In The News This Week

This week in industry news, Government Technology reports that the Sonoma County (CA) Board of Supervisors signed off on an internal audit of the county's response to the deadly October wildfires in order to better prepare them to respond to future disasters. Key Highlights:

  • The board agreed to move forward with a restructuring of the emergency services division that begins with funding new jobs for people who will focus specifically on the development of a new community warning program
  • The board acknowledged that the public's expectations for emergency alerts have grown significantly with technological advancements in recent years
  • Sonoma County can serve a leadership role by developing a warning program that more closely matches public expectations for what information the government will provide in times of crisis

We reported on this story a few months ago when the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services published a report from an independent assessment of Sonoma County's disaster communication plan failure. You can read our breakdown of that report here.
