In accordance with the provisions of Chapter 252, Fla. Stat., and Volume I, Article II, Emergency Management, Section 37 of the Escambia County Code of Ordinances, the Department of Public Safety, Division of Emergency Management is responsible for the development and maintenance of the Escambia County Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP).
The CEMP is a “living” and constantly evolving document that provides a foundational, all-hazards, multi-jurisdictional and multi-organizational plan that facilitates and coordinates the community’s resources in response to and recovery from natural or man-made disasters that may impact the community. The CEMP has also been designed to seamlessly integrate with both State and federal disaster plans for a more efficient and effective response to community needs.
Every four years, the CEMP undergoes an extensive review and approval process with the State of Florida. The CEMP was last approved by the State in 2019 and is available in the link below.
