Emergency Operations Center (EOC)
The Emergency Operations Center prepares for emergencies and major disasters such as fires, floods, earthquakes, and acts of terrorism.

Emergency Operations Plan (EOP)
The Emergency Operations Plan establishes a comprehensive, all-hazards approach to managing disasters and emergencies across a spectrum of phases including preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation.
Emergency Preparedness for Residents with Disabilities
Emergencies can occur unexpectedly, and individuals with disabilities related to mobility, hearing, learning, or vision may have unique needs when it comes to responding to such situations. It is important for everyone to be prepared and "Red Cross Ready" by creating an emergency plan, gathering essential supplies in a survival kit, and staying informed. Additionally, both individuals with disabilities and those without, along with their support networks, can benefit from the following tips on managing communication, equipment, service animals, pets, and home safety.
