FEMA Region IX
The Federal Emergency Management Agency supports citizens and first responders to ensure that as a Nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards. FEMA Region IX, headquartered in Oakland, California, is one of ten Regional Offices. The people of the Federal Emergency Management Agency serve the United States by providing help to people impacted by disasters, working with state, local and tribal governments. On call 24/7, FEMA's public servants are experts in the various fields of emergency management. FEMA Region IX supports the development of a regional, all-hazards, risk-based emergency management system of preparedness, prevention, protection, response, recovery, and mitigation through close working relationships that draw on the talents and assets of federal agencies, state, tribal nations, localities, business and industry, and state and local volunteer organizations and faith-based groups.
