(Woodland, CA) – The Yolo County Office of Emergency Services is inviting Yolo County residents to provide input on the Yolo County Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) to contribute to the establishment of an emergency management organization. The Emergency Operations Plan assigns functions and tasks in accordance with California’s Standardized Emergency Management System and the National Incident Management System.

In 2024, the county completed an update to its Emergency Operations Plan. The plan outlines the county’s planned response to extraordinary emergencies and major incidents related to natural, technological, and human-caused emergencies or disasters within or affecting Yolo County. While not designed to cover every possible scenario, the Plan focuses on possible major incidents and provides guidelines for the county’s response. It serves as the primary guide for the county’s response, management, and recovery from real or potential emergencies and disasters within its designated geographic boundaries. The plan details approaches for conducting emergency operations, functional-based emergency planning and response utilizing whole community strategies, inclusion of culturally diverse populations and individuals with disabilities, access and functional needs, and continuity of government during an emergency or disaster.

As part of the Yolo County Emergency Operations Plan update, residents are encouraged to share their input by reviewing the plan online at www.YoloCounty.org/OES, scanning the provided QR code for virtual access, or by requesting a hard copy.

Residents can submit all comments to OES@YoloCounty.org. All comments must be received by the Office of Emergency Services by March 1, 2024.

For further information, feel welcome to contact the Yolo County Office of Emergency Services at (530) 406-4930 or by email OES@YoloCounty.org.
