Prepare for Natural Disaster

Natural disasters such as tornadoes, floods and blizzards can occur suddenly and unexpectedly. In addition, other emergency events such as infectious disease outbreaks, release of hazardous materials and foreign or domestic terrorism may also occur abruptly and without warning.

The emergency plan that is established by the Corcoran is needed to articulate the management of a given hazard/disaster. The plan describes the basic strategies and mechanisms through which the cities will mobilize resources and conduct activities to guide and support emergency management efforts using the National Incident Management System (NIMS).
