Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan
The City of Bellevue Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan is a comprehensive approach to the content and organization of all emergency management documents for the city's Emergency Management Program. The CEMP describes the basic strategies, assumptions, operational objectives and mechanisms through which Emergency Management Program will mobilize resources and conduct activities to guide and support local emergency management efforts through preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation.
The CEMP consists of two parts: the base plan and the annexes.
The Emergency Operations Center
The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) serves as a centralized location for emergency operations. Activited at the request of the City Manager, Emergency Preparedness Manager or any city department director, the center will coordinate and support the community response to a disaster and coordinate efforts with county, state and federal agencies.
Designated staff report to the EOC to coordinate response efforts and support field operations. All or part of the Emergency Management organization and/or the EOC may be activated during a disaster.
The level of activation will be determined by the nature and extent of the disaster. The EOC can be operational 24 hours a day and is equipped with alternate power supplies for use during a general system failure.
