Municipalities Must Update Emergency Plans

Potter County Emergency Management Coordinator Jim Steiner has issued the following notice to township and borough officials, reminding them of the importance of completing a Municipal Emergency Operations Plan:

An audit with PEMA Central Area Office has found that there are several municipalities that have not completed the new Municipal Emergency Operations Plan Template, which was distributed to all municipalities by this office in August 2007.

As the time approaches for the annual review and update of your Emergency Operations Plan, please review the current Emergency Operations Plan you have on file to verify it is the current version, and to verify the promulgation page is completed and signed.

All municipalities must have a completed Emergency Operations Plan and a signed and dated promulgation page on file with this office by no later than Feb. 20. Should you have any questions, please contact Kathy Brooks or myself at 274-8900.
