What priorities do you want the City to focus on in their updated Emergency Management Plan?
In an effort to continuously improve the City of San Luis Obispo's ability to serve the public during large disasters the Fire Department is updating the City’s Emergency Management Plan (EMP). The EMP is a comprehensive all-hazards document that City Staff, public safety and public service personnel can utilize as a guide while providing critical services during an emergency. The current version was adopted by the City Council on June 7, 2011 and has several annex plans. The City has determined that this plan is ready for a comprehensive review and update and is reaching out to the public to help guide the types of disasters the City should include as specific annexes to the plan. While the current plan helps guide staff to manage a broad range of emergencies, it singles out earthquake, nuclear power plant, hazardous materials, storm/flood, wildland fire and multi-casualty incidents.
Thank you for taking the time to help prepare the City for the next large-scale disaster.
