Important Updates from the Emergency Preparedness Committee


In the face of unpredictable challenges, from looming threat of wildfires, devastating floods to the ever-present risk of earthquakes, it’s crucial for building department staff to remain steadfastly prepared to safeguard our local communities during emergencies. 

The CALBO Emergency Preparedness Committee is reaching out to remind you to allocate sometime in the coming weeks to review and update your department’s Emergency Operations Guides and/or Procedures. Ensure that these documents accurately reflect recent changes in personnel, including contact information, roles, and facility details. A well-prepared team is the backbone of successful emergency response. 


CalOES SAP is transitioning their database and credentialing system to a new platform that will propel SAP into the digital space of data and credentialing management. It’s anticipated that the transition will be complete no later than end of March 2024. During this transition, physical badge creation has been halted. Individuals are able to complete their online refresher SAP course and attend instructor led trainings, but a certificate of completion will be sent in lieu of a badge until the new online system is live and SAP badges will be available digitally within individual platform accounts. Stay tuned for more updates!
