The protection of citizens and businesses is a high priority for the Town of Paradise. One of the ways in which the Town meets that responsibility is through the Paradise Emergency Operations Center (EOC). The EOC is activated in the event of a serious or life threatening emergency, such as a fire threat or severe winter storm.
The EOC consists of employees and volunteers that work day and night to protect theTown during an emergency situation. The effort includes:
- operation of emergency shelters and warming/cooling centers
- public and media information
- food and lodging for emergency workers
- sand bags and other pertinent supplies needed by citizens and businesses
- traffic control and evacuations
- other Town/County/State agency coordination
Because emergencies can be small or large, the EOC is designed to operate in a small or large-scale disaster. Town employees, volunteers and cooperating agencies conduct regular practice drills in order to be ready when disaster strikes.
The Town of Paradise also keeps citizens informed through it's community radio station AM 1500 WPQY846
