The Island County Department of Emergency Management is in the process of revising the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP). Many of the Emergency Support Functions and Annexes remain accurate with minimal updates. The following documents are drafts of the 2017 CEMP currently being reviewed.
It is the policy of Island County, Washington to provide the emergency organization and resources necessary to minimize the effects of incidents; prepare to respond to disaster situations; maximize population survival; preserve property, and enhance recovery to ensure the orderly and expeditious return to normal community life in the County in the event of a disaster.
In an effort to fulfill this policy, Island County has prepared this Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP), which sets forth the general policies and procedures for Island County departments and divisions to define activities to be undertaken in an effort to minimize the disruption to the County. This document describes the measures necessary for emergency response activities after a disaster or incident by defining the roles of departments and divisions.
This plan complies with existing federal, state and local statutes and is consistent with the capabilities and resources of the various departments and divisions involved. All departments and divisions assuming responsibility under this plan have developed and shall continue to improve upon detailed procedures necessary to carry out their respective responsibilities. In addition, this plan shall be revised and updated, and related training and exercise programs undertaken, as indicated herein.
CEMP BASIC DOCUMENT
EMERGENCY SUPPORT FUNCTION 1 TRANSPORTATION
EMERGENCY SUPPORT FUNCTION 2 COMMUNICATION, INFORMATION SYSTEMS, AND WARNING
EMERGENCY SUPPORT FUNCTION 6 MASS CARE, EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE, HOUSING, AND HUMAN SERVICES
EMERGENCY SUPPORT FUNCTION 8 PUBLIC HEALTH, MEDICAL, MORTUARY SERVICES
EMERGENCY SUPPORT FUNCTION 10 HAZARDOUS MATERIALS
EMERGENCY SUPPORT FUNCTION 11 AGRICULTURE AND NATURAL RESOURCES
The Island County CEMP is based on the State of Washington CEMP in format and content. Both documents were aligned with the National Response Plan (NRP). In January 2008 the National Response Framework core document (NRF) was published as the replacement for the NRP.
The NRF brings structural changes to the layout of the CEMP. There have been three changes and up-dates issued for the CEMP and with the size and complexity of the NRF changes, it became more practical to revise the entire CEMP rather than issue an additional change.
The revision as Edition 2 is planned to be submitted for BOICC adoption in December 2009..
