This plan describes the emergency procedures that will be used in the event of a terrorist threat or incident that occurs or impacts the Kern County Operational Area (OA). The Kern County Office of Emergency Services (OES) and the Kern County Oversight Working Group have developed this plan.
This Terrorism Contingency Plan is designed to establish responsibilities, and to coordinate preparedness, response and recovery from a terrorist initiated incident, with emphasis placed upon incidents involving Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). This contingency plan supplements the existing Kern County Emergency Plan. It is intended to provide general guidance. Actual response will be dependent upon conditions existing at the time of the emergency, including the availability of local and mutual aid resources.
