Sussex County Emergency Operations Plan
Sussex County Emergency Operations Plan
Hurricane Sandy

Sussex County, like all Virginia Local Governments as mandated by the Commonwealth has a State approved and Board of Supervisors adopted Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) and utilizes the National Incident Management System (NIMS) based on Federal Regulations.

However, because Hurricanes are of such size, magnitude and impact on a community, the Sussex County Department of Public Safety, the Public Safety Coordinator, County Administrator and the Board of Supervisors have determined the need to clarify the procedures and basis for the County’s emergency planning efforts used in addressing these massive and potentially catastrophic emergencies for our residents and businesses, as well as, for our planning partners (Towns, Agencies and Volunteer Organizations).
