Half Moon Bay Emergency Operations Center

Government officials have been using the Half Moon Bay Emergency Operations Center for years as a hub of planning for the unthinkable. City officials have given new thought to how best to use the facility in the case of an emergency.

Emergency-conscious Coastsiders will likely be eager to see Half Moon Bay’s upcoming emergency operations plans, which detail how and where city staff will respond during natural disasters and other worst-case scenarios. 

Half Moon Bay’s final Emergency Operations Plan is expected to be published next month. Though documents like this help jurisdictions get federal relief funding, they also serve as the blueprint for the operations of city staff and contractors during big emergencies.
