Shasta County's Response to Local Emergencies

Emergency Job Matching

Shasta County is actively responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. The situation remains fluid as we navigate through the ever-changing landscape.

Staffing is critical as we respond to the COVID-19 emergency. In order to staff the COVID-19 response, current employees may be temporarily reassigned to positions to support the ongoing response efforts. Additionally, public sector partner agencies and volunteers may be utilized to support the ongoing response efforts.

Shasta County Support Services staff review all forms submitted on this site from public sector employees and volunteers who can be temporarily assigned to a position in support of ongoing response efforts. Any such assignments would be temporary and based on the needs of the County for essential work during the COVID-19 emergency. Positions may include assisting with the call center, emergency shelter operations, supporting recovery efforts, medical, managing information through a variety of mediums, and more. The information provided may also be used for future emergencies should the need arise.

County Employees

County employees are designated Disaster Service Workers. This means that during a declared emergency like the present COVID-19 pandemic, all County employees are required by law to be at the disposal of the Director of Emergency Services to respond to the emergency. This is true whether an employee is teleworking, working on-site – including at the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) or at another job site or department that is not the employee's normal worksite – or not working for other reasons.

County employees are asked to complete the form below if they have not already done so.

Short-Term Job Vacancies

Shasta County is currently accepting applications to fill temporary short-term vacancies for multiple locations within the County in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These positions are classified as Extra-Help Appointments, which is defined as an appointment made to a non-regular, non-permanent position(s) established on a temporary basis to meet peak loads, unusual work situations, seasonal and recurrent work, intermittent assignments, or emergencies.

All County employees are designated Disaster Service Workers through state and local law (California Government Code Section 3100-3109). Employment with the County requires the affirmation of a loyalty oath to this effect.
