PAGE2 <br />MAYOR AND TOWN COUNCIL <br />SUBJECT: ADOPT RESOLUTION APPROVING REVISIONS TO THE TOWN OF LOS GATOS <br />EMERGENCY OPERATIONS PLAN <br />January 20, 2010 <br />• The EOC roster (page 32-33 of the EOP) was revised to reflect changes in Town staff and re- <br />allocation based on practicality and opportunities to assign new talent and experience to <br />appropriate positions in the EOC. <br />• The EOC position checklists were reviewed and revised to reflect practical applications, reduce <br />redundancies and increase the use of consistent language as appropriate. <br />• Appendices O and P regarding wildfire and dam failure were added. Resident outreach and <br />education will occur through the Town website, neighborhood meetings and other methods <br />deemed appropriate by staff. The evacuation route maps will be available in hard copy in the <br />Clerk's Office. <br />CONCLUSION: <br />The Police Department is primarily responsible for maintaining and updating the EOP and may <br />periodically provide Council with updates as appropriate. <br />RECOMMENDATION: <br />Staff recommends that the Town Council approve the revised Emergency Operations Plan. <br />ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT: <br />This is not a project defined under CEQA, and no further action is required. <br />FISCAL IMPACT: <br />There is no anticipated fiscal impact. Future revisions of the EOP and Appendices, in addition to staff <br />training will be conducted as part of the regular duties of the Support Services Captain and Personnel <br />and Community Services Sergeant in the Police Department. Failure to comply with the Emergency <br />Operations Plan as it relates to Incident Command System standards could affect the Town's ability to <br />obtain future disaster relief funding in the event of a natural disaster. <br />Attachments: <br />Emergency Operations Plan Sections I and II (Appendices) <br />Distribution: <br />General <br />
