Emergency and Disaster Management

Welcome to the City's Emergency and Disaster Management (EDM) page. This page is relatively new and will be under construction over the next few years as the city increases its capabilities for EDM prevention, mitigation, and response. As a citizen, you play an important role in this effort; be looking to the future for inclusive opportunities in personal preparedness and enhancements to this page that will model a Whole Community approach. 

The City of Valdez is actively building a contemporary EDM program. One component of EDM within the City is to implement and actively revise the new Emergency Operations Plan (EOP). For more information, or to view the EOP, see the Emergency Operations Plan tab at the left. 

The City's EDM office is currently assembling and training the City's Incident Management Team (IMT), implementing incident action planning software, developing the City's new Emergency Operations Center at the Fire Station, organizing mass sheltering, preparing public education, creating MOUs with local stakeholders, and conducting an inventory and acquisition of needed disaster supplies.  Also, the EDM office recently launched new policy and procedure for a small unmanned aircraft system (sUAS) program, servicing several City government departments (see the tab at the left).
