The San Diego County Office of Emergency Services is asking county residents to provide feedback on two emergency plans. Feedback from the survey will be incorporated into the operational area’s emergency operations plan and multi-jurisdictional risk mitigation plan.

These plans cover risks such as earthquakes, floods, fires, tsunamis and even terrorist attacks. One of the plans also identifies risks and targets for minimizing the impacts of natural and man-made disasters. Both plans were last revised in 2018 and are currently being revised to reflect changes in current operations and capabilities.

The survey is available in six languages, English, Spanish, Tagalog, Chinese (simplified and traditional), Arabic and Vietnamese.

The comments will be added to the Office of Emergency Services’ two plans to coordinate response to major emergencies and disasters. The goal is to further protect residents, their property and the environment.

Survey feedback must be provided by May 1. Residents who choose to include their email address in the survey will be invited to participate in a virtual forum on Monday, May 23. In the forum, the Office of Emergency Services will review the survey results and offer residents a chance to provide additional feedback on the plans.
