Emergency Operations Plan
The Township has an Emergency Operations Plan [PDF], which outlines how the Township coordinates with other local, county, state and federal agencies in the event of an emergency, ranging from a hazardous material spill to a natural disaster to a terrorist incident.
In the event of a disaster, the overall responsibility for decision making within Tredyffrin Township rests with the Board of Supervisors. The Board of Supervisors may declare a local emergency upon finding a disaster has occured or is imminent.
When a local emergency is declared, Township personnel and representatives from the township emergency first responder organizations may operate an Emergency Operations Center to coordinate the management of community-wide resources (police, public works, fire, EMS, food, shelters, etc.) with various local, county, state and federal agencies to appropriately respond to an emergency event. The protection of health, safety and welfare of our residents is paramount.
The following are examples of EOC staff activities:
- Requesting mutual aid resources
- Locating requested resources and directing them to the proper place
- Managing a wide-scale evacuation
- Establishing shelters and coordinating social services
- Coordinating communications with the community
- Transmitting information over the Emergency Alert System
- Resolving policy issues
