If you ever become complacent with your work environment, or a little miffed that some of the changes you’d hoped to see haven’t happened yet, then this story is for you. If you’ve ever traveled to other government buildings, state or otherwise, then you know how bad those facilities can be (one particular office in Auburn stands out in my mind!) One more “if”: if you happened to have worked in the old Cal OES headquarters, like Deputy Director Grace Koch, then you know how wonderful this modern, open and sunlit building is.
Cal OES headquarters has come a long, long way. Just watch this short video and see for yourself, and keep this one in mind while you watch. And consider embracing Grace’s philosophy about her time spent in the old HQ. Enjoy the trip back in time as Grace and public information officer Shawn Boyd flip through a Cal OES photo album.
