AB 3098 is effective January 1, 2019
We cannot stop natural disasters but we can arm ourselves with knowledge: so many lives wouldn’t have to be lost if there was enough disaster preparedness (Nemcova).
AB 3098 was recently signed by Governor Brown, effective January 1, 2019. This bill requires all RCFEs to have additional elements within the emergency and disaster plan.

This bill requires all RCFEs to have additional elements within the emergency and disaster plan. In addition, this bill requires Community Care Licensing to confirm, during annual visits, that the emergency and disaster plan is on file at the facility, with required content. Violation of these provisions would be a crime.
