Listos California Emergency Preparedness Campaign
In 2019, California Governor Gavin Newsom and the State Legislature appropriated $50 million to fund the California For All Emergency Preparedness Campaign, a disaster-preparedness initiative housed at the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES). This campaign, dubbed Listos California, is a statewide effort to boost disaster preparedness by engaging over one million of the most vulnerable Californians and connecting them with culturally and linguistically competent support through a grass-roots, people-centered approach.
Valley Vision supports the Listos California Campaign by bolstering local capacity and statewide disaster preparedness by providing regional governments and community based organizations with supports needed to directly engage their residents and prepare their communities for a disaster. In its role, Valley Vision oversees the selection and management of vendors, contractors, and other experts needed to develop the tools, assets and outreach supports needed to engage at least one million diverse and vulnerable Californian’s with appropriate emergency preparedness messages and content. Additionally, Valley Vision aids in the coordination of dozens of community based organizations across the state that are responsible for the direct engagement of residents.
