Emergency Operations Plan

Tuolumne County EOP Update 2023 

From now until September, Tuolumne County OES will be developing the 2023 Tuolumne County Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) and its Annexes in collaboration with various county stakeholders. 

What is an Emergency Operations Plan?  

An EOP outlines the overarching roles and responsibilities and coordination between various Tuolumne County government agencies (especially first responder agencies), jurisdictional and federal partners, private-sector partners, community groups, and the public, before, during, and after an emergency or disaster situation.  

While emergency response and recovery activities are contingent upon the type and extent of the disaster, the EOP should be flexible and adaptable enough to be used in all scenarios. 

Why do an update? 

The EOP should be updated regularly to ensure it remains relevant and effective in responding to new and evolving hazards. Lessons learned from past events should be integrated into the plan, and it should reflect changes in regulatory requirements, hazards/risks, resources, and preparedness, mitigation, response, and recovery capabilities of the County. The last update was in 2012. 

What is the timeline for completion? 

The EOP will be presented to the Board of Supervisors for final adoption on March 5, 2024.

How was the public involved? 

Per SB 160, a total of three Public Information Meetings were held to provide the public an opportunity to participate in the EOP development. The first two meetings were held prior to draft development to allow for public input before plan writing began. The third meeting provided the public with the opportunity to review and comment on the second draft of the plan, prior to the final draft.
