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.
Meet Rashad Mosley, IT Specialist at Cal OES. The work he does supports the State Operations Center to ensure that emergency managers have reliable and secure communications and computer systems to perform the critical work needed to help keep Californians safe.
“It is paramount that I understand what people need, so that I can help them know what’s available to them, and what can solve their problem or fulfill their needs. There is nothing like the feeling of knowing people can do their jobs without noticing the systems that make it possible,” Mosley said.
