Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan
The Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) establishes the framework to ensure that Miami-Dade County and its municipalities are prepared to deal with these hazards.
EOC Activation Levels:
The Miami-Dade Emergency Operations Center (EOC) operates at one of three levels of readiness in order to carry out its mission. These levels are described and are patterned to closely match the Florida Division of Emergency Management EOC activation levels to maintain consistent definitions.
The Residential Health Care Facility (RHCF) Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan Review Program was introduced as a result of state legislation requiring certain health care facilities to prepare and annually update a comprehensive emergency management plan (CEMP).
The Emergency Management Accreditation Program
The Miami-Dade Office of Emergency Management
has been granted full accreditation by The Emergency
Management Accreditation Program, the only
nationally recognized accreditation process for
emergency management programs.
Communities Organized to Respond in Emergencies
Miami-Dade Communities Organized to Respond in Emergencies (M-D C.O.R.E.) is a coalition of faith-based and community organizations established to meet the immediate and long-term needs of the community when affected by a disaster. Connections between these organizations and with emergency management professionals will help foster communications and coordination, enhance preparedness, speed recovery efforts, and create more disaster-resilient communities.
