Emergency Services Plans

The Oxford Emergency Services prepares for emergency events by creating emergency plans. These plans include detailed procedures in the case of different emergencies, including the roles and responsibilities of Oxford, Alabama state, and federal agencies. In the immediate period before a known emergency, such as a developing hurricane, Emergency Services coordinates with Calhoun County Public Safety agencies, Calhoun County Public Works agencies, Oxford Utilities, and hospitals to minimize the emergency's impact and rapidly respond to the emergency.

Emergency Response Services in Oxford, AL

In the case of an Oxford emergency, Emergency Services coordinates response services through an Emergency Operations Center (EOC). An EOC has a communications network, an uninterruptible power supply, and resources to continuously manage and respond to the emergency. Emergency Services may activate the EOC before the emergency, in the case of known events, or immediately after the emergency, for events such as an earthquake. The EOC remains activated throughout the recovery period, and it can also be used during non-emergencies for Oxford disaster planning and emergency preparedness training.

These include resources on natural disasters, including hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, fires, and floods.
