Emergency Operations Plan

The Emergency Operations Plan (EOP), adopted by Resolution 10-77 on December 14, 2010, establishes guidance for the City's actions during response to, and short term recovery from, major emergencies and disasters. The EOP describes the roles and responsibilities of City departments and personnel when an incident occurs, and it establishes a strategy and operating guidelines that support the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the principles of the Incident Command System (ICS). The EOP consists of what is called the Basic Plan that goes through each of these roles and is supported by 15 separate Emergency Support Functions (ESFs) which are very specific in their focus.
