DEPC makes recommendations to the Chancellor’s Cabinet related to emergency preparedness and safety.
DEPC maintains the District’s Emergency Preparedness and Response Plan as mandated by the State of California, Office of Emergency Services. The plan is designed to effectively coordinate the use of College and community resources to protect life and property immediately following a major natural, accidental disaster or emergency, and continuity of campus operations. The plan provides for multiple level emergency response organization and is intended to structure and facilitate the flow of emergency information and resources within and between organizational levels.
Committee responsibilities include updating the emergency plan, coordinating all training and exercises, developing standard operating practices, review of threat assessment reports, and maintaining emergency response teams at each College and the District Administrative Center. DEPC also coordinates the management of emergency resources, including supplies, equipment, technology, consultants, and training facilitators.
