This publication of the Town of York’s local Emergency Operation Plan represents a concerted effort on the part of town government to provide a comprehensive plan to respond to natural or human caused disasters or emergencies.
The Town of York government and its Emergency Services have the primary duty to save lives, protect property, protect the economic base of the community, and preserve the environment. To accomplish this, we have emergency management programs that mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from the effects of any emergency or disaster.
Emergency Management protects communities by coordinating and integrating all activities necessary to build, sustain, and improve the capability to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to, and recover from threatened or actual natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or other man-made disasters.
Our Emergency Plan is an invaluable resource tool for the various public safety departments to use during an emergency. The Fire and Police departments have standard operating procedures that they employ every day. This plan is intended to augment those, by providing a guideline, and resource list for large scale, or unusual incidents.
