Sacramento – California’s capital city, historic center of the Gold Rush and the center of state government. This vibrant metropolis is known by a number of different nicknames: “Camellia Capital” for the city flower found so abundantly in Sacramento neighborhoods; “City of Trees” due to the countless miles of tree-lined streets and wooded parks in the region; “River City” by virtue of two major rivers (Sacramento and American) that converge near historic Old Sacramento; and “Farm to Fork Capital” for the abundance of fresh food grown and raised nearby. Clearly, Sacramento is much more than just the “Capital City.” Cal OES is charged with protecting the State from all hazards and threats, whether natural or man-made. Cal OES is both the State’s emergency management agency and it is also the State’s Homeland Security Department.
