This page provides current the Emergency Operation Plan and Annexes for Sonoma County.

The Sonoma County Operational Area Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) is a guidebook for phases of an all-hazards emergency management process within the Operational Area (County). The phases of emergency management include preparedness, response, and recovery, and mitigation. The EOP is intended to facilitate coordination between agencies and jurisdictions within Sonoma County while ensuring the protection of life, property, and the environment during disasters. This Plan provides the framework for a coordinated effort among local community, county, city, special district, private sectors, regional, state, tribal, and federal partners. The EOP also reflects the county efforts to ensure equity and reach members of traditionally underserved communities.

What are annexes?

Annexes provide additional information in support of the EOP. The EOP is the all-hazard plan. The annexes give additional information relevant to a specific threat or response action, when needed. Some examples are Evacuation Plan, Community Alert & Warning, Russian River Flood Plan, and Extreme Heat Events Plan. They are supporting documents, and changes to the EOP will be reflected in future annexes and updates.

A community’s outcome in a disaster can be greatly improved through preparedness for all hazards. For more information on preparedness go to SoCoEmergency.org/get-ready

    The COVID-19 pandemic continues to pose significant threats to life safety, medical/healthcare systems, social infrastructure, and economic activity, and is expected to continue in some capacity through at least the end of 2021.  Additionally, even as vaccines are made available and the number of those fully vaccinated increases, the prevention measures needed to protect individuals from infection including social distancing, are expected to be needed well into 2022.  The direct impacts of the virus and its indirect effects on public safety, emergency management, communications and social infrastructure will affect and compound the response to existing hazards including wildfire, power shutoffs and winter storms/flooding.

    Sonoma County is home to a wide array of disaster possibilities such as earthquakes, fires and floods. It has become widespread knowledge from past disasters that often people will not evacuate their homes unless they can bring their pets and livestock with them. For many people, pets are considered a member of the family. No one wants to leave animals behind, and when asked to do so, many owners will risk their own lives and the lives of others to save their animals.

    Sonoma County has a beautiful and diverse coastal boundary, ranging from sheer cliffs to sandy beaches.  Residents and tourists are attracted to the coast for a variety of reasons, including; escaping the inland heat, enjoying the majestic vistas, exploring the many beaches, sampling the famous seafood, hiking, and abalone diving.  Coastal weather, ocean and surf conditions can change quickly.  These conditions along with the physical environment combine to create hazards for people whom if unprepared, unfamiliar or inattentive may require an effective and efficient, well-coordinated emergency response.  This multi-agency plan has been created to deliver the best level of service.
