Public Engagement Pillar

Jorge Rodriguez, Director, Deputy Emergency Services Coordinator, County of Sonoma Department of Emergency Management

“Jorge coordinated and executed an evacuation exercise for the rural community of Cazadero in June 2022. This exercise was coordinated with multiple public safety agencies, community groups and organizations, which resulted in a surprising number of residents participating for that area. Through his leadership, the evacuation process was conducted in a safe manner and residents found the event worthwhile.” Read more.
