RECOMMENDATION
Receive presentation by Coastal Bend Council of Governments on Donations Management Exercise and Emergency Management Plan Updates.
BACKGROUND
The mission of the Nueces County Office of Emergency Management is to evaluate, understand, plan, and prepare for the unexpected while teaming actively with neighboring communities, departments, volunteer organizations, and the private sector. Additionally, this work includes educating and informing the community of issues and actions taken on their behalf, maintaining the County's all-hazard Emergency Management Plan and coordinating the activities of the County's Emergency Operations Center. Through active engagement with various community stakeholders, evaluation of actual occurrences, lessons learned from other communities and knowledge of existing and desired capabilities, our office has identified areas of required update within the Human Services and Donations Management Annexes of the Nueces County Emergency Management Plan. Additionally, our office recommended an exercise to fully evaluate the effectiveness of the existing plan and desires to revise the plan accordingly based on the after action review and improvement plan process. The purposes of these annexes are as follows: a. Human Services (Annex O)- The purpose of this annex is to make provisions for providing human services support to people who require food, clothing, mental health services, and victim’s compensation in the aftermath of an emergency. The services described in this annex may be needed in the aftermath of incidents of limited scale as well as major emergencies and disasters. b. Donations Management (Annex T)- The purpose of this annex is to outline the concept of operation, organizational arrangements, and responsibilities for coordinating the efforts of volunteer groups and local government to manage donations of goods and services that may occur in the aftermath of an emergency situation. In consultation with the Director of Human Services, our office recommends a thorough evaluation of these annexes, exercise to test their effectiveness and a revision based on identified areas of improvement from the exercise.
