From serious winter storms to illness to natural disasters to chemical exposures -- the plan designates responsibilities and actions such as how to utilize internal resources; when to request assistance; what contracts are in place to support essential services; communicating with residents, employees and neighboring agencies; and command structure.
We follow FEMA practices including the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the Incident Command System (ICS). These standard response protocols enable us to work with other agencies easily if an emergency requires support outside of city resources.
Emergency preparedness goes beyond city borders -- Northglenn works in conjunction with North Metro Fire Rescue, Adams County and the State of Colorado for emergency planning and response.
