Emergency Operations Plan

PREVIOUS ACTION: Adoption of Resolution No. 99-54 implementing the Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS) within the City of Brentwood

RECOMMENDED COUNCIL ACTION: Adopt Resolution implementing the City of Brentwood Emergency Operations Plan

COMMENTS: City Manager (Director of Emergency Services) Jon Elam and staff have been working under contract with the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services to compile an extensive emergency operations plan for the City of Brentwood since the fall of 1998. At that time Patricia Pava, Emergency Planning Specialist with the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services, was assigned by the Sheriff’s Department to assist the City in the development of the City’s plan. With most of the work completed, Ms. Pava was reassigned by the Sheriff to other duties. At that time, Eric Imhof, Senior Planning Coordinator with the Sheriff’s Office, was assigned to complete our contract. The Plan before you is a collaboration by the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services and City staff.

The plan development and training started with the adopted Resolution No. 99-54 implementing the Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS) within the City of Brentwood. This was the first step in updating the City of Brentwood Municipal Code Chapter 2.16 Disaster Council and Emergency Services (enacted by City Ord. 272 S10, 1976).

Upon adoption of the Emergency Operations Plan, staff will focus on updating Chapter 2.16 of the Brentwood Municipal Code so that it meets current standards as set forth by State and Federal law. The emergency plan is a "LIVING DOCUMENT" that requires updating on a continuous basis.
