SB 160: Emergency Services: Cultural Competence (2019 - 2020)

Summary: 

Current law defines the terms “political subdivision” and “emergency plans” for purposes of
emergency services provided by local governments. Current law requires a county, upon the next
update to its emergency plan, to integrate access and functional needs into its emergency plan, as
specified. This bill would require a county to integrate cultural competence, as defined, into its
emergency plan, upon the next update to its emergency plan, as specified. By increasing the duties of
local officials, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
