of Emergency Services is committed to serving the public before, during and after times of emergency by promoting effective coordination between agencies, and encouraging preparedness of the public and organizations involved in emergency response.

           

 Residents and businesses within the Diablo Canyon Emergency Planning Zone will be receiving a voucher in the mail this month to obtain free Potassium Iodide (KI) from public health. KI protects the thyroid gland against exposure to radioactive iodine in the unlikely event of a radiation release from a nuclear power plant. Participation in the pre-distribution program is voluntary. To learn more about the Public Health KI distribution click here.
