Shining a Spotlight on Staff – I am Cal OES Video Series – Sherryl Jones


Over the past several years, the state has experienced an unprecedented number of emergencies and disasters. As these climate-driven natural disasters become more severe in California, the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) staff has met each new challenge head-on.

The nearly 2,000 staff at Cal OES have responded to increasingly complex disasters in fresh and innovative ways, strengthening the foundation of emergency management to prepare for, respond to and recover from all types of emergencies and disasters.

This week, Cal OES welcomes you to learn more about Sherryl Jones, Senior Emergency Services Coordinator with Response Operations Southern Region. Sherryl is assigned to Los Angeles County, which is one of the 11 counties that make up the Southern Region.

“I’m proud to live in the community that I serve. Having relationships with the leaders that serve my community is important and I’m able to be their conduit to state and federal government,” Jones said.

Sherryl works with local and county government in Los Angeles County to help communities prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies. Sherryl joined Cal OES in February 2008, previously working with the California Conservation Corps.
