BACKGROUND:

The Homeland Security Division and Office of Emergency Services (HSD/OES) serves a population of over 700,000 residents. The HSD/OES division coordinates activities to mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters and offers effective planning, training, and coordination to continually develop the mitigation, preparedness, and response and recovery capabilities for emergencies resulting from all hazards.

To meet the expectations of a safer County through effective partnerships, the Police and Fire Chiefs Associations requested a full-time Fire Battalion Chief be assigned to the Homeland Security Division.

 

DISCUSSION:

The department assigned Fire Battalion Chief will assist in planning, developing, implementing, and administering Countywide policies and programs related to emergency management and serve as a liaison to San Mateo County Fire Chiefs. The Battalion Chief will remain an employee of the participating fire department assigned to OES. Both the Fire Chiefs and Police Chiefs Associations are in full support of this partnership to enhance HSD/OES and ultimately the communities served.

 

The resolution and agreement have been reviewed and approved as to form by County Counsel.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

The agreement with San Mateo Consolidated Fire Department is for the term of July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021, in an amount not to exceed $327,280. This agreement is funded through a combination of the Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG), the OES-JPA member agencies, and the County. The Net County Cost is $106,140. Funding for this agreement has been included in the Sheriff’s Office FY 2020-21 Recommended Budget.
