What is the City doing to prepare for an Emergency?
Emergency Operations Plan (EOP):
The Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) is the ultimate authority for coordinating response and recovery operations in the City of Sanger. Its primary intent is to govern such operations following incidents that require the involvement of multiple City departments, external organizations/jurisdictions, other levels of government, or mutual aid. The EOP identifies the City’s emergency planning, organization, response policies, and procedures. The plan also addresses integration and coordination with other governmental levels when required. The plan is flexible enough to use in all emergencies and will facilitate response and short-term recovery activities. The plan is based on the functions and principles of the Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS), which is based on the FIRESCOPE Incident Command System (ICS) and the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and identifies how the City fits into the overall SEMS/NIMS structure.
