The City of San Rafael Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) serves as a basis for response to any hazard that threatens the City of San Rafael. It also provides a legal and conceptual framework for emergency management. The EOP provides guidance and direction for those with emergency management responsibilities within the City of San Rafael to successfully respond to the Whole Community, including residents, visitors, businesses, those with access and functional needs (AFN), and traditionally underserved and marginalized communities.
The EOP complies with and is consistent with California’s Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS), the National Incident Management System (NIMS), and the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) standards on EOP organization for a local government entity. It establishes an emergency management organization, addresses the roles and responsibilities of government organizations, and provides a link to federal, state, tribal, and other local government agencies, nonprofit and community-based organizations, and private sector resources that may be activated to address and support disaster and emergency response in the City of San Rafael.
