Watch: Shining a Spotlight on Staff – I Am Cal OES Video Series – Guadalupe Martínez, Staff Services Analyst for Fire and Rescue Fleet


Over the past several years, the state has experienced unprecedented 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 Guadalupe Martínez, Staff Services Analyst for the Fire and Rescue Division fleet.

“Even though we’re behind the scenes, we get to be part of all the emergency services, and we prepare our engines to be ready for any emergencies”.

She started working at Cal OES in April 2018, as an Office Technician for the Fire and Rescue Division. Her duties included answering phones, assisting with making copies, and filing and purchasing office supplies. In December 2023, she started working as a Staff Services Analyst for the Fire and Rescue Division fleet.  Her duties there include assisting with all types of repairs and maintenance for any fire agency in California that holds one of the Cal OES engines.

Guadalupe was born in Mexico City, moved to Manhattan Beach, California, and has been living in California for 40 years. Guadalupe earned a Bachelor of Philosophy while in college.
