Wake County Hazard Mitigation Plan - January 2020


2015 Action #


2019 Status Status Comments/Explanation

Trailer Transportation - Deploy step van and tandem axel trailers for transportation of emergency barricades and other equipment on a large scale.

The police department and the public works department have access to trailers and trucks to deploy resources as needed throughout town. Completed and constantly reevaluated. We currently have plans of action in place at the Law Enforcement Center that are implemented in the case of large scale emergency situations and disaster responses. Command and control protocols are in place that outline the framework of our responses to planned and unplanned events which detail which command implements will be mobilized within the Emergency Operations Center. All of our command and supervisory staff undergo FEMA NIMS and ICS training, and our planned actions follow in accordance with the best practices recommended by the Department of Homeland Security. In addition, any of our personnel wishing to promote into supervisory positions are tested through table top scenario exercises intended to ensure their knowledge and capabilities in managing a large-scale event. Partnerships have been established through mutual aid agreements, memorandums of understanding, and other such agreements with the various public sector and private sector stakeholders that would be involved in the mitigation, response to, and recovery from large- scale emergencies and other disasters. Not Completed, but attainable through mutual aid with WCEM. The police department does not have a specifically dedicated mobile command center. However, in circumstances where one would be required, our mutual aid agreement with Wake County Emergency Management authorizes that one be requested for loan and brought to the scene of an incident command situation. In most cases, the initial command field response to a large scale situation would be managed from a command post location operated out of a commander’s vehicle. Prolonged incidents may see that command operations remain at the original command post that was established in the field or those operations could be moved back to the Law Enforcement Center’s Emergency Operations Center as circumstances dictate.



Emergency Response Plans for the Police Station – Develop plans that address immediate action to be undertaken for all personnel assigned to the district in the event of any large scale emergency. A critique will be completed after each critical incident to document need for improvements.



Mobile Command Post-Available 24 hours a day and equipped to communicate with all agencies in the Triangle including Emergency Management, State agencies, fire departments, etc.
