By CDCR Emergency Planning and Management Unit

As part of Emergency Preparedness month, CDCR participated in the California Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) Open House and Family Day on Sept. 20.

CDCR’s Emergency Planning and Management Unit (EPMU) quickly accepted the invitation to participate. The event allowed CDCR staff to interact with local community members and surrounding businesses, display a fire engine and transport bus.

In addition to EMPU personnel setting up a booth to provide information on CDCR job opportunities, staff also answered community members’ questions about some of the department’s emergency response efforts.

On display was Folsom State Prison’s new fire engine – acquired two weeks ago – and one of Deuel Vocational Institution’s newer inmate transport buses.
