City of Dana Point Emergency Plan
The City of Dana Point Emergency Plan provides the framework for responding to major

  • Identifies potential hazards that form the basis for the emergency plan
  • Identifies authorities and assigns responsibilities to the appropriate agencies
  • Identifies other jurisdictions and organizations with which planning and emergency response activities are coordinated
  • Establishes an organizational structure to manage the emergency response
  • Outlines preplanned response actions to be taken by emergency personnel to mitigate the
    effects of a disaster
  • Outlines a process of disseminating emergency information and instructions to the public
  • Describes the resources available to support emergency response activities
  • Establishes responsibilities for maintaining the overall City emergency preparedness program
  • Provides the basis for initial training and subsequent retraining of emergency workers.
