Office of Emergency Services
The Solano County Office of Emergency Services is dedicated to the development, establishment and maintenance of programs and procedures which will provide for the protection of lives and property of Solano County residents from the effects of natural or man-made disasters. Natural or man-made disasters to which the county is subject and for which the office must train and properly respond include floods, earthquakes, major fires, storms, radiological or hazardous material incidents, aircraft accidents, mass casualty incidents and any emergency related function that supports the Sheriff’s Office..
Philosophy: "Be prepared to effectively manage any major emergency or disaster situation that may occur within the Solano County Operational Area"
The Solano County Office of Emergency Services was pleased to co-host SAREX 2014 along with Napa County, Lake County Sheriff’s Offices and the California Office of Emergency Services. OES employee Kevin Ives was the Incident Commander for this annual Search and Rescue training event that was held at Skyline Wilderness Park in Napa.
Solano County Search and Rescue Volunteers Tom Myers, Robert Mangosing and Mike Heil supported this event by taking on various assignments. This event brought together Search and Rescue volunteers from around the State for both classroom and field training.
