Emergency Operations Plan  Local Hazard Mitigation Plan

Emergency Operations Plan
The San Marino Emergency Operations Plan addresses the City of San Marino's planned response to extraordinary emergency situations associated with natural disasters, technological incidents, and national security emergencies.  This plan is a preparedness document, designed to be read, understood, and exercised prior to an emergency.  It further describes the role of the City of San Marino as part of the California Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS) and the National Incident Management System (NIMS).

The City of San Marino Emergency Operation Plan was adopted by the San Marino City Council on October 11, 2017 and was written in accordance with the guidelines set forth under the State of California's Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS), the Governor's Executive Order S-2-05 regarding the integration of the National Incident Management System (NIMS), and FEMA's Comprehensive Preparedness Guide (CPG) 101 Version 2.0 dated November 2010.

Local Hazard Mitigation Plan
In February 2019, the City of San Marino City Council approved and adopted the City's Local Hazard Mitigation Plan.  The plan includes resources and information to assist San Marino residents, public and private sector organizations, and others interested in participating in planning for natural and manmade hazards.  The LHMP provides a list of activities that may assist in reducing risk and preventing loss from future disastrous events.  The action items address multi-hazard issues, as well as specific activities for earthquakes, floods, wind storms, landslides, wildfires, and manmade hazards.

The primary objective of the mitigation plan is to reduce the negative impacts of future disasters on San Marino: to save lives and reduce injuries, minimize damage to buildings and infrastructure (especially critical facilities) and minimize economic losses.

This mitigation plan meets FEMA's planning requirements for addressing hazards, vulnerability and risk.  Adoption of this mitigation plan is required for San Marino to remain eligible for future FEMA mitigation grant funds and reimbursement of disaster related expenses.
