Training is essential for an effective disaster response. Our fire fighters, police
officers, and EMS are very good at handling emergencies and crisis situations. However,
when disaster strikes on a large scale, extraordinary measures are needed to manage
our resources and deal with situations that are not normally part of our daily functions. This
is where training becomes very important. The Office of Emergency Management works
with the city and county agencies to identify and coordinate appropriate training
The Emergency Operations Plan
The Office of Emergency Management takes an “all hazards” approach to disaster management
which is reflected in our disaster plan. The plan is made up of several components
that include the Basic Plan. It is the job of the Office of Emergency Management to
gather the local experts in these areas to write, regularly review, and when necessary
update the basic plan.
