In partnership, Cal OES works with, coordinates and responds to multiple types of emergency response situations.

​Grants & Funding

​Cal OES’ Grants Management Section is responsible for administering more than $2 billion in funds for homeland security, emergency management, justice programs and victim services, a majority of which are distributed to local and regional entities to enable the most effective prevention, detection, response and recovery efforts.


Cal OES provides training support to the First Responder community within California. The Training Division, while working closely with the California State Training Institute (CSTI) ensures the most comprehensive access to training courses which enhance the capability to accomplish the critical mission areas of Prevent, Protect, Respond, Mitigate and Recover in support of the California statewide training strategy.
