Public Information & Education
Public information and warning is a critical emergency management capability and an inherent local, state, and federal government responsibility.
The OEM PIO convenes and engages the Santa Clara County Operational Area Joint Information System (SCC Op Area JIS) to coordinate information and support community preparedness through public information and education resources.
The SCC Op Area JIS is a network of individuals responsible for supporting emergency public information and warning. Members come together from a broad spectrum of agencies, disciplines, and jurisdictions throughout Santa Clara County to work together to coordinate public information and warning efforts before, during, and after emergencies in the County of Santa Clara.
To request information and or participate in the SCC Op Area JIS, please email [email protected]
The Office of Emergency Management is a member of the Bay Area Joint Information System (JIS).
