Emergency Operations Plan
One of the primary responsibilities of the City Manager’s Office and the City Disaster Council is to develop a City EOP. This Plan addresses, to the greatest extent possible, the emergency response functions of City departments, supporting agencies, public officials, and other public and private organizations during emergencies and disasters. The City Council approved the EOP on December 8, 2015.
Local Hazard Mitigation Plan
"Mitigation" means doing or changing things to lessen or eliminate the impact of an emergency or disaster, such as a flood or earthquake. The Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA 2000) requires state and local governments to prepare mitigation plans to document their hazard mitigation planning process, and to identify hazards, potential losses, mitigation needs, goals, and strategies. Under DMA 2000, each state and local government must have a federally approved mitigation plan to be eligible for hazard mitigation grant funding.
This is the first mitigation plan prepared for Buena Park. It's been reviewed and approved by the state's Office of Emergency Services and by FEMA, and adopted by the City Council. It's also available for you to read and, if you choose, comment on aspects of the Plan that you like or dislike. Please send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
