Two Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency staff members are in California assisting emergency management response teams after recent storms brought flooding and damage to many parts of the state. 

The staff members will report to the Sacramento area for a two-week deployment.

During that time, they will accompany Public Assistance program staff on damage assessments to identify hazards, and provide technical assistance to communities on grant opportunities to help lessen the impact of future disasters. 

The request for assistance was made via the Emergency Management Assistance Compact.
