Lessons Learned from 2017 Disasters, Yuba-Sutter Officials Reflect on the Recent Past

(TNS) — Between the Oroville Dam emergency spillway and wildfires, the past year was a learning opportunity for area emergency services officials.

Though emergency response plans have long been in place, 2017 presented lessons in public trust, public notification, emergency center organization and preparedness.

Officials submitted reflections on what their entities have learned about emergency response and how Yuba-Sutter is better prepared for the future.

Smith traveled to Emmitsburg, Maryland Feb. 21 and 22 on behalf of Sutter County to participate in the 25th annual National Dam Safety Program Technical Seminar, at the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s National Emergency Training Center.
