The purpose of ESF 5 is to identify the internal and external departments responsible for coordinating the emergency management actions that may take place in an emergency.
If ESF 5 requires activation, the EOC Director will contact the appropriate resources to activate the EOC. The district emergency notification system may be utilized for the notification and recall of groups needed for the function of the ESF. National Incident Management System concepts will be used for all incidents. Incident or Unified Command will be used by responding departments and agencies. When requested, ESF personnel will report to the EOC and utilize the EOP, its annexes and other SOPs to activate and operate during an incident or event. The Associate Director of Emergency Management, as the district's Emergency Management Coordinator, will operate during an emergency as the EOC Manager.
