The Emergency Management Division is responsible for the operation of the City’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC). The EOC is the focal point for coordination of the City’s emergency planning, training, response, and recovery efforts for emergencies and major disasters.
Emergency Operations Center (EOC)
The Emergency Operations Center prepares for emergencies and major disasters such as fires, floods, earthquakes, and acts of terrorism. The EOC also prepares for major planned events in the city that require involvement by multiple city departments and integration with outside agencies, such as schools, special districts, other cities, the county, state, and federal agencies, as well as the private sector.
Emergency Operations Plan (EOP)
The Emergency Operations Plan establishes a comprehensive, all-hazards approach to managing disasters and emergencies across a spectrum of phases including preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation.
Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan
The City of Moorpark is working to adopt an updated Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan in partnership with the County of Ventura and our neighboring cities within the County. The Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan contains two volumes; Volume 1 addresses regional issues, while Volume two contains annexes that consider hazards and impacts specific to each city and special district in the County. The 2022 MHMP was adopted by the Ventura County Board of Supervisors on July 12, 2022, received City of Moorpark Planning Commission approval on September 27, 2022, and will be considered by Moorpark City Council at their regular meeting on October 5, 2022.
The City is involved in outreach, education, and community emergency preparedness activities, including the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training. The Emergency Management Division also coordinates the City’s participation in the VC Alert Notification System.
