Charter Signing Ceremony, September 2016

In September 2016, partner agencies and organizations signed the California Silver Jackets Team charter, which describes the mission, goals, and responsibilities of the team. hich

The California Silver Jackets team brings together federal, state, regional, and local agencies to focus on the State's priorities for flood risk management.  The program is designed to improve coordination, collaboration, and communication among disaster-response agencies at all levels of government before a disaster strikes in an effort to accelerate recovery afterwards. The program is led by the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) and empowered and supported by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). California became the 40th state to join the Silver Jackets disaster coordination program in November 2013.  A formal team charter was signed in September 2016.
