    "We are performing our annual review and update of the county's emergency managment plan. What all needs to be included in the plan?"

    What are the requirements of an emergency management plan?

    Government Code §418.106 provides that an emergency management plan must provide for wage, price, and rent controls and other economic stabilization methods in the event of a disaster. It must also provide for curfews, blockades and limitations on utility use in an area affected by a disaster, and rules governing entrance to and exit from the affected area, and other security measures. For more information, see the publication Weathering the Storm: Disaster Preparedness and Response.
