Flagstaff Emergency Operations Plan Development
On March 13, 2023 the City Council approved a Consulting Services Contract with EM Partners.
EM Partners will utilize the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Comprehensive Preparedness Guide (CPG) 101 – Developing and Maintaining Emergency Operations Plans to guide our development of the City of Flagstaff Emergency Operations Plan (EOP). They will ensure the plan aligns with the National Incident Management System (NIMS), the Coconino County EOP, which EM Partners is currently updating, and the Arizona State Emergency Response and Recovery Plan (SERRP), in order to accurately reflect operational relationships between governmental levels. As part of CPG 101, FEMA outlines a six-step planning process which is flexible and adaptable to the specific needs of jurisdictions. Our team will follow this planning process, while applying national standards for planning in our approach, and creating the EOP to be both aligned with these standards and unique to the City of Flagstaff. These steps, 1) Project Scoping and Management, 2) Data Collection and Analysis, and 3) Plan Development will inform our streamlined and systematic approach to supporting the City of Flagstaff EOP development project.
Emergency operations planning is key to managing our risk and response to critical incidents. This plan will detail the roles and responsibilities of the city and stakeholders in emergency response, recovery, and mitigation efforts as they relate to wildfire, post-fire flooding, and other threats and hazards the city may face.
