2015 Houston County Hazard Mitigation Plan

The Emergency Operations Plan, or EOP, is the backbone of emergency management in Houston County. The plan contains information pertaining to all manner of emergencies, including preparedness, response, and recovery. The plan is comprised of a Basic Plan and 14 Annexes, as well as a Resource Manual which is not made public due to the sensitive information contained inside. During a disaster, parts of this plan may activate via the Emergency Management Director or Deputy Director to assist in coordination of response and recovery. The EOP is a fluid document, being updated as information changes or requirements to the plan by the state and federal governments are changed.
