From: Carlos A. Gimenez
Mayor

Subject: Resolution Authorizing the Adoption of the Miami-Dade County Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners approve the attached resolution adopting the Miami-Dade County Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan. The Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan adheres to the State of Florida Division of Emergency Management compliance criteria set forth in Florida Administrative Code Chapter 27P-6.

The Miami-Dade County Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan establishes official emergency management policy for all County agencies in response to and recovery from emergencies and disasters within the County. The Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan also establishes policy for any municipality that, pursuant to Florida Administrative Code Chapter 27P, has not obtained official approval for its own plan formally filed with the State of Florida Division of Emergency Management.

SCOPE
This Plan is countywide.

FISCAL IMPACT/FUNDING SOURCE
There is no fiscal impact with this Plan.

TRACK RECORD/MONITOR
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue’s Director of Emergency Management, Curtis Sommerhoff, will monitor this Plan.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
BACKGROUND
The intent of the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan is to provide an organized system for preparedness, response and recovery by which County officials are guided in applying their statutory responsibilities of direction and control during a disaster event. The backbone of the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan is its use of the Incident Command structure and application in a manner that is consistent with the State of Florida Comprehensive Emergency Management and Federal Emergency Management Agency National Response Framework. The Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan provides a design for the effective management of any emergency situation within Miami-Dade County in coordination with the state and federal government.

The Florida Administrative Code requires that a comprehensive review and revision of the Comprehensive Emergency Management’s Basic Plan be conducted every four years. During the four years prior to the revision, tabletop exercises, full scale exercises, as well as actual emergencies and disasters, were employed to evaluate the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan. Following each exercise and activation of the Emergency Operations Center, events were critiqued and appropriate changes incorporated into the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan. The Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan was also revised to delineate the operational roles and responsibilities of the County’s major departments with as well as task checklists for countywide emergencies. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue’s Office of Emergency Management met with each of the major departments listed in the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan and those departments have verified their responsibilities. The Miami-Dade Fire Rescue’s Office of Emergency Management also worked with federal, state, county, municipal, and private entities responsible, knowledgeable, and experienced in the specific issues addressed in the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan in ensuring the current plan reflected up to date information.

In accordance with Florida Administrative Code, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue’s Office of Emergency Management submitted Miami-Dade County’s revised Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan to the Florida Division of Emergency Management for review. On March 22, 2013, the Florida Division of Emergency Management notified Miami-Dade Fire Rescue’s Office of Emergency Management that Miami-Dade County’s revised Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan met the criteria outlined in Florida Administrative Code Chapter 27P and required adoption by resolution of the Board of County Commissioners in accordance with Rule 27P-6.006(10) of the Florida Administrative Code.
