Action Requested
Adoption of Resolution R-14-056 to accept the Manatee County Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) dated December 2013.

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 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.
  • Proposed changes include:
    • Changed the Hazard Vulnerability Analysis (HVA) to the new Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Analysis (THIRA) spreadsheet;
    • Updated the County Organizational chart;
    • Updated demographics according the 2010 census;
    • Updated the Communications Plan to include FEMAs Integrated Alert and Warning System (IPAWS);
    • Updated economic profile including average property values (data submitted by Property Appraisers Office);
    • Clarified Level 2, Partial Activation and agency responsibilities according to THIRA.
  • The plan was last updated and adopted in 2009.
  • Upon Board adoption of the CEMP, Emergency Management will disseminate copies of the plan to all emergency response agencies.
