Emergency Operations Plan
Virginia and Fairfax County are continually threatened by emergency and disaster situations such as flash flooding, hurricanes, hazardous materials incidents and other incidents that may cause shortages of resources.
The Fairfax County Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) is a multi-discipline, all-hazards plan that establishes a single, comprehensive framework for the management of major emergencies and disasters within the county. The EOP is implemented when it becomes necessary to mobilize identified resources in order to save lives and protect property and infrastructure. The EOP establishes the overall roles and responsibilities for emergency operations, as well as the concept of operations for the county. It is used in conjunction with established operational procedures, plans and protocols. The development and maintenance of this plan and supporting plans is the basis of the local emergency management program.
The 2015 Fairfax County Emergency Operations Plan was approved by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors on June 23, 2015 and fulfills the Commonwealth of Virginia’s requirement for each city and county to prepare and maintain an EOP to respond to disasters or large-scale emergencies.
