Cove Emergency Operations Plan
In 2012 Shady Cove kicked off a
program to help the City and residents become better prepared for natural
and man-made disasters. With help from Jackson County Emergency
Management, Shady Cove received a grant to update their Emergency
Operations Plan. Like building a house; this plan is only the foundation
on which our community can move forward and build a comprehensive program
to make the City and our residents better prepared for a disaster.
Additionally, in 2012 Shady Cove updated their ďNatural Hazard
Mitigation PlanĒ (NHMP). This is required by FEMA and is part of a
larger county wide plan that allows the city to be eligible for possible
future grants to help with mitigation projects. As part of this process a
risk assessment was completed to help identify the most likely natural
disasters our city will face. All potential disasters were assessed;

2013 will be a year of continued
work on emergency preparedness. The City has contracted with Building
Department Services to help the city prepare and manage the program. Ed

year career. If you or a group
