Emergency Operations Plan

The Dauphin County Emergency Operations Plan serves as an emergency management link between local municipalities, the County, and state government while incorporating the organizational concepts of the National Response Framework (NRF).

  • All emergency response activities within the county utilize the National Incident Management System (NIMS). This includes prescribed incident command structures that will be used by local emergency responders at the scene of emergencies, and at the County Emergency Operations Center (EOC).
  • Consistent with municipal, County, Commonwealth and federal doctrine, this plan employs a functional, all-hazards approach to manage the assistance the county is likely to need or provide during a large or complex disaster.
  • This plan serves to satisfy the requirements of the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Services Code.
