Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger this afternoon appointed Alameda County Sheriff Gregory Ahern to the California Emergency Council.

Ahern, 50, a Republican from Livermore, has been sheriff since last year, and has worked for the sheriff’s office for 28 years including stints running the county’s jails and various patrol and investigation duties. The council meets at least once a year to advise the governor on emergency preparedness issues, and is convened to advise the governor during actual emergencies. This position doesn’t require state Senate confirmation and doesn’t come with a salary.
