County of Alpine CA- the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) has been working around the clock coordinating resources to various areas of the county during the storm event and the threatened existence of the upcoming storm.
As a proactive measure on January 9th the Sheriff, as Director of Emergency Services, filed a Resolution Declaring a State of Emergency in Alpine County and on January 13th the Board of Supervisors ratified the local emergency and the continuance until termination.
County Officials and Staff have worked to prioritize, manage and facilitate assets during these emergency situations through-out all of Alpine County. The EOC has dealt with a wide variety of events ranging from flood emergencies, avalanche, mutual aid calls, fire, search and rescue and other related issues.
County Staff and Volunteers have been working tirelessly to respond to each of these events along with the clean-up and damage repair caused by rain and snow.
The National Weather Service is predicting another storm to impact Alpine County but at this time it is expected to be a milder Atmospheric River with colder temperatures.
We are continuing to monitor the storm situation as we progress through- out the week.
