From: CalOES SharedMail_PRA

Mr. Anderson,

The California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services has received your PRA request dated April 8, 2016. The emails you allege to have sent between November 11, 2014 and April 4, 2016 were sent to ohsdutyanalyst@ohs.ca.gov<mailto:ohsdutyanalyst@ohs.ca.gov>. However, that email address ceased to exist in 2009 when the Office of Homeland Security and the Office of Emergency Services merged and became the California Emergency Management Agency. As such, the previous requests were never received by this office.

Someone will respond to your request by April 18, 2016.

Sincerely,

Michelle Church-Reeves
Attorney
Governor’s Office of Emergency Services
