County OES
Background:This guide was developed with the cooperation of California Emergency Management Agency (Cal EMA) Individual Assistance Section with input from our local partners. It is provided as a reference to assist in the development of one or more resource center facilities known as Local Assistance Centers (LACs). This guide may be used as a tool for decision makers when establishing a LAC and may be incorporated into disaster recovery planning activities such as exercises, drills, and training.

Local Assistance Centers have proven to significantly contribute to a streamlined recovery process and have been field-tested in numerous disasters and emergency events.

Below are the Local Assistance Center Guidelines to implement into your recovery plans. Also, position checklists and training materials are available to help learn about the positions and functions of people working at Local Assistance Centers.
