Santa Barbara County officials assisting with emergency aid in New Mexico

The California Governor's Office of Emergency Services has deployed two officials with the Santa Barbara County Office of Emergency Management to New Mexico, to help with recovery efforts following severe storms.

County officials say the two personnel are Certified Emergency Managers. They arrived in Santa Fe on Sunday and will stay for about 21 days.

The deployment was coordinated through the Emergency Management Assistance Compact, an agreement among all 50 states and U.S. territories that allows for neighboring states to provide aid to each other in the case of a major disaster.
