DGS executives met today to review and test emergency plans and procedures that would be put into place in response to a flood.
The tabletop exercise held at DGS headquarters, located along the Sacramento River in West Sacramento, was designed to ensure that the department’s core business functions including contracting and real estate services will continue in the event of a natural disaster such as flooding.
Weather predictions indicate that large storms may come in the coming weeks due to warming in the Pacific Ocean known as El Niño.
Even as California’s historic drought remains severe, and residents must continue to conserve water, the state must also prepare for the possibility of flooding and other disasters due to predicted storms.
