Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan
A Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) has been prepared to provide guidance in response to major disasters throughout the County. The plan has the following sections which specifically address different portions of the response:
- Basic Plan Sections
- Response Functions - Emergency Support Functions (ESFs)
- Continuity of Operations (COOP)
The Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan and all sections are reviewed and updated annually. To view the entire (388 page) plan see the Documents section on this page.
Subject to the requirement of Superfund Amendments Reauthorization Act (SARA), Title III, Section 303(c)(3) the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) has designated the Emergency Manager as the coordinator of information for all records and documents submitted by owner/operators of facilities subject to the emergency planning and notification requirements of the Emergency Planning & Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA).
Wisconsin Emergency Management has developed internet access to selected information from theEmergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA)database.
Resources for family emergency planning are available through American Red Cross (ARC) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
Create your own Emergency Preparedness Checklist.
Making a list of items you will need, before disaster strikes, should be part of your emergency plan. At a minimum you will need:
- Car and house keys
- Checkbook - cash - credit card
- Baby and Special needs items
*Pets will not be allowed in mass shelter facilities (except for service animals) so it is up to you to make prior arrangements for sheltering your pets. Your veterinarian, kennel or animal hospital may be able to help you with your plan.
Each individual or family is encouraged to develop an emergency plan and evacuation kit which should include the above plus supplies for each family member for three days. For further information on planning for emergencies contact your local American Red Cross, Humane Society or Emergency Management Office.
