Specialized Training Prepares First Responders for Mass Casualty Incidents


As part of continued efforts to provide valuable training to local governments so they can respond during times of need, the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) facilitates training for first responders who are deployed through the state’s mutual aid system.

This training includes conducting full-scale exercises with law personnel to simulate different emergencies, such as one involving multiple casualties.

Recently, Cal OES partnered with Butte County Sheriff’s Office on how to process a scene and provide resources to loved ones.

By providing state resources, Cal OES can help communities recover after any major incident and help provide families with closure and support.
