Schuylkill County Emergency Operations Plan
The Schuylkill County Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) outlines how the County Government & Municipal Government comply with and implement the requirement of the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Services Code to protect the lives and property of the citizens of the county. The Schuylkill County Emergency Operations Plan serves as an emergency management link between school districts, local municipalities, and state government while incorporating the federal organizational concepts of the National Response Framework (NRF). This plan is utilized by the County and all 67 municipalities.
Schuylkill County Hazard Mitigation Plan
In response to the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA2000), Schuylkill County adopted their first Hazard Mitigation Plan in 2007. DMA2000 required every state, county and city receiving federal mitigation funding to have a Hazard Mitigation Plan. A key component to reducing future losses is to have a clear understanding of what the current hazards are and what steps or strategies may be employed to lessen them. The 2013 Plan Update identifies eleven natural and technological hazards and over 300 action items from the 67 municipalities in Schuylkill County.
