Prepositioned Resources Remain in San Diego County as State Sees Lingering Storm Impacts


With lingering storm impacts following a powerful atmospheric river system, the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) is taking proactive steps to keep people safe and has strategically prepositioned fire engines and personnel in San Diego County to be able to respond if needed. 

The prepositioned fire resources include:

San Diego County:

  • 3 Local Government IMT Members
  • 3 OES Engines, Type 1
  • 2 OES Engines, Type 3
  • 1 Local Government Dispatcher

The Cal OES Fire and Rescue Branch facilitates the California Fire and Rescue Mutual Aid System, which includes moving more than 270 fire engines from 60 local government resources across the state in support of all-risk emergency response on behalf of local, state and federal government fire organizations.

Cal OES assigns local government fire agencies with fire apparatus to maintain surge capacity during day-to-day duties and major emergencies.
