Emergency Management

Responsibilities

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 City of Moorpark is in the process of updating the City's Emergency Operations Plan (EOP). The EOP establishes a comprehensive, all-hazards approach to managing disasters and emergencies across a spectrum of phases including preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation.

In early November 2021, the City of Moorpark released a survey seeking feedback from residents on matters most important to them in the event of an emergency. The survey results were taken into account during the creation of the first draft of the EOP. Moorpark residents can now review the draft EOP and provide public comment at the EOP Update Public Workshop on February 23rd, 2022, from 6:00-7:00 PM, and March 1st, 2022, from 6:00-7:00 PM.
