Besides their regular duties at the Energy Commission, public information officers from the Commission are occasionally "loaned" to and work with the Governor's Office of Emergency Services (OES) during emergencies. PIOs have worked on earthquakes, floods, fires and civil disturbances, augmenting OES's staff in responding to the news media and general public.

Other M&PCO duties include editing and publication of Commission documents and graphical services to Commission divisions and offices.
