The Iron County Local Homeless Coordinating Committee has developed this Emergency
Preparedness Plan for two purposes.
- The Emergency Preparedness Plan was developed by the Emergency Preparedness
Plan Subcommittee of the Iron County LHCC to develop and assess annually a local
Emergency Preparedness Plan in accordance with the terms set forth in S.B. 0168,
which states that LHCCs will develop a nonbinding locally appropriate emergency
response plan in coordination with the council of governments of the county in which the
local oversight body provides.
- To evaluate the abilities of local organizations to meet the needs of homeless persons
during an emergency situation. To this end, it is necessary to evaluate the scope of the
local homeless population, identify potential risks and needs of this population during an emergency, and to assess the capacity of local organizations to respond effectively to these risks and needs.
