Contact and/or Presenter Information
Don Hermey, Chief, Emergency Management

Action Requested

Adoption of  Resolution R-16-004 amending the Manatee County Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) to incorporate the Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) dated December 2015.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
  • Florida Administrative Code 27P-6.006
  • Florida Statute 252.35(2)(d)

Background Discussion
  • Florida Statute 252 requires updating of the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) to be revised every four years.
  • The plan, with its associated annexes, provides guidance and policy for response and recovery of emergency services elements to any man-made or natural disaster impacting Manatee County.
  • The Florida Division of Emergency Management determines if each section of the plan meets compliance. Emergency Management has been notified that our plan addresses all required program changes and addresses all National Incident Management Systems criteria.
  • The plan was last updated and adopted in 2014.
  • Upon Board approval to amend the CEMP, Emergency Management will disseminate copies of the plan to all emergency response agencies, if necessary.
