Emergency Plans

As part of its comprehensive emergency management program, OES maintains a number of emergency plans to ensure that the City is ready to respond to a variety of threats and hazards.

Emergency Operations Plan  An all-hazards response and restoration plan describing the coordination, roles and responsibilities of responding agencies and how the City works with state and federal partners during an emergency. There are two parts to the City's EOP, the Basic Plan, which provides an overview of the City's approach to emergency operations. It details emergency response policies, describes the response organization, and assigns tasks. The second part are the hazard-specific annexes that provide additional operational details for addressing specific functions during a major emergency or disaster.

Hazard Mitigation Plan  Describes the City’s natural and human-made hazards, identifies actions we can take to reduce their effects before a disaster or other catastrophic event, and establishes a process for implementing the plan. Having an approved plan is required for Belmont to be eligible for federal hazard and flood mitigation grant funding, before and after a Presidentially-declared disaster. The plan is made up of two parts, the Base Plan (Vol I), which covers the overall plan and hazards common to all areas of the County and the Jurisdiction-Specific Annex (Vol II), which covers hazards specific to the City of Belmont.
