City's Response

Definition & Types of Emergencies


Accidents and emergency incidents occur frequently, but rarely with the scope and complexity that would require activation of the City’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) or implementation of the Emergency Response and Recovery Plan (ERRP). To better define the relationships between incident size and complexity, EOC activation, and implementation of the City’s ERRP, the City has categorized the types of emergencies and the possible levels of response.
