County Emergency Operations Plan

Cleburne County is subject to major emergencies and disasters that can pose a significant threat to public safety and/or health, and lead to physical damage. The general types of such events are natural disasters, technological hazards, human-caused, and terrorist attacks.

This plan employs an all-hazards approach and:

  • coordinates operations among organizations and individuals to implement specific actions when a disaster occurs that exceeds the capability of any one agency; e.g., the fire department;

  • sets forth lines of authority and organizational relationships and shows how actions are to be coordinated;

  • describes how people and property will be protected in emergencies and disasters;

  • identifies personnel, equipment, facilities, supplies, and other resources available —within the county or by mutual aid agreement—for use during response and recovery operations;

  • provides hazard-specific information needed for effective response and recovery actions;

  • provides information and procedures to facilitate coordination with the State of Alabama and the federal government;

  • identifies steps to address mitigation concerns during response and recovery
