All City of San Ramon regular employees are, by law, Disaster Service Workers. The roles and responsibilities for Disaster Service Workers are authorized by the California Emergency Services Act and are defined in the California Labor Code. If the City of San Ramon declares a "Local Emergency" during normal work hours, employees will be expected to remain at work to respond to the emergency needs of this community. If a "Local Emergency" is declared outside of normal work hours, employees may be called back to work, either in San Ramon or in their home communities.
In order for us to be effective Disaster Service Workers, it is important to be assured that our family members are safe and secure. The best way to have this assurance is to be prepared for a possible emergency by having personal/family emergency plans. Accordingly, it is strongly recommended that employees take the steps to prepare themselves and their families.
