This Emergency Operations Plan was adopted by the Cordova City Council in May of 2010 and updated in November of 2011. Numerous members of the Cordova EMO (Emergency Managment Organization) , a group consisting of over 30 local agencies/businesses provided input to each and every part of the plan.
The document consists of the EOP Basic Plan as well as numerous EOP Annexes (each dedicated to a specific function or potential disaster). The Reference section includes the call-out Roster, Cordova's Hazard Analysis, local Memoranda of Understanding, and other general reference materials.
How can you potentially save a life? Be prepared to "shelter in place" during an emergency.
