The Chapters of CESA follow the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services Administrative Regions. Each member is assigned a Chapter at the time of membership registration, typically based off their address or their area of responsibilities.
Each Chapter offers leadership development opportunities through committee and board positions.
CESA welcomes everyone who is passionate about emergency management in California. Whether someone calls it Emergency Management, Business Continuity, or Disaster Preparedness, we all are in the business of preparing for, responding to, recovering from, and mitigating everything from planned events to disasters. CESA is a place for you to gain that knowledge and share your experience.
