Emergency Operations Plan

The City of Winchesters Emergency Operations Plan is an all-discipline, all-hazards plan that establishes a single, comprehensive framework for managing incidents in the city.  It is compatible with the National Response Framework and provides the structure for coordinating within our local and with the state government in delivery of disaster assistance.  The plan improves the City of Winchester’s capability to respond to and recover from threatened or actual natural, technological or man-made disasters.
