Most of the time people do not think about Emergency Management. However, when a crisis occurs it is essential to have not only a personal plan in place, but community planning as well.
The City has adopted a Local Emergency Operations Plan or LEOP for governmental services during an emergency. The plan is available for review at the City Offices or County Offices.
Although there is a plan in place for governmental assistance, all persons should be aware of their own personal emergency plan. This includes having a Emergency Food and Water Supply, a Family Disaster Plan, Pets & Animals In A Disaster, etc.
