What is the City doing to prepare for an emergency?
The City of Rancho Palos Verdes is vulnerable to a host of hazards, including earthquakes, floods, winter storms, landslides/mudslides, hazardous material spills, droughts, civil unrest, terrorism, transportation disasters, and disease pandemics. The City’s Emergency Preparedness program provides for disaster planning and coordination of a comprehensive emergency action plan in the event of a natural or man-made disaster.
The City's Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) is the ultimate authority for coordinating response and recovery operations in the City of Rancho Palos Verdes. Its primary intent is to govern such operations following incidents that require the involvement of multiple City departments, external organizations/jurisdictions, other levels of government, or mutual aid. This EOP identifies the City’s emergency planning, organization, response policies, and procedures.
On November 17, the City Council adopted the 2020 Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan (Plan) for the Cities of Rancho Palos Verdes and Rolling Hills Estates. The Plan identifies hazards and ways to minimize damage caused by natural and human-caused disasters and ensures continued eligibility for Hazard Mitigation Grant Program funding.
