Emergency Operation Plan and Evacuation Plan

City of Cloverdale Emergency Operation Plan

The City of Cloverdale's Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) outlines how the City of Cloverdale —its government, stakeholder agencies, community-based organizations (CBO), business community and residents—coordinate their response to major emergencies and disasters. This plan is regularly updated by staff and approved by the City Council.

The EOP identifies operational strategies and plans for managing inherently complex and potentially catastrophic events. City assets, resources, and departments are potentially vulnerable and may become overwhelmed. With this in mind, the EOP is designed to promote flexibility whenever possible and is not intended to limit the use of good judgment and common sense.

The City of Cloverdale has officially adopted and integrated the following emergency management, response, and coordination systems:

  • Incident Command System (ICS)
  • Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS)
  • National Incident Management System (NIMS)

This EOP addresses the four phases of emergency management:

  • Preparedness
  • Response
  • Recovery
  • Mitigation

Sonoma County EOP Annex - Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS)

The Sonoma County EOP Annex outlines procedures that guide a collaborative response in the Sonoma County Operational Area (Op Area) to the threat or actual de-energization of electrical systems due to extreme fire danger conditions – otherwise known as a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS). This is a supporting annex to the Sonoma County Operational Area Emergency Operations Plan (EOP).

This Annex provides direction for Operational Area stakeholder organizations including County departments, cities, special districts, community groups, and others, ensuring multi-disciplinary and multi-jurisdictional agency coordination in accordance with the County’s EOP, California Emergency Services Act, Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS), and National Incident Management System (NIMS).

This Annex is designed to accomplish the following:

  • Serve as a planning document to support further development of associated response plans by County departments and agencies.
  • Provide an overview of the threat that PSPS incidents pose to the Operational Area and describe the potential scope of impacts.
  • Provide the response management team with contextual information to guide initial response planning.
  • Ensure systems and resources are sufficient to address the concurrent impacts of a PSPS incident and a major wildfire.

City of Cloverdale Evacuation Zones

Evacuation Zones Map

The City of Cloverdale Police Department developed designated evacuation zones and evacuation routes for the entire community to address the safe and efficient evacuation of our community during an emergency. Police Chief Jason Ferguson recommends that you familiarize yourself with the evacuations zones and routes in case an emergency evacuation is needed. Please be aware that Alert messages issued during an evacuation situation may reference the City of Cloverdale Evacuation Zone Map

Depending on conditions, the scale of an emergency, and varying hazards, modifications to designated zones could become necessary during an emergency. If changes to the boundaries of a zone were needed during an emergency, the City would NOT evacuate an entire zone but instead will require the evacuation of a part of a zone or zones.

It is important to know your evacuation zone and evacuation routes from your home and places you visit in the City.
