The county faces periodic river valley and urban flooding events, earthquakes, severe weather, hazardous materials releases, and transportation accidents, and it has the potential to be affected by volcanic and terrorist activity. State law requires that cities and counties have emergency programs, but provides only minimal guidance to special purpose districts, businesses, and non-profits. State statutes offer minimal guidance on multi-disciplinary or multi-jurisdictional disaster responses. The population density, complex system of governance, and significant risks we face (for both natural and technological disasters) create the need to plan for a coordinated response among public and private entities in the county. The Regional Policy Committee of King County, comprised of elected officials from Seattle, Suburban Cities, and King County, passed a motion in October, 1998, that initiated development of a regional disaster plan for King County. This Regional Disaster Plan for Public and Private Organizations in King Countv provides the framework needed to inter-link the emergency response plans of a wide range of organizations. By conveying "who is going to do what" among all public and private organizations, this plan allows potentially hundreds of entities to behave in a coordinated manner following a severe disruption. The process for creating this plan involved representatives from local government, specific emergency functions, schools, private sector, hospitals, nonprofits, and other stakeholder groups. The plan emphasizes collaborative response operations, capitalizing on geographical coordination within the County already utilized by fire and emergency medical services. The goal is to streamline the infonnation necessary to assess countywide impacts of disaster and increase the speed and efficiency of the relief effort. Activation of this plan may be for an intense, localized event, or a widespread regional or catastrophic event. It is intended to be activated in conjunction with other state and local emergency plans. Mutual Aid Agreements are still the "first line of defense" for plan participants. Because mutual aid (sharing with "like" agencies) may be unavailable during regional disasters, the plan defines the legal and financial ground rules for resource sharing among plan participants. BASIC PLAN, VerSIon: 5-1-01 (Printed: 05/30/02) 4/33 Regional Disaster Plan for Public and Private Organizations in King County, Washington The Regional Disaster Plan for Public and Private Organizations in King County is being designed using the model of the Federal Response Plañ; i.e. basic plan followed by a series of "Emergency Support Functions" (ESF) such as ESF-2 Communications and ESF-I. Transportation. The Regional Policy Committee has provided its endorsement of the work completed on the Omnibus Legal and Financial Agreement and early drafts of several Emergency Support Functions. The Regional Disaster Planning Task Force has developed five other documents as part of the initial phase of planning work. This "Basic Plan Package" includes: . The Omnibus Legal and Financial Agr-eement, . The "Basic Plan," . The Basic Plan's Appendix 1: Direction and Coordination, . Emergency Support Function I: Transportation, and . Emergency Support Function 8: Health & Medical Services. This initial "Basic Plan Package" will be sent to participating organizations for their signatures. Changes to the Omnibus Agreement, the Basic Plan, the Plan's Appendices, or any ESFs will be developed by the Task Force and then reviewed and approved by the Emergency Management Advisory Committee prior to being sent to participating organizations for their endorsement. Following the initial Basic Plan Package, other Emergency Support Functions, or ESFs, for the Regional Plan will be developed. The Task Force has selected five ESFs for their workplan for the next year, 2002: . Resource Support . Debris Management . Communications . Mass Care . Damage Assessment These ESFs will be submitted to all participating entities for review and appTOval as they are developed. Participation in the Regional Disaster Plan is voluntary and its success will be dependent upon widespread endorsement of various cities and organizations throughout the County. The King County Office of Emergency Management will coordinate updates and maintain the plan and its documents. The "Emergency Management Action Committee" (EMAC) will oversee modifications and approve any changes. BASIC PLAN, Version: 5-1-01 (Printed: 0930/02) 5/33 Regional Disaster Plan for Public and Private Organizations in King County, Washington I. INTRODUCTION A. B. Mission The mission of the King COlll1ty Regional Disaster Plan is to provide a fiamework whereby cooperative relationships can be formed between public, private and non- profit organizations. This plan and the relationships it develops are intended to facilitate the coopera1ive regional effort of responding to the effects of natural, technological and human caused emergencies. Purpose This plan, developed in a similar format to the Federal Response Plan, establishes the architecture for a systematic, coordinated, and effective response to multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional emeTgencies and disasters that occur within the geographic boundaries of King County, Washington. The plan defines common assumptions and policies, establishes a shared concept of operations, and pre-assigns functional responsibilities to appropriate disciplines, private and nonprofit organizations, and government agencies and jurisdictions. Through the implementation of this plan, the resources and capabilities of the public, private, and non-profit sectors can be more efficiently utilized to minimize the loss of life and property and to protect the environmental and economic health of King County. c. Scope This plan may apply to all public, private, and non-profit entities in geographic King County. As a cooperative endeavor, any private business, nonprofit organization, government agency or special purpose district can choose to be a signatory and participate with this plan. Because it is an all-hazards response plan, it applies to any event that concurrently challenges multiple jurisdictions or multiple disciplines. This plan is limited in scope. It addresses response activities in those events where normal emergency response processes and capabilities become overtaxed, or where there is a need for regional coordination of response operations due to the complexity or duration of the event(s). BASIC PLAN, Version: 5-1-01 (Printed: 05/30/02) 6133 Regional Disaster Plan for Public and Private Organizations in King County, Washington This "Basic Plan" focuses exclusively on disaster response. The plan does, however, provide a framework for futUre, coordinated efforts to address regional mitigation, preparedness, and recovery issues. Relationships with other counties and neighboring jurisdictions are not specifically included in this plan, though they may be included in future revisions. D. Organization Activation of this plan may be for an intense, localized event, or a widespread regional or catastrophic event. It is intended to be activated in conjunction with other state and local emergency plans. Mutual Aid Agreements are still the "first line of defense" for plan participants. Because mutual aid (sharing with "like" agencies) may be unavailable during regional disasters, the plan defines the legal and financial ground rules for resource sharing among plan participants. Incorporated jurisdictions in King County are mandated by RCW 38.52.070 to perform emergency management functions within their jurisdictional boundaries. Although special purpose jurisdictions and private businesses are not mandated under RCW 38.52, this plan allows such entities to participate in this regional response plan. II. POLICIES A. Authority In recognition of the many natural, technological and human caused disasters that could possibly affect King County, this plan is developed undeT the authority of: - King County Council Motion #10566 and consistent with those listed in section VII. References of this document. An Omnibus Legal and Financial Agreement has been developed (as a separate document) to provide the legal platform for resource sharing among p3rticipating organizations. The Washington State Fire Resource Mobilization Plan provides for mobilization and mutual use of fire fighting resources in response to a fire or other disaster which overwhelms local and mutual aid resources. The elements of this Regional Disaster Plan are designed to work in conjunction with the operational elements of the State Fire Mobilization Plan. BASIC PLAN, Version: 5-1-01 (Printed: 05/30/02) 7133 Regional Disaster Plan for Public and Private Organizations in King County, Washington B. Assignment of Responsibilities Section V of this plan, identifies the basic functional responsibilities of the signatory participants to this Regional Disaster Plan. Specific responsibilities are identified in the section of this plan titled Emergency Support Functions (ESFs). ESFs will be established to designate response activities for specific emergency management functions. c. Limitations The Regional Disaster Plan is a voluntary agreement among participating organizations, and as such, no participating organization has "control" or authority over another participating organization except where stated elsewhere in federal, state or local laws. This agreement pioneers new territory as a cooperative agreement among public and private organizations, and as such, may not have completely anticipated the issues in public/private cooperation and resource sharing. During simulations, exercises, or real disaster, interactions may occur that illustrate shortcomings in the design that would require modifications or clarifications in this plan. In a situation where the King County EOC cannot perform the duties outlined in this plan, those duties could be assumed by an unaffected Zone or by the Washington State EOc. This plan is an attempt to create a shared concept for how individual, autonomous private and nonprofit organizations, and government agencies and jurisdictions will work together in times of extreme emergency or disaster. To be effectively implemented, this plan will: . require the training of key personnel and a program of exercises to test the plan and the participating entities understanding of it, . outline a voluntary arrangement among public, private and nonprofit organizations and will be a framework for cooperative regional disaster and emergency response, . not only need to be adopted widely among cities and special purpose districts, but also endorsed and adopted by major employers, the non- profit sector, and utility providers, and . potentially require the emergency plans of cities, the county, non- profits, businesses, and utility providers to have minor modifications to be appropriately linked with the model presented here. BASIC PLAN. Version: 5-1.0! (Printed: 05/30/02) 8133 Regional Disaster Plan for Public and Private Organizations in King County, Washington Signatories to this plan will make every æasonable effort to prepaæ for their æsponsibilitiesof this plan in the event of an emergency or disaster. Hòwever, all resources and systems aæ vulnerable to natural, technological and human caused disaster events and may be overwhelmed. Signatories can only attempt to respond based on the situation, infonTIation and resources available at the time. Theæ is no guarantee implied by this plan that a perfect response to an emergency or disaster incident will be practical or possible. The Signatories of this plan including their officials and employees shall not be liable for any claim based upon the exercise of, or failure to exercise or perfonTI a public duty or a discretionary function or duty while carrying out the provisions of this plan. Functionality of this plan depends on the internal zone relationships of the participants and their ability to communicate, coordinate, and cooperate both within and across discipline (specific groups such as fire, police, public works) and jurisdictional boundaries. III. SITUATION Á. Emergency I Disaster Conditions King County is now the 12th most populous county in the United States, with a population of over 1.7 million residents. The complexity of governance in the King County ægion presents unique challenges for disaster response. Washington State law allows a very high degree of independence for the cities and individual taxing districts. There are 39 cities and more than 120 special districts in King County with over 500 elected officials. Though many of these public entities, non-profits and major employers have emergency response plans, the degree of coordination among them is minimal. King County is at risk for a wide-range of natural, technological, and human-caused disasters. Over the last forty years King County has had eighteen (18) presidential declaæd disasters; most of which were severe weather events. Our region is also at risk for three kinds of earthquakes: shallow, deep (or intra-plate), and subduction (or mega-thrust). We experience deep earthquakes (historically between 6.0 and 7.4 Richter magnitude) roughly every 30 years. The last such event occulTed in February 2001. BASIC PLAN, Version: 5-1-0 I (Printed: 05/30102) 9133 Regional Disaster Plan for Public and Private Organizations in King County, Washington Mount Rainier, rising just outside the southeast comer of King County, presents a significant risk of volcanic hazards, particulady lahars. We also have the potential for severe weather events including floods, ice, wind, and snowstorms. We have landslide risks, transportation and fixed-site hazardous material issues, and are vulnerable to terrorist activities. Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and King County International Airport / Boeing Field are both regional airports with significant air traffic and attendant hazards. We also have high capacity rail, seaport, and interstate highway accident risks. King County has numerous geographic and topographic features that present significant disaster response challenges. Puget Sound borders the county to the west and the Cascade Mountain range to the east. Lake Union is on the north side of downtown Seattle, and Lake Washington, which is over 25 miles long, separates Seattle and the eastside cities. Transportation corridors are very restricted and congested even on good days. For more information on disaster risk in King County, see the King County Hazard Identification and Vulnerability Analysis (HIV A). The HIV A is available at public libraries and the King County Office of Emergency Management website: www.metrokc.gov/prepare. B. Planning Assumptions I. As the King Countv Emergencv Management Plan deals primarily with internal King County Government functions, there exists no dedicated regional point of disaster coordination in King County, nor a protocol for 'regional' inter-disciplinary cooperation, beyond the voluntary coordination between cities and the King County Emergency Operations Center. 2. Emergency response and basic lifeline resources and services will be limited in the first several days of a regional disaster, while injuries and the need for emergency services will be at an increased level. 3. Provisions for basic human needs (food, water, and supplies for sanitation and shelter) may be in short supply or unavailable. BASIC PLAN, Version: 5.1.01 (Printed: 0'.}01O2) 10/33 RegionalDisaster Plan for Public and Private Organizations in King County, Washington 4. Private employers, nonprofit organizations, government agencies and special districts will commit all available resources to address their internal organizational and jurisdictional challenges before supporting a wider regional response. 5. Unaffected, or minimally affected, gTOUps will be willing - and more available - to help others when disaster strikes. 6. Plans and mechanisms for "back filling" services and resources will encourage the sharing and movement ofresources to those who need them most. 7. Certain infrastructure failures are probable during disasters, requiring a reliance on emergency communications, creating a demand for mass care services, and presenting challenges to emergency service delivery. 8. Transportation TOutes may be blocked for days or weeks. 9. The availability of emergency services will be contingent on the nature and scope of the event. 10. Private businesses, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and other jurisdictions that have responsibilities under this regional disaster plan will develop appropriate internal plans and capabilities for their own disaster operations (see: "Assignment of Responsibilities" section). IV. CONCEPT OF OPERATIONS A. Purpose This plan provides a structure for disaster response operations that: - Augments existing mutual aid agreements. - Uses geographic divisions of the county [0 facilitate coordinated efforts. - Is based on tiered levels of response. - Includes pre-designated legal and financial ground rules. - Uses the Incident Command System as its operational protocol. BASIC PLAN, Version: 5-1-01 (Printed: 05/30/02) 11/33 Regional Disaster Plan for Public and Private Organizations in King County, Washington Mutual Aid Agreements Mutual Aid is considered the pre-agreed shariñg of resources between entities to support response activities. During an emergency or disaster, requests for mutual aid within the zone should be the first call for help. During an emergency or when requests for mutual aid can not be gmnted, any threatened participating organization can request resources from other participating organizations. Mutual aid is assistance within a discipline. This plan facilitates cross zone and cross-discipline sharing of resources. Geographic Divisions Predetermined geogmphic divisions of the county will facilitate efficient preplanning efforts as well as the sharing of information and coordination of priorities, opemtions, and resources during an event. The four Regional Emergency Coordination Zones correlate to the existing King County Fire Zones. Former Fire Zones I and 2 have been consolidated into Regional Emergency Coordination Zone 1. No Zone 2 currently exists and the City of Seattle is designated Zone 5. (Section IX: Regional Emergency Coordination Zones Map, page 33, shows each zone.) Each Zone will, through the facilitation of King County Office of Emergency Management and its Zone Emergency Planning Committee, develop protocols and procedures for carrying out inter- and intra- Zone coordination and response functions. During the response to an event, these zone coordination functions may occur through the King County EOC, a dedicated Zone Coordination Center or in a decentralized manner. Organizations that provide services throughout geog¡-aphic King County, ("Regional Service Providers") may not have the resources to coordinate their service delivery and response activities directly with all four Emergency Coordination Zones simultaneously. Instead, these Regional Service Providers may provide a single point of coordination through the King County EOC or the City of Seattle EOc. E~.amples of Regional Service Providers include: Metro Transit; King County Wastewater Treatment Division; Seattle Public Utilities; American Red Cross Seattle/King County Chapter; AT&T Wireless; and the Washington Trucking Association. Some Regional Service Providers may provide a representative directly to the affected zone and/or the Seattle and King County EOCs. ßASIC PLAN, Version: 5-1-01 (Printed: 05/30102) 12/33 Regional Disaster Plan for Public and Private Organizations in King County, Washington The procedures each zone will use (to carry our their functions) will be developed within each zone and outlined in Appendix I: Direction and Coordination of this plan. Tiered Levels of Response In an intense, localized emergency or disaster event participants to this plan will be alerted and may be asked to support those who are affected. The request for support may (or may not) come through established zone coordination efforts. Where multiple affected sites are involved, inter-zone coordination becomes more important with affected areas requesting appropriate assistance ttom the unaffected areas. For catastrophic events, when all participating private and nonprofit organizations and government agencies and jurisdictions are concurrently challenged, participants will focus on sharing damage information, coordinating response activities, and collectively addressing shared priorities. Regional movement of resources and services will be driven by the needs of the organizations that are part of this regional plan. Any participating government agency or jurisdiction can initiate this plan at the request of the jurisdiction's chief elected officer. Legal and Financial Ground Rules The legal and financial ground rules are designed to: . Ensure that those who risk being overwhelmed have timely access to resources and assistance. . Encourage a sense of security, so those with available resources feel safe in offering assistance without risking excessive losses or liabilities. . Establish an accountinglbilling process that is congruent with FEMA policies on Federal disaster assistance to encourage appropriate financial recovery. To this end, participants will be asked to sign a concurrent Omnibus Legal and Financial Agreement that validates and provides more details on the financial and legal concepts presented here. BASIC PLAN, Version: 5-1-01 (Printed: 05/30/02) 13133 Regional Disaster Plan for Public and Private Organizations in King County, Washington Any participating organization may enter into separate emergency assistance or mutual aid agreements with any õther entity. No such separate agreement shall tenninate any responsibility under the Regional Plan or Omnibus Agreement. Participation in this ReIPonal Disaster Plan shall not be interpreted or construed to create an association, joint venture, or partnership among the participating organizations or to impose any partnership obligation or liability upon any participating organizations. Incident Command System This Regional Disaster Plan for Public and Private Organizations in King Countv and the zone coordination efforts will follow the Incident Command System principles as mandated in RCW 38.52.070. Zone coordination activities will not supercede the authority of, OT take over the resources, assets, or personnel of the participating private and nonprofit organizations, government agencies, or jurisdictions. Participating entities that offer available resources and services do so voluntarily, but in the context of working within a coordinated response system. Resources and services that are loaned to other participaring orgaIrizations will remain \U1der the operational control of the bolTOwing entity \U1til recalled or replaced by the lending entity. v.
