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.
Emergency Operations Plan (Includes Base Plan, ESFs, Support, Incident Annexes)
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.
To meet our environmental challenges, and to ensure continued effectiveness in the delivery of emergency management services, the emergency management community must share a common vision for the future. To encourage the development of this vision, the OEM staff has updated the OEM Strategic Plan (hereafter referred to as the Plan). This effort provides a road map for calendar years 2018 to 2021. The Plan describes the mission and goals to be achieved over the next three years and the objectives to be attained in pursuit of these goals.
