Emergency Operations Plan
The purpose of the plan is to identify the roles, responsibilities, and actions required of participating agencies, city departments, and city enterprises in preparing for and responding to emergencies.
Hazard Mitigation Plan
Hazard mitigation is defined by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as “any sustained action taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to human life and property from a hazard event.” Mitigation creates safer communities by reducing loss of life and property damage. Hazard mitigation planning is the process through which hazards that threaten communities are identified and profiled, likely impacts of those hazards are assessed, and mitigation strategies to lessen those impacts are identified, prioritized, and implemented. The results of a three-year, congressionally mandated independent study to assess future savings from mitigation activities provide evidence that mitigation activities are highly cost-effective.
