            City of Arlington - Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan

          City of Arlington Comprehensive
          Emergency Management Plan
          Promulgation

Pursuant to WA State RCW 38.53.070 and WAC 118-06, I am hereby
promulgating the City of Arlington Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan
to provide direction in mitigating against, preparing for, responding to, and
recovering from emergencies and disasters threatening life or property within the
City.

This document meets the requirements of the National Incident Management
System and supersedes any previously promulgated Comprehensive Emergency
Management Plans or comprehensive emergency management plans completed
on behalf of the City of Arlington.

The Arlington Fire Department will bi-annually coordinate updates to this plan
and collaborate with its partners to ensure that the emergency planning process
is responsive to the community’s needs.

In the event that a judicial or administrative ruling determines any portion of this
plan to be invalid, such ruling will not affect the validity of the remaining portions
of the plan.

Each city agency and community partner listed herein shall become familiar with
this plan and must establish policies and procedures to ensure efficient and
effective execution of emergency responsibilities. By being prepared, we can
better serve the citizens of the City of Arlington.




Mayor Margaret Larson                              May           2010

            City of Arlington - Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan


I INTRODUCTION

The hazards facing the City of Arlington include not only the traditional spectrum of
manmade and natural hazards—wild land and urban fires, floods, oil spills, hazardous
materials releases, transportation accidents, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes,
pandemics, and disruptions to the energy and information technology infrastructure—
but also the potentially deadly and devastating terrorist arsenal of chemical, biological,
radiological, nuclear, and high-yield explosive weapons.
These complex and emerging twenty-first century hazards demand a unified and
coordinated emergency management system that through organized analysis, planning,
decision-making, and assigning of resources will help prevent, prepare for, respond to and
recover from the effects of all hazards within the City of Arlington.
The Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan, using the National Incident
Management System, is an all-hazards plan that provides the structure and
mechanisms for policy and operational coordination for emergency management.
Consistent with the model provided in the National Incident Management System, the
Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan can be partially or fully implemented in
the context of a threat, anticipation of an event, or the response to an event. Selective
implementation through the activation of one or more of the system’s components
allows maximum flexibility in meeting the unique operational and information-sharing
requirements of the situation at hand and enabling effective interaction between various
entities.
Nothing in this plan alters or impedes the ability of a department or individual to carry
out their specific authorities or perform their responsibilities under all applicable laws.
Additionally, nothing in this plan is intended to impact or impede the ability of any
department head to take an issue of concern directly to the Mayor.
The City of Arlington Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan has been formatted
to accommodate all State of Washington Emergency Management guidelines and
applicable laws. The plan’s final draft, as written must be submitted to and approved by
the State of Washington Emergency Management Division (EMD).

1.1 Purpose

The purpose of the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan is to establish a
comprehensive, all-hazards approach to emergency management across a spectrum of
activities including prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery.
The Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan incorporates best practices and
procedures from various incident management disciplines—homeland security,
emergency management, law enforcement, firefighting, hazardous materials response,
public works, public health, emergency medical services, and responder and recovery
worker health and safety—and integrates them into a unified coordinating structure.
The Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan provides the basis for incorporating
all individuals and organizations with disaster responsibilities into the emergency program

January 2010                                                                         Page 12
            City of Arlington - Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan

in the context of incident prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery activities. It
describes capabilities and resources and establishes Emergency Management
functions and responsibilities of departments, employees, and elected officials. It
additionally describes operational processes and protocols to help protect the city from
all potential hazards; save lives; protect public health, safety, property, and the
environment; and reduce adverse psychological consequences and disruptions. Finally,
the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan serves as the foundation for the
development of detailed supplemental plans and procedures to effectively and efficiently
implement emergency management activities and assistance in the context of specific
types of incidents.
The Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan, using the National Incident
Management System, establishes mechanisms to:
      Maximize the integration of incident-related prevention, preparedness, response,
      and recovery activities;
      Improve coordination and integration of government, private-sector, and
      nongovernmental organization partners;
      Maximize efficient utilization of resources needed for effective emergency
      management and Critical Infrastructure/Key Resources (CI/KR) protection and
      restoration;
      Improve incident management communications and increase situational
      awareness across jurisdictions and between the public and private sectors;
      Facilitate emergency mutual aid and emergency support to adjacent jurisdictions.

1.2 Scope and Applicability

The Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan covers the full range of complex
and constantly changing requirements in anticipation of or in response to major
disasters, threats or acts of terrorism, and other emergencies. The Comprehensive
Emergency Management Plan also provides the basis to initiate long-term community
recovery and mitigation activities.
The Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan establishes a comprehensive
general framework for effective use of government, private sector, nongovernmental
organizations, and volunteer resources in emergency management operations.
The Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan establishes interdepartmental and
inter-jurisdictional mechanisms for coordination of emergency management operations.
This plan is applicable to all city departments and employees that may be requested to
provide assistance or conduct operations in the context of actual or potential incidents.

1.3 Authorities
Various federal, state, and local statutory authorities and policies provide the basis for
actions and activities in the context of emergency management. The Comprehensive
Emergency Management Plan has been developed and is maintained to provide a
comprehensive, all-hazards approach to emergency management under the following
authorities:

       10. Homeland Security Presidential Directive –8.

1.4 Assignment of Responsibilities
This plan presents the functional responsibilities accepted by designated city departments
and employees. These are listed in Section III, Responsibilities, of the Comprehensive
Emergency Management Plan.
Emergency Support Functions (ESFs), or specific areas of responsibility, have been
established to designate mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery activities of
specific emergency management functions.

1.5 Key Concepts

This section summarizes key concepts that are reflected throughout the Comprehensive
Emergency Management Plan.
   □ Systematic and coordinated incident management, including protocols for:
           Incident reporting;
           Coordinated action;
           Alert and notification;
           Mobilization of resources;
           Operating under differing threats or threat levels; and
           Integration of crisis and consequence management functions.
   □ Proactive notification and deployment of resources in anticipation of or in
       response to events in coordination and collaboration with adjacent jurisdictions
       and private entities when possible.
   □ Organizing coordinated efforts to minimize damage, restore impacted areas, to
       pre-incident conditions, if feasible, and/or implement programs to mitigate
       vulnerability to future events.
   □ Coordinating incident communication, worker safety and health, private-sector
       involvement, and other activities that are common to the majority of incidents.
   □ Organizing Emergency Support Functions to facilitate the delivery of critical
       resources, assets, and assistance.
   □ Providing mechanisms for vertical and horizontal coordination, communications,
       and information sharing in response to threats or incidents. These mechanisms

January 2010                                                                      Page 14
            City of Arlington - Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan

     facilitate coordination among local entities, as well as between the public and
     private sectors.
   □ Developing detailed supplemental operations, tactical, and hazard-specific
     contingency plans and procedures.
   □ Providing the basis for coordination of interagency and intergovernmental
     planning, training, exercising, assessment, coordination, and information
     exchange.

1.6 Limitations
The city will endeavor to make every reasonable effort to respond in the event of an
emergency or disaster. However, city resources and systems may be overwhelmed. The
responsibilities and tenets outlined in the Plan will be fulfilled only if the situation,
information exchange, extent of actual agency capabilities, and resources are available at
the time.
There is no guarantee implied by the Plan that a perfect response to emergency or
disaster incidents will be practical or possible.

II Planning Assumptions & Considerations

The City of Arlington Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan is based on the
planning assumptions and considerations presented in this section.
The City of Arlington is located in northern Snohomish County 20.2 miles north of
Everett (County Seat) and 47.8 miles north of Seattle. It is also 72.2 miles south of the
USA Canada border at Blaine, WA.
The City limits cover an area of approximately 8.2 miles, and is roughly bounded by the
Stillaguamish River and its flood plain on the north-northwest; I-5 on the west; 164th
Street NE to 67th Avenue, 172nd Street on the south; and by SR-9 and the South Fork
Stillaguamish flood plain on the east. The City of Marysville lies to the south, and the
Tulalip Indian Reservation to the southwest. 28.2 miles east up the Stillaguamish Valley
is the City of Darrington.
The City and the immediate area is primarily suburban and rural residential with
supporting retail and commercial enterprises. Light industrial and manufacturing
business are located in the central portions of the city around the city-owned Arlington
Airport.
The city experienced continued growth the last twenty years, increasing population by
over 450% since 1980. Arlington’s current population is about 18,000 and is expected
to double by 2025.
   □ No guarantee is implied by this plan. Because City assets and systems may be
     damaged, destroyed, or overwhelmed during an emergency, the City of Arlington
     can only endeavor to make reasonable efforts to respond based on the situation
     and the information and resources available at the time.


January 2010                                                                      Page 15
           City of Arlington - Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan

  □ A fundamental principle of emergency management is that all disasters are
    managed locally. Although state and federal resources may be available, it is
    essential for the City to be prepared to carry out disaster response and short-
    term actions on an independent basis.

  □ Each household within the City of Arlington is encouraged to develop a family
    disaster plan and to maintain the essential supplies to be self-sufficient for five to
    seven days. The Fire Department Emergency Management Division will make

       o Alert emergency forces of a disaster or impending disaster.
       o Provide information relay to emergency forces.
       o Provide situational awareness via 800 mhz.
       o Provide Warning to the Public as requested by the Incident Commander.

3.3 Nongovernmental and Volunteer Organizations
Nongovernmental and volunteer organizations collaborate with first responders,
governments at all levels, and other agencies and organizations providing relief services
to sustain life, reduce physical and emotional distress, and promote recovery of disaster
victims when assistance is not available from other sources.
Some participants of the Arlington Community Disaster Task Force have entered into
agreements with the City of Arlington as documented in the form of ―Memorandums of
Understanding‖ listed in MOU Annex. The Arlington Community Disaster Task Force may:
              Provide emergency food and water to the incident emergency/disaster
               workers.
              Provide mass care for disaster victims including shelter and food.
              Provide non-emergent health and mental health services.
              Coordinate ―un-met needs‖ recovery assistance for disaster victims.
              Provide facilities, equipment and/ or personnel during the incident.
              Provide expendable and non-expendable material.

3.4 Private Sector
The city coordinates with the private sector to effectively share information, form
courses of action, and incorporate available resources to prevent, prepare for, respond
to, and recover from Incidents.
Roles: The roles, responsibilities, and participation of the private sector during incidents
vary based on the nature of the organization and the type and impact of the incident.
The roles of private-sector organizations are summarized below.

                     private-sector organizations that are significant to local,
                     regional, and national economic recovery from the incident.
                     Examples of privately owned infrastructure include
                     transportation, telecommunications, private utilities, financial

                   specialized teams, equipment, and advanced technologies—
                   through local public-private emergency plans, mutual aid
                   agreements, or incident specific requests from government
                   and private-sector-volunteered initiatives.
Regulated and/or   Owners/operators of certain regulated facilities or hazardous

Organization       organizations and activities.
Member


Responsibilities: Private-sector organizations support the Comprehensive Emergency
Management Plan (voluntarily or to comply with applicable laws and regulations) by
sharing information with the government, identifying risks, performing vulnerability
assessments, developing emergency response and business continuity plans,
enhancing their overall readiness, implementing appropriate prevention and protection
programs, and donating or otherwise providing goods and services through contractual
arrangement or government purchases to assist in response to and recovery from an
incident. Certain organizations are required by existing law and regulation to bear the
cost of planning and response to incidents, regardless of cause. In the case of an
Incident, these private-sector organizations are expected to mobilize and employ the
resources necessary and available in accordance with their plans to address the
consequences of incidents at their own facilities or incidents for which they are
otherwise responsible.
Response Resources: Unless the response role is inherently governmental (e.g., fire,
law enforcement, etc.), private-sector organizations are encouraged to develop and
maintain capabilities to respond to and manage a complete spectrum of incidents and
emergencies. The city maintains ongoing interaction with the critical infrastructure and
key resources industries to provide coordination for prevention, preparedness,
response, and recovery activities. When practical, or when required under law, private-
sector representatives should be included in planning and exercises. The government
may, in some cases, direct private-sector response resources when they have
contractual relationships, using government funds.
Functional Coordination: The primary department for each Emergency Support
Function maintains working relations with its associated private-sector counterparts.




January 2010                                                                     Page 30
            City of Arlington - Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan


3.5 Citizen Involvement/Unaffiliated Volunteers (Disaster Task Force)
Strong partnerships with citizen groups and organizations provide support for incident
management prevention, preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation.
The U.S. Citizen Corps brings these groups together and focuses efforts of individuals
through education, training, and volunteer service to help make communities safer,
stronger, and better prepared to address the threats of terrorism, crime, public health
issues, and disasters of all kinds.
The City of Arlington has implemented the following Citizen Corps groups; Community
Emergency Response Teams (CERTs), Medical Reserve Corps, Neighborhood Watch,
Map Your Neighborhood, and Volunteers in Police Service.
Citizen Corps Affiliate Programs expand the resources and materials available to states
and local communities through partnerships with programs and organizations that offer
resources for public education, outreach, and training; represent volunteers interested in
helping to make their communities safer; or offer volunteer service opportunities to
support first responders, disaster relief activities, and community safety efforts.
Other programs unaffiliated with Citizen Corps such as the Arlington Disaster Task
Force also provide organized citizen involvement opportunities in support of local
response to major disasters and emergencies.
Steps will be taken to appropriately register all emergency/disaster volunteers either
spontaneous or as part of an affiliated group through the WA State Emergency Worker
Program.

3.6 Emergency Support Functions
The Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan applies a functional approach that
groups the capabilities of city departments and outside agencies into Emergency
Support Functions to provide the planning, support, resources, program implementation,
and emergency services that are most likely to be needed during Incidents. The city
response to actual or potential Incidents is typically provided through the full or partial
activation of the Incident Command System and Emergency Support Function
structure(s) as necessary. The Emergency Support Functions serve as the coordination
mechanism to provide assistance to the Incident Commander. The Emergency Support
Functions provide staffing for the City of Arlington Emergency Operations Center
(EOC), and Incident Command Post as required by the situation at hand.
Note that not all Incidents result in the activation of Emergency Support Functions. It is
possible that an incident can be adequately addressed through activation of certain
Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan elements (e.g., Arlington Emergency
Operations Plan) without the activation of Emergency Support Functions. Similarly,
operational security considerations may dictate that activation of Comprehensive
Emergency Management Plan elements be kept to a minimum, particularly in the
context of certain terrorism prevention activities.




January 2010                                                                       Page 31
            City of Arlington - Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan


IV Concept of Operations
4.1 General
This section describes the coordinating structures, processes, and protocols employed
to manage Incidents. These coordinating structures and processes are designed to
enable execution of the responsibilities of the Mayor through the appropriate
departments and to integrate city, county, state, federal, Non Governmental
Organizations (NGO), and private-sector efforts into a comprehensive approach to
emergency management.

A basic premise of the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan is that incidents
are generally handled at the lowest jurisdictional level possible. Police, fire, public health
and medical, emergency management, and other personnel are responsible for incident
management at the local level. In the vast majority of incidents, local resources and
mutual aid normally provide the first line of emergency response and incident
management support.
When an incident or potential incident is of such severity, magnitude, and/or complexity
that local resources are or will be overwhelmed, the mayor may declare an emergency
and request resources from the County and State.

4.2 Overall Coordination
The Mayor leads the city in responding effectively and ensuring the necessary
resources are applied quickly and efficiently to all Incidents. As necessary, the
Emergency Management Coordinator convenes interdepartmental meetings to
coordinate policy and/or procedure issues.

During actual or potential Incidents, the overall coordination of emergency management
activities is executed through the Emergency Management Coordinator or Mayor’s
designee. Other departments and personnel carry out their emergency management
and incident response authorities and responsibilities within this coordinating
framework.

4.3 Concurrent Implementation of Other Plans
The Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan is the core plan for managing
incidents and details the coordinating structures and processes used during Incidents.
Other supplemental department and interagency plans provide details on authorities,
response protocols, and technical guidance for responding to and managing specific
contingency situations (such as hazardous materials spills, floods, etc.).

In many cases, departments manage localized incidents under these plans using their
own authorities without the need for coordination by Emergency Management. In the
context of Incidents, these supplemental agency or interagency plans may be
implemented concurrently with the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan, but
are subordinated to the overarching core coordinating structures, processes, and

January 2010                                                                         Page 32
            City of Arlington - Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan

protocols detailed in the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan. In this case,
the department or agency with primary responsibility for execution of the supplemental
agency or interagency plan is also responsible for ensuring that all ongoing activities
conform to the processes and protocols prescribed in the Comprehensive Emergency
Management Plan. This helps enable effective and coordinated emergency
management operations, consistent with individual department and agency authorities
and responsibilities.

4.4 Operational Concepts
Managing ―routine‖ emergencies is the function of certain municipal agencies such as
the Fire and Police Departments. Management of a major emergency or disaster will
require an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) activation to coordinate overall
response.


A major emergency or disaster exists when a situation exceeds the everyday
capabilities of responding agencies or requires coordination between agencies. Some
elements that can be found in a major emergencies or disaster include:
              A significant number of casualties
              Severe or widespread property damage
              Non-routine multi-agency response
              Shortage of needed resources
              Extended interruption of vital services such as transportation or utilities
              Evacuations requiring sheltering
              Extensive news media coverage

4.4.1 Emergency Management
Emergency Management coordinates emergency preparedness activities for the City.
Emergency Management accomplishes this task by acting as a facilitator to ensure the
City has the appropriate means for command, control, and communications for
agencies that respond to emergencies threatening life or property. Emergency
Management in conjunction with Fire and/or Police (incident dependant) may act as
lead in a complex citywide event or as an operational support, providing logistical,
technical, or advisory support to the Incident Commander in the EOC and/or field.

4.4.2 Emergency Management and the Mayor
The mayor bears ultimate responsibility for the safety and welfare of persons and
property within the City and may delegate emergency responsibilities to appropriate
agencies and officials as allowed by law.

4.4.3 Emergency Declarations
The mayor may declare a civil emergency to expedite access to the resources needed
for incident response. If the required response exceeds local capabilities, the mayor

January 2010                                                                    Page 33
            City of Arlington - Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan

may ask for county and state assistance and request a gubernatorial disaster
declaration. The governor may request federal aid when it appears that the combined
resources of local and state agencies will be inadequate. If state or federal resources
are made available to the City, they will be under the operational control of the mayor or
mayor’s designee. Sample Declarations and Proclamation Requests are located in
CEMP Annex 1.

4.4.4 Succession of Mayor’s Powers
Temporary Absence – During the temporary absence or incapacity of the mayor, the
Mayor Pro Tem will be acting mayor and will assume the powers and duties of the
mayor including those for emergencies and veto power.


In the absence of both the Mayor and Mayor Pro Tem, the council member with the
longest tenure will assume the office of acting mayor. If more than one council member
has the same total period of tenure in office the council member who received the
largest number of votes at the last election will be acting mayor.

Vacancy – When a mayoral vacancy occurs, the Mayor Pro Tem will serve as the acting
mayor with all powers and duties of the mayor, including emergency powers, until a
mayoral successor is elected. A mayoral vacancy arises when one or more of the
following occurs:
           o Resignation
           o Death
           o Judicial determination of incompetence
           o Conviction of a felony
           o Removal from office for breach of public trust

If the Mayor Pro Tem is unable to serve as acting mayor, the council member with the
longest tenure will assume the office of acting mayor. If more than one council member
has the same total period of tenure in office the council member who received the
largest number of votes at the last election will be acting mayor.

(RCW’s 35A.12.065, 42.12.010, 42.12.070)

4.4.5 Continuity of Government
A large incident could result in the death or injury of key government officials, city
workers, destruction of established seats of government, and damage to public records
that are essential to continued operations of government. Throughout an emergency,
the City must continue to function as a government entity so that it may provide
continuity of effective leadership, direction of emergency operations, and management
of recovery operations.

By mid 2010, the City of Arlington will complete its comprehensive Continuity of
Government Plan to ensure that essential services will be continued in a disaster.

January 2010                                                                     Page 34
            City of Arlington - Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan


4.4.6 Delivery of Essential Services
Essential functions are those that deliver life and safety services to the City and
maintain the economic well-being of the community. Upon the completion of the city
Continuity of Government Plan, all departments will have identified and will annually
update their essential functions, the personnel required to perform those functions, and
the lines of succession for managerial or specialized staff.

4.5 Emergency Operations Center (EOC)
The EOC is located at Arlington City Council Chambers 238 North Olympic Avenue,
Arlington WA. Its role during an emergency or threat is to coordinate command
decisions, resources and public information on a strategic level. The EOC’s role does
not eliminate the requirements that responding agencies have for tactical level
coordination of labor and resources. The EOC facilitates the coordination of multiple
agencies and departments into a comprehensive strategy of incident response. During
a large-scale emergency, the EOC may become the temporary seat of city government.

The Main Comprehensive Goals of the EOC are:
     Save and protect the greatest number of people at risk
     Ensure the safety of first responders and City employees
     Save and protect as many residential, business and industrial properties as
     possible
     Save and protect as much vital infrastructure as possible
     Restrain the spread of environmental damage
     Minimize human suffering and economic interruptions
     Facilitate the recovery of Arlington to get ―back to normal as quickly as possible‖

4.5.1 Staffing the Emergency Operations Center
During normal day to day operations the EOC is not staffed but is maintained by the city
emergency management coordinator. Once activated, the EOC will be staffed by
multiple city employees and community partners utilizing the Incident Command
System. The emergency management coordinator will facilitate training in the incident
Command System and the functions required to perform an EOC role. EOC teams will
work together for an operational period of 8-12 hours as defined by the EOC Incident
Commander. City employees working in the activated EOC will not perform their
regular job functions during an emergency.




January 2010                                                                     Page 35
           City of Arlington - Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan


4.5.2 Activating the Emergency Operations Center
The EOC will be activated to support response or recovery operations when the scope
or scale of an emergency surpasses the capacity to be managed from a field Incident
Command post. Persons authorized to activate the EOC are the following:

             Mayor
             City Administrator
             Fire Chief
             Police Chief
             Public Works Director
             Field Incident Commander
             Emergency Management Coordinator

4.5.3 Contingency Emergency Operations Centers
In the event that the primary EOC becomes damaged or otherwise unavailable during
an emergency, the EOC may be located at 6231 188th Street, Arlington WA (Arlington
Fire Dept. Station 47) (May change to Arlington Airport Conference room).

EOC facilities located outside of the Arlington area include Snohomish County
Department of Emergency Management (SCDEM) at 3509 109th Street, Everett WA.

Arlington as a paying partner of SCDEM also has access to a mobile command and
control vehicle stationed at 1305 Grove Street, Marysville (Station 61). SCDEM can
also provide a ―mobile EOC‖ set up at the request of the Mayor to the County Executive.

The above sites if necessary may operate as a contingency EOC or in coordination with
Arlington EOC.

V Emergency Management Phases

This section describes emergency management actions ranging from initial threat
notification to early coordination efforts to assess and disrupt the threat, to preparatory
activation of the ESF structure, to deployment of resources in support of incident
response and recovery operations. These actions do not necessarily occur in sequential
order; many may be undertaken concurrently in response to single or multiple threats or
incidents.

5.0 Time Phases of Disaster Operations
      Mitigation and Preparedness
       Before a disaster strikes– city, county, and other government agencies shall take
       steps to reduce the disaster effects.
       These steps shall include, but not be limited to:

          o Conducting continuous planning studies of potential disaster elements in the
            city and developing a comprehensive emergency management program.
          o Reviewing the disaster readiness capabilities and upgrading procedures in
            keeping with changing emergency management and response technology.
          o Encouraging and maintaining interagency cooperation and coordination of
            readiness planning.
          o Maintaining vehicles, equipment, and facilities in a readiness condition.
          o Conducting programs of public information and education on disaster
            preparedness and personal survival.
          o Reviewing and improving response capabilities by conducting training,
            drills, and exercises.
      Response - Increased Readiness Period
       If a disaster is imminent all agencies with emergency responsibilities shall:
            o Comply with established checklists and review response status and
               procedures.
            o Notify key staff according to suggested operating guidelines.
            o Notify the appropriate organizations.
            o Prepare and update necessary information for release to the public.
            o Activate, as appropriate, the Emergency Operations Center (EOC).
            o Initiate mitigation and preparedness programs to reduce the effects of the
               disaster.
            o Initiate all record keeping, data collection, and control measures as needed.
      Response - Emergency Period
       When a disaster strikes all agencies with emergency responsibilities shall:
         o Initiate and conduct disaster response operations in accordance with
            established suggested operating guidelines.
         o Coordinate their response with all involved agencies and jurisdictions
            through the city’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC).
         o Keep the public and government officials advised of the actions taken.

January 2010                                                                       Page 38
           City of Arlington - Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan

         o Assess and evaluate the effectiveness of emergency response efforts and
           establish priorities in the application of resources.
     Recovery Phase
      After the threat to life and property has passed, those agencies involved in the
      response shall:
          o Obtain detailed damage assessment information.
          o Coordinate the application of resources to meet the long-term needs of the
              city with the Emergency Operations Center (EOC).
          o Identify deficiencies in response, conduct after action debriefings, and
              implement actions for improvement.

VI City of Arlington Hazard Vulnerability
The City of Arlington is vulnerable to the damaging effects of certain hazards, which can
be categorized into three basic types:
    Natural hazards are expected or uncontrollable events caused by nature. In
      some cases, they can be human triggered, such as a human-triggered
      avalanche.
       Technological hazards are generally caused by human error or omission. They
        may also be triggered by a natural hazard, such as a weather-related power
        failure.
       Human/societal hazards are the result of deliberate human acts.
A summary of the major hazards is provided in Figure 2. The terms are defined as
follows:

Probability
Highly likely—Near 100% probability in the next year.

Likely—Between 10% and 90% probability in the next year, or at least one chance in the next
10 years.

Possible—Between 1% and 10% probability in the next year, or at least one chance in the next
25 years.

Unlikely—Less than 1% probability in the next 10 years.

Severity
Catastrophic—Multiple deaths; shutdown of affected critical facilities for 1 month or more; more
than 50% of effected property severely damaged.

Critical—Injuries or illness resulting in permanent disability; shutdown of affected critical facilities
for at least 2 weeks; 25% to 50% of effected property severely damaged.

Limited—Temporary injuries; shutdown of affected critical facilities for 1-2 weeks; 10% to 25%
of effected property severely damaged.

Negligible—Injuries treatable with first aid; shutdown of affected critical facilities for 24 hours or
less; less than 10% of effected property severely damaged.

Magnitude
Scale and extent of the geographic area affected-

Limited- Local geographical area; generally neighborhood blocks to city wide.

Widespread- Impacts more than local city; could be multiple areas; or county to state wide.

             City of Arlington - Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan


Warning Time
None/minimal – Mechanisms are not in place to be able to predict hazard will occur.

Time/hours – Can be predicted that the incident will more than likely take place within a certain
amount of time. Monitored by public safety officials.

Risk Priority
Level of priority the hazard should be planned for. Low to High

            City of Arlington - Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan


VII Ongoing Plan Management and Maintenance
7.1 Coordination
The City of Arlington uses the ―preparedness organization‖ concept described in the
National Incident Management System for the ongoing management and maintenance
of the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan. These organizations typically
include all agencies with a role in emergency management and provide a forum for
coordination of policy, planning, training, equipping, and other preparedness
requirements.

7.2 Plan Maintenance
The Emergency Management Coordinator in close coordination with the Mayor is the
agent for Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan management and maintenance.
The Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan will be updated periodically as
required to incorporate new Presidential directives, legislative changes, and procedural
changes based on lessons learned from exercises and actual events. This section
establishes procedures for interim changes and full updates of the Comprehensive
Emergency Management Plan.

7.2.1 Types of Changes
Changes include additions of new or supplementary material or deletions. No proposed
change should contradict or override authorities or other plans contained in statute or
regulation.

7.2.2 Coordination and Approval
Any department or individual may propose a change to the plan. The Emergency
Management Coordinator is responsible for coordinating all proposed modifications of the
Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan with stakeholders. The Emergency
Management Coordinator will coordinate review and approve proposed modifications
through the Mayor and City Council.

7.3 Notice of Change
After coordination has been accomplished, including the necessary approval supporting
the final change language, the Emergency Management Coordinator will issue an official
Notice of Change.

The notice will specify the date, number, subject, purpose, background, and action
required, and provide the change language on one or more numbered and dated insert
pages that will replace the outdated pages in the Comprehensive Emergency
Management Plan. Once published, the modifications will be considered part of the
Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan for operational purposes pending a formal

            City of Arlington - Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan

revision and reissuance of the entire document. Interim changes can be further modified or
updated using the above process.

7.4 Distribution
The Emergency Management Coordinator will distribute Notices of Change to all plan
holders.

7.5 Reissuance of the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan
Working toward continuous improvement, the Emergency Management Coordinator is
responsible for coordinating full reviews and updates of the Comprehensive Emergency
Management Plan every two years, or more frequently if deemed necessary. The review
and update will consider lessons learned and best practices identified during exercises
and responses to actual events, and incorporate new information technologies.

7.6 The Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan and City of
Arlington Preparedness
The Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan provides a key aspect of city
compliance with various statutes and regulations regarding preparedness.

Preparedness tasks related to the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan are
summarized below:
  Develop measures to ensure the safety and reduce the risk to incident personnel
   and the public.
  Develop Emergency Operations Plan Checklists for City ―operations‖.
  Develop suggested operating guidelines for departmental emergency operations.
  Provide long-range mitigation planning.

EMERGENCY SUPPORT FUNCTION (ESF) -
INTRODUCTION

The Federal government and many state and local governments, including The City of
Arlington, organize much of their resources and capabilities under 15 Emergency
Support Functions (ESF’s). ESF’s align categories of resources and provide strategic
objectives for their use.
During a response, ESF’s are a critical mechanism to coordinate functional capabilities
and resources provided by federal, state and local departments and agencies, along with
certain private sector and non-governmental organizations. ESF’s may be selectively
activated for any incident where an Emergency has been declared and/or the City of
Arlington Emergency Operations Center has been activated. Not all incidents result in
activation of ESF’s.
ESF’s may be activated to support EOC, city, and/or field activities. The Incident
Command System (ICS) provides for the flexibility to assign ESF’s and other stakeholder
resources according to their capabilities, tasking, and requirements to augment and
support the other sections of the City of Arlington Emergency Operations Center
(EOC)/Regional Response Coordination Center or National Response Coordination
Center in order to respond to incidents in a more collaborative and cross-cutting manner.
While ESF’s are typically assigned to a specific sections at the City of Arlington
Emergency Operations Center for management purposes, resources may be assigned
anywhere in the Unified Command structure. Regardless of the sections in which the
ESF may reside, that entity works in conjunction with other EOC sections to ensure that
appropriate planning and execution of missions occur. For example, if the City of
Arlington must perform a mass evacuation, the City of Arlington EOC would request
personnel from ESF #1 (Transportation), ESF #6 (Mass Care, Emergency Assistance,
Housing, and Human Services), ESF #8 (Public Health and Medical Services). These
would then be integrated into a single branch or group within the operations section to
ensure effective coordination of evacuation services.

                       6. Bus communication systems can be used to gather damage
                          assessment and situation information
III.   Air transportation resources will be coordinated by the Emergency Operations Center.
              A. The Arlington Airport may be used to provide an air support role upon
                 request of the Incident Commander through the Emergency Operations
                 Center for:
                       1. Evacuation of injured public to other regional medical centers
                       2. Arrival point and staging area for emergency supplies and critical
                          equipment (as needed)
                       3. Arrival and Departure point for visiting state or federal officials
              B. Snohomish County Search and Rescue helicopters will be used for
                 emergency rescue and critical equipment and supplies transportation.

Airport (KAWO)


Arlington Airport (KAWO) is located South West of downtown Arlington and East of
Smokey Point. To the South the airport skirts 172nd NE and to the North 204th St. NE. The
airport is uncontrolled except during the North West EAA Fly-in, when the FAA sets up a
mobile Air Traffic Control Tower to direct inbound and outbound air traffic. This event
normally occurs the 2nd week of July.


The airport is home to a large variety of aircraft including home-builds, ultra-lights, gliders,
general aviation aircraft including low and high fixed wing, helicopters, turbo-prop and small
jet engine aircraft. Also included in this mix are vintage aircraft, some of which do not have
communication capability as well as a number of decommissioned military jets such as
Alpha Jets operated by ABBATARE INC. at 17617 49TH PL NE HANGAR C. Arlington
Airport is home to Life Flight medical evacuation helicopters as well as many other aviation
related businesses.


Runway 16/34 is Asphalt and is 5333’ x 100’. This runway is capable of single wheel
aircraft up to 114,000, dual wheel up to 150,000lbs and dual tandem up to 270,000lbs. For
2007, the airport estimates they had 135,000 of each takeoffs and landings.


The Federal Government may take the airport back if the need is justified according to the
airport deed.


Currently, the airport has two Memorandum of Understanding with outside entities. These
MOU’s are with PEMCO insurance of Seattle and School Employees Credit Union of
Washington, for use of the Fly-In headquarters building area. If an emergency causes
PEMCO and School Employees Credit Union of Washington to relocate their operations
from Seattle, during the week of the NW-EAA Fly-in, they will utilize the parking lot at the
airport office.


Highway


Washington State Highway 9 is a two lane highway running north and south with good
access to the city. 172nd St. NE intersects Highway 9 at the south leading to Interstate 5 at

Appendix 3 to ESF 2 - Warning

I.     PURPOSE
       To provide rapid warning to key officials and the public in the event of an impending
       or occurring emergency. The existing warning systems include the Emergency
       Alert System, SNOPAC, NOAA Weather Radio, My State USA Warning System.
II.    OPERATIONAL CONCEPTS
       A.     Telecommunications when available is the primary method of notification for
              elected officials, department directors and their designees. Pagers will also
              be used when available.
       B.     The basic objectives of the warning system are:
              1.      To provide an organized method to disseminate information
                      essential for the protection of life and to mitigate property damage;
              2.      To provide for alternative communications and warning systems in
                      the event of failure or reduced effectiveness of existing systems
                      along with alternative warning efforts by responding agencies such
                      as door-to-door warning, the use of public address systems and
                      vehicle sirens.
       C.     The Emergency Alert System (EAS) is a communications and warning tool
              that operates through designated radio and television stations. It is intended
              to provide local officials with the means to rapidly disseminate reliable
              information and warning in the event of an emergency.
       D.     The Emergency Alert System is managed and activated by the Snohomish
              County Department of Emergency Management Director or his/her
              designee. SNOPAC is designated as the primary Emergency Alert System
              site with Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management as the
              alternate. All Emergency Alert System messages will be coordinated
              through the Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management
              Emergency Operations Center.
       E.     My State USA is a computer system that currently utilizes landlines to
              communicate directly to specific geographical areas by providing a recorded
              message regarding situations affecting the geographic area chosen by
              emergency responders. The system is activated by Snohomish County
              Department of Emergency Management and/or SNOPAC. It is anticipated
              this technology will also be able to send messages to cell phones within the
              specific geographic area within the next couple of years also.
III.   RESPONSIBILITIES
       A. Incident commander request EAS activation through SNOPAC.
       B. SNOPAC is the primary warning point for fire and law enforcement.

                     EMERGENCY RESPONSE
                    MUTUAL AID AGREEMENT

WHEREAS, the purpose of this pre-disaster agreement between the agencies is to
provide for immediate assistance to protect life and property;

WHEREAS, this Agreement is authorized under State of Washington, RCW's 35 (City),
36 (County), 38.52 (Emergency Management), 39.34 (Interlocal Agreement) and 47
(Public Highway Transportation (DOT)); which is activated only in the event of a

WHEREAS, the agency asking for assistance from any signatory agency will herein be
referred to as the Requesting Agency;

WHEREAS, the signatory agency agreeing to assist another signatory agency asking for
assistance will herein be referred to as the Responding Agency;

WHEREAS, it is necessary and desirable that this Agreement be executed for the
exchange of mutual aid; with the intent to supplement not supplant agency personnel.

NOW, THEREFORE, it is hereby agreed by each and all of the parties signatory to the
Agreement as follows:

1. Each agency signatory to this Agreement agrees to furnish, upon its sole discretion,
those resources and services it deems to be available to each other signatory agency
hereto as necessary to assist in the prevention, response, recovery and mitigation of
proclaimed emergencies/disasters.

2. It is hereby understood that this Agreement shall not supplant pre-existing mutual aid
agreements nor deny the right of any agency hereto to negotiate other mutual aid
agreements.

3. The Responding Agency shall assist in only those situations for which it has
determined it has qualified personnel, appropriate equipment and necessary materials.
Resources of the Responding Agency that are made available to the Requesting Agency
shall, whenever possible, remain under the control and direction of the Responding
Agency. The Requesting Agency shall coordinate the activities and resources of all

omissions, whether negligent, willful, or reckless, of its own officers, employees, agency
or any other person arising out of or in connection with any acts or activities authorized
by this agreement, and will pay all judgments, if any, rendered. This obligation shall not
include such claims, costs, damages or other expenses which may be caused by the sole

                        PROCEDURES TO CONSIDER

                    Public Works Emergency Mutual Aid Agreement
Below are SUGGESTED steps for your agency to follow when using the Public Works
Emergency Response Mutual Aid Agreement. The participants to the agreement are listed
by agency, with a contact person, their phone number and an emergency 24-hour phone

Responding Agency Steps to Follow
When your agency is responding to a request for assistance:

City of Arlington                     Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan
                    REQUESTING AGENCY CHECKLIST

       Ensure that a real need exists. The Public Works Emergency Response Mutual
             Aid Agreement is only to be used to support resources already reasonably
             committed.
              What can the Responding Agency help you repair or service? What is the
             nature of the emergency?
             Identify what type of equipment, material and skilled employees are
             needed.
             How long may they be needed? Will Responding Agency employees work
             independently or with one of your supervisors?
             Where will Responding Agency employees eat, sleep and shower? Do
             you need to make contact with the Red Cross for meals? What
             facilities/hotels are available for Responding Agency employees?
             Has an arrangement for refueling and repair of equipment been made?
             Identify a staging area. Where will Responding Agency employees meet
             your Agency supervisor(s) to be briefed and assigned work? Responding
             Agency employees will need names of your supervisor(s), phone numbers
             and locations and times to meet and report.

Who Can Help?

              Review list of Public Works Emergency Response Mutual Aid agencies
              and locate an agency not affected by the emergency.
              Contact your local Office of Emergency Management, if necessary.
              Call the agency directly. Send written request as soon as possible.
                 o Identify yourself and your agency.
                 o Fill out a MUTUAL AID INFORMATION (see page 3) form.
                 o State the nature of the problem.
                 o State your needs - personnel, equipment, resources, etc. Length of
                      time they will be needed?
                 o Advise the Responding Agency on weather and road conditions.
                 o How soon is aid needed? Is the work time sensitive?
                 o Advise the Responding Agency where, when and to whom they are
                      to report?
                 o Identify facilities that are available to Responding Agency (shelter,
                      food, etc.)
                    o Briefing
              Meet with your agency's union reps or supervisors to discuss how staff
              will be used.
              Identify a staff person to work directly with your employees to handle and
              address questions. Provide local maps of the area with information such as
              eating and sleeping sites.
              Provide system maps and discuss how to use them.
              Review standards for the type of work being requested.
              Establish a communications plan.

   EMERGENCY SUPPORT FUNCTION-ESF 4
   FIRE SERVICE
 I.    PURPOSE
   To provide an organizational framework utilizing the Incident Command System that will
   effectively utilize and coordinate available fire fighting and fire emergency medical
   services apparatus and personnel when the size and nature of the emergency, disaster
   or catastrophic event exceeds local capabilities.
II.    OPERATIONAL CONCEPTS
       A. Normal emergency operations are handled with resources of the responding fire
          agency that includes local mutual aid.
       B. When an emergency goes beyond local mutual aid, task force/strike team
          responses from zones within Snohomish County may be utilized or task force/strike
          team responses from other counties may be utilized. [Snohomish County
          Department of Emergency Management Emergency Operations Center (EOC) may
          be advised at this time to coordinate additional logistical support.]
       C. When the emergency exceeds the regional response effort, the Washington State
          Fire Mobilization Plan shall be utilized to obtain additional resources.
       D. The City of Arlington Emergency Operations Center is opened for the purpose of
          providing technical and logistic assistance in coordinating resources under a unified
          command when prioritization becomes necessary.
       E. In the event of a catastrophic event the City of Arlington may initially find itself
          operating independently and self reliant for over 72 hours.
       F. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and United States Forest Service (USFS)
          are responsible for wild-land fires and individual fire districts may have separate
          working agreements with Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
       F. Arlington Fire Department will provide a representative to the City of Arlington
          Emergency Operations Center.
       G. Responsibilities for emergency medical services are defined in ESF-8.
III.   RESPONSIBILITIES
       A. City of Arlington Emergency Operations Center:
           1. Serves as liaison between city service and the state for requesting additional
              resources.
                   a. Provide mission number for regional response.
                   b. Serve as contact for state mobilization.
           2. Provide training to fire response personnel as appropriate.
       B. Arlington Fire Department:
           1. Provide for suppression and control of fires within the city limits.

deaths exceeding the normal response capability of an emergency medical services
organization. A major earthquake, hazardous materials release, or acts of terrorism are
examples of emergencies where a mass casualty incident might occur.
Operational concepts
A. Direction and control of emergency medical functions at hospitals remain the
   responsibility of each facility's management and staff during a mass casualty
   incident.
B. The City of Arlington will make a reasonable effort to triage known family members to
   the same hospital.
C. The City of Arlington may activate a congregate care facility to deliver non-critical
   mass medical care to ease congestion at area hospitals. Hospitals may also
   establish additional areas to deliver non-critical mass medical care and triage.
D. During a mass casualty incident, qualified medical providers, non-acute care
   hospitals, outpatient clinics and other medical facilities should be prepared to treat
   minor injuries and perform triage when necessary.
E. If normal communications are disrupted during a disaster, medical personnel are
   encouraged to report to the hospital where they practice for possible reassignment.
F. The City of Arlington Airport will direct FAA mass casualty protocols during a mass
   casualty incident caused by aircraft crash.
G. The Washington State Troopers will augment local search and rescue efforts to
   support a mass casualty incident.
H. The State Medical Examiner’s Office should be contacted as soon as practicable
   when a mass casualty incident has been identified.
I.   A Hospital Emergency Alert Response Network (HEARNet) will be established
     between emergency medical responders and area hospital. Efforts to include
     hospitals outside the local area will be made as necessary and as technological
     capabilities allow.
J. Responders at a hazardous materials incident and medical facilities receiving victims
   from a hazardous materials site will ensure they fully understand the incident
   commander’s situational assessment and take full precautions to protect themselves.
K. During a mass casualty incident caused by a chemical, biological, radiological, or
   nuclear event, the City of Arlington may provide security at hospital emergency
   rooms to prevent further contamination.
L. Initial victim decontamination must be performed in the field to minimize further
   contamination as not all hospitals may have adequate decontamination facilities.

                                       Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan
M. The EOC in coordination with area hospitals will request a Disaster Medical
   Assistance Team immediately upon awareness that an incident may overload area
   hospitals.
N. The City of Arlington will coordinate a locally based response to support a mass
   casualty incident in a neighboring community.

Appendix 2 to ESF 8 – Mass Fatality

Mass Fatality
A mass fatality incident is any situation where the number of fatalities exceeds the ability
of local resources to manage the bodies. The primary functions of a mass fatality
response are body recovery, morgue operations, and assisting the decedents’ family
members and loved ones. Although the morgue capacity within the City of Arlington is
approximately 100 bodies, an incident with 25 fatalities would likely overwhelm local
capabilities.
A mass fatality incident may be caused by natural or manmade disaster including airline
crash, infectious disease outbreak, structural collapse, avalanche, warfare, and act of
terrorism.
OPERATIONAL CONCEPTS
O. As set forth by Washington state law, responsibility for collection, identification,
   storage, and dispatch of bodies lies with the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s
   Office (SCMEO). The City of Arlington will contact the SCMEO as soon as
   practicable when a mass fatality incident has been identified and will provide
   resource support for the SCMEO’s actions as requested and within its capabilities.
P. In an incident where the SCMEO is unable to respond, it may delegate certain duties
   to local law enforcement or other personnel.
Q. The Ted Stevens Arlington International Airport will direct FAA mass fatality protocols
   during a mass fatality incident caused by aircraft crash.
R. The Federal Bureau of Investigation may assume victim identification responsibilities
   in incidents involving interstate commercial carriers, hostage situations, acts of
   terrorism or other incidents that include a law enforcement component.
S. The City of Arlington in coordination with SCMEO will submit a request to the state
   for disaster mortuary capability immediately upon awareness that an incident may
   overload area local mortuary capabilities.


Recovery Activities


T. Recovery activities should occur only after all known survivors of the incident are
   reasonably moved to safety.
U. The City of Arlington will ensure that the welfare and mental health needs of staff
   working to respond to a mass fatality incident are attended to and will be balanced
   with social pressures to quickly complete mortuary procedures and repatriate victims.
V. A mass fatality site occurring from any incident other than a natural disaster should
   be treated as a crime scene until the incident commander in consultation with the
   SCMEO directs otherwise.
W. The City of Arlington will establish a Joint Information Center (JIC) to ensure
   accurate and expedient dissemination of information. All agencies involved in
   incident response should coordinate public information activities through the JIC.
X. Bodies will not be moved from the incident site without approval from the SCMEO.


Emergency Safety Function                                                           Page 76
                                        Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan
Y. In most situations, the presence of dead bodies is not considered a significant public
   health risk. However, because of the possibility of responder contact with bodily
   fluids a mass fatality site will be treated as a biohazard site until the incident
   commander directs otherwise. Responders having direct contact with bodies will take
   universal precautions to protect themselves from contact with bodily fluids.
Z. Bodies will not be stacked on top of one another in any storage situation, except in
   extreme situations when it is necessary to use refrigeration to preserve the bodies
   and space is limited or during transportation.
AA. Every attempt should be made to identify the bodies at the site where they are
   found regardless of the number of dead. Tags should be attached to the bodies that
   provide the name, if known, and the approximate age, sex, and location of the body.
BB.           Examination of bodies will not be conducted at the incident site with the
   exception of checking pockets of victims’ clothing to look for identification documents
   when directed by the incident commander.
CC.         If body bags are not available for the removal of remains, a durable
   impermeable substitute may be used.
DD.            The City of Arlington will establish a resource staging area at or near the
   incident site to control the incident response resources.
EE.The City of Arlington will establish a body staging and transport area at or near the
   incident site where remains can be held temporarily and securely prior to transfer to
   a morgue.
Incident Morgue Operations


FF. If typical mortuary transport is not available, the City of Arlington will arrange for
    bodies to be transported in vans, trucks, or other enclosed vehicles. To the extent
    possible, the City of Arlington will cover any identifying markings on vehicles used to
    transport or hold bodies.
GG.           When possible, bodies will be transported to the SCMEO. When the
  number of victims exceeds the SCMEO capacity, the City of Arlington may establish
  a temporary morgue in facilities with suitable cooling and security capabilities
  including ice rinks, aircraft hangars, warehouses, and empty public buildings.
HH.           Temporary burials may be justified during a mass fatality incident to help
   slow decomposition until conditions allow for the transfer of the remains to their final
   destination. Temporary burials may also be authorized during infectious disease
   outbreak when public gatherings, such as funerals, should be limited. The use of
   documentation and markers of the temporary burial site should be followed in the
   same accordance as final burial in officially established cemeteries.
II. To ensure positive identification of victims, the City of Arlington will employ
    established identification methods including forensic odontology, fingerprinting, x-
    rays, and DNA.
JJ. The City of Arlington may establish a private viewing area within the morgue for
    decedents’ family members and loved ones. Mental health services will be
    established nearby to provide emotional assistance.

                                           Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan
 KK.           Under no circumstances will the City of Arlington bury victims in mass
    graves or conduct mass cremations.
 LL. The City of Arlington will make every effort to respect religious rites or cultural beliefs
     of families of the deceased with regard to recovery, identification, and burial. Where
     the religious or cultural beliefs of the deceased are unknown, the cultural norms of
     the community at large will be honored.
 MM.            Unidentified remains will be buried so that they can be exhumed when
   identification is possible and returned to their relatives for disposition. Prior to burial,
   the City of Arlington will ensure that appropriate samples are taken to proceed with
   future identification.
 NN.             The City of Arlington will request the governor authorize expedited
    certification of deaths from the disaster when body recovery is impossible because of
    the nature of the disaster.
OO. During an extended mass fatality incident, such as an infectious disease outbreak,
    the mayor may implement resource controls, including refrigeration fuels, to ensure
    continued capability for morgue operations.
PP. While direction and control of emergency medical functions at hospitals remain the
    responsibility of each facility's management and staff, hospitals should coordinate
    external efforts including morgue operations through the EOC.
QQ. The City of Arlington will coordinate a locally based response to support a mass
    fatality incident in another Arlington community.
 Family Assistance


RR. With the exception of a mass fatality incident caused by infectious disease outbreak,
    a family assistance center will be established to provide regular briefings and
    respond to the questions of family members and loved ones of the missing and dead.
    If a mass fatality incident is the result of an industry accident, the City of Arlington will
    support any appropriate family assistance activities of the affected industry.
SS. Every effort will be made to protect families at family assistance centers from media
    and curiosity seekers.
TT. Translation services will be available at family assistance centers established by the
    City of Arlington.
UU. The City of Arlington will not authorize the release or confirmation of decedents’
    names until the next of kin have been officially notified.
VV. Every effort will be made to ensure that notification of death is done on an individual
    basis.
 WW.         The City of Arlington will support SCMEO’s efforts to establish a database
   of presumed victims to be cross-referenced with a separate database of the human
   remains undergoing examination.

Emergency Support Function Annex –
Introduction

Each ESF Annex identifies the coordinator and the primary and support agencies
pertinent to the ESF. Several ESF’s incorporate multiple components with primary
agencies designated for each component to ensure seamless integration of and
transition between preparedness, response, and recovery activities.


   ESF Coordinator. The ESF coordinator is the entity with management oversight for
   that particular ESF. The coordinator has ongoing responsibilities throughout the
   preparedness, response, and recovery phases of incident management. The role of
   the ESF coordinator is carried out through a “Unified Command” approach as agreed
   upon collectively and explained within the City of Arlington CEMP.

   ESF Primary Agency(ies). An ESF primary agency is a City of Arlington agency
   with significant authorities, roles, resources or capabilities for a particular function
   within an ESF. ESF’s may have multiple primary agencies, and the specific
   responsibilities for those agencies are articulated within the relevant ESF Annex. A
   city agency designated as an ESF primary agency serves as City of Arlington
   executive agent under the City of Arlington EOC Coordinator to accomplish the
   mission.

   ESF Support Agencies. Support agencies are those entities with specific
   capabilities or resources that support the primary agency(ies) in executing the
   mission of the ESF.

                                       Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan



Support Annex 1 – Evacuation

Introduction

The City of Arlington will facilitate evacuation from any area within the City that is
stricken or threatened by an emergency that jeopardizes human life. A citywide mass
evacuation would likely occur only in the event of a terrorist incident. Factors such as
magnitude, intensity, spread of onset, and duration of the emergency will determine the
type of evacuation required. Area-to-area evacuations might be required because of a
small-scale localized incident such as a hazardous materials accident, major fire,
transportation accident, or flooding.

Evacuations will be coordinated to locations that will provide safety and shelter.
Sheltering in place or remaining at home may be a safe alternative when evacuation is
not possible.

Operational Concepts

  A. An evacuation may be initiated by any of the following individuals:
            Mayor
            Police Chief
            Fire Chief
            Emergency Operations Center Director
            Senior law enforcement, fire services or health officer at the scene of an
                emergency.
  B. Area-to-area evacuations will be initially managed on-scene by the Fire
     Department or Police Department, who will immediately alert the Emergency
     Management Coordinator to activate the EOC when the size and scope of the
     evacuation exceeds routine capacity.
  C. All mass evacuation information will be coordinated through the EOC in
     conjunction with the County ECC. Evacuation information will be broadcast
     through the Emergency Alert System and My State USA Alert System. Other
     forms of evacuation notification may include news media, radio, door-to-door
     notification, mobile sirens, public address systems, distribution of evacuation
     notices and tagging homes.
  D. Once an authorized official has ordered an evacuation, the City will make every
     reasonable effort to evacuate all persons from a designated area. Any person
     who refuses to evacuate at the order of a city official will be advised by the
     emergency official of the associated risk and if time allows will be asked to sign a
     liability release document, give the name and location of next of kin as well as to
     write their name and social security number in permanent marker on their forearm.
  E. Agencies wishing to deliver services to vulnerable populations in evacuated or
     otherwise restricted areas should contact the EOC to coordinate access. If
     conditions for limited entry are appropriate, the EOC will identify a process to
     expedite the travel of approved service providers.
  F. During a flood or other emergency requiring immediate evacuation, all residents
     needing evacuation transportation assistance will be given equal priority.
     Following an earthquake or other incident where immediate danger has passed,
     vulnerable populations will be given priority for evacuation transportation
     assistance.

                                       Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan
  G. Protection of human life is the immediate goal of city responders. During a
     disaster the City of Arlington Police, Fire or other agencies are not responsible for
     the rescue, evacuation, sheltering or welfare of animals.
  H. The City will support the movement of evacuees transporting domestic household
     animals during an ordered evacuation. Residents should be prepared to evacuate
     their pets in a manner that does not threaten the safety or welfare of other
     evacuees.
  I. A public information officer will be dispatched to all evacuation assembly areas.
  J. During an evacuation, the City will dedicate a majority of streets to egress. Other
     available streets will be used for ingress of emergency services.
  K. Whenever possible, evacuation traffic will be directed north during an area-wide or
     mass evacuation to an assembly area in the Stanwood/northern Snohomish
     County vicinity. When time, resources and/or circumstances do not allow for
     northern evacuation, a southern assembly area will be coordinated.
  L. The City EOC and County ECC will coordinate Public transportation entities that
     may be used to transport persons from designated evacuation assembly areas.
  M. Each individual or head of household within the City is encouraged to develop a
     family disaster plan that includes maintaining the essential supplies to sustain for
     five to seven days in the event that evacuation is not possible.
  N. Businesses and private educational institutions should establish evacuation plans
     and be familiar with the City evacuation directives as part of their emergency
     procedures.
  O. Child and adult day care facilities are required to establish evacuation plans,
     which are to be included in their all-hazards emergency plan.
  P. Cascade Hospital and residential care facilities within the City will develop
     evacuation plans that include:
            Partnerships with similar establishments/size facilities in other parts of
              town and plans to evacuate their patients/residents to those locations
              during an area-to-area evacuation.
            Partnerships with similar establishments outside the City and plans to
              evacuate their patients/residents to those locations during an area-wide
              or mass evacuation.
  Q. During an area-to-area evacuation, Arlington School District will evacuate
     students to schools in the less affected area of town.
  R. The City will seek to provide shelters with the assistance of Red Cross and local
     congregations, for persons unable to remain or return home during or after an
     evacuation. All evacuees will be encouraged to register with the American Red
     Cross Disaster Welfare Inquiry System.
  S. When the conditions that caused the mandatory evacuation cease to exist, the
     EOC will coordinate reentry with the City of Arlington Police and Fire
     Departments.

Responsibilities
      The responsibilities listed herein are not intended to be departmental checklists.
      Each agency/department will develop internal policies and procedures to perform
      its assigned duties. At the discretion of the incident commander not all functions
      may be performed
      nor all agencies used.

Support Annex 2 - Mass Casualty

Mass Casualty
The City of Arlington will coordinate mass casualty incident response to minimize loss of
life and human suffering. A mass casualty incident is an event with critical injuries or
deaths exceeding the normal response capability of an emergency medical services
organization. A major earthquake, hazardous materials release, or acts of terrorism are
examples of emergencies where a mass casualty incident might occur.

Operational concepts
A. Direction and control of emergency medical functions at hospitals remain the
   responsibility of each facility's management and staff during a mass casualty
   incident.
B. The City of Arlington will make a reasonable effort to triage known family members to
   the same hospital.
C. The City of Arlington may activate a congregate care facility to deliver non-critical
   mass medical care to ease congestion at area hospitals. Hospitals may also
   establish additional areas to deliver non-critical mass medical care and triage.
D. During a mass casualty incident, qualified medical providers, non-acute care
   hospitals, outpatient clinics and other medical facilities should be prepared to treat
   minor injuries and perform triage when necessary.
E. If normal communications are disrupted during a disaster, medical personnel are
   encouraged to report to the hospital where they practice for possible reassignment.
F. The City of Arlington Airport will direct FAA mass casualty protocols during a mass
   casualty incident caused by aircraft crash.
G. The Washington State Troopers will augment local search and rescue efforts to
   support a mass casualty incident.
H. The State Medical Examiner’s Office should be contacted as soon as practicable
   when a mass casualty incident has been identified.
I.   A Hospital Emergency Alert Response Network (HEARNet) will be established
     between emergency medical responders and area hospital. Efforts to include
     hospitals outside the local area will be made as necessary and as technological
     capabilities allow.
J. Responders at a hazardous materials incident and medical facilities receiving victims
   from a hazardous materials site will ensure they fully understand the incident
   commander’s situational assessment and take full precautions to protect themselves.
K. During a mass casualty incident caused by a chemical, biological, radiological, or
   nuclear event, the City of Arlington may provide security at hospital emergency
   rooms to prevent further contamination.
L. Initial victim decontamination must be performed in the field to minimize further
   contamination as not all hospitals may have adequate decontamination facilities.
M. The EOC in coordination with area hospitals will request a Disaster Medical
   Assistance Team immediately upon awareness that an incident may overload area

Support Annex 3 - Mass Fatality

Mass Fatality
A mass fatality incident is any situation where the number of fatalities exceeds the ability
of local resources to manage the bodies. The primary functions of a mass fatality
response are body recovery, morgue operations, and assisting the decedents’ family
members and loved ones. Although the morgue capacity within the City of Arlington is
approximately 100 bodies, an incident with 25 fatalities would likely overwhelm local
capabilities.
A mass fatality incident may be caused by natural or manmade disaster including airline
crash, infectious disease outbreak, structural collapse, avalanche, warfare, and act of
terrorism.

Operational concepts
A. As set forth by Washington state law, responsibility for collection, identification,
   storage, and dispatch of bodies lies with the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s
   Office (SCMEO). The City of Arlington will contact the SCMEO as soon as
   practicable when a mass fatality incident has been identified and will provide
   resource support for the SCMEO’s actions as requested and within its capabilities.
B. In an incident where the SCMEO is unable to respond, it may delegate certain duties
   to local law enforcement or other personnel.
C. The Ted Stevens Arlington International Airport will direct FAA mass fatality protocols
   during a mass fatality incident caused by aircraft crash.
D. The Federal Bureau of Investigation may assume victim identification responsibilities
   in incidents involving interstate commercial carriers, hostage situations, acts of
   terrorism or other incidents that include a law enforcement component.
E. The City of Arlington in coordination with SCMEO will submit a request to the state
   for disaster mortuary capability immediately upon awareness that an incident may
   overload area local mortuary capabilities.



Recovery Activities

F. Recovery activities should occur only after all known survivors of the incident are
   reasonably moved to safety.
G. The City of Arlington will ensure that the welfare and mental health needs of staff
   working to respond to a mass fatality incident are attended to and will be balanced
   with social pressures to quickly complete mortuary procedures and repatriate victims.
H. A mass fatality site occurring from any incident other than a natural disaster should
   be treated as a crime scene until the incident commander in consultation with the
   SCMEO directs otherwise.
I.   The City of Arlington will establish a Joint Information Center (JIC) to ensure
     accurate and expedient dissemination of information. All agencies involved in
     incident response should coordinate public information activities through the JIC.
J. Bodies will not be moved from the incident site without approval from the SCMEO.
Emergency Safety Function                                                         Page 102
                                        Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan
K. In most situations, the presence of dead bodies is not considered a significant public
   health risk. However, because of the possibility of responder contact with bodily
   fluids a mass fatality site will be treated as a biohazard site until the incident
   commander directs otherwise. Responders having direct contact with bodies will take
   universal precautions to protect themselves from contact with bodily fluids.
L. Bodies will not be stacked on top of one another in any storage situation, except in
   extreme situations when it is necessary to use refrigeration to preserve the bodies
   and space is limited or during transportation.
M. Every attempt should be made to identify the bodies at the site where they are found
   regardless of the number of dead. Tags should be attached to the bodies that
   provide the name, if known, and the approximate age, sex, and location of the body.
N. Examination of bodies will not be conducted at the incident site with the exception of
   checking pockets of victims’ clothing to look for identification documents when
   directed by the incident commander.
O. If body bags are not available for the removal of remains, a durable impermeable
   substitute may be used.
P. The City of Arlington will establish a resource staging area at or near the incident site
   to control the incident response resources.
Q. The City of Arlington will establish a body staging and transport area at or near the
   incident site where remains can be held temporarily and securely prior to transfer to
   a morgue.

Incident Morgue Operations

R. If typical mortuary transport is not available, the City of Arlington will arrange for
   bodies to be transported in vans, trucks, or other enclosed vehicles. To the extent
   possible, the City of Arlington will cover any identifying markings on vehicles used to
   transport or hold bodies.
S. When possible, bodies will be transported to the SCMEO. When the number of
   victims exceeds the SCMEO capacity, the City of Arlington may establish a
   temporary morgue in facilities with suitable cooling and security capabilities including
   ice rinks, aircraft hangars, warehouses, and empty public buildings.
T. Temporary burials may be justified during a mass fatality incident to help slow
   decomposition until conditions allow for the transfer of the remains to their final
   destination. Temporary burials may also be authorized during infectious disease
   outbreak when public gatherings, such as funerals, should be limited. The use of
   documentation and markers of the temporary burial site should be followed in the
   same accordance as final burial in officially established cemeteries.
U. To ensure positive identification of victims, the City of Arlington will employ
   established identification methods including forensic odontology, fingerprinting, x-
   rays, and DNA.
V. The City of Arlington may establish a private viewing area within the morgue for
   decedents’ family members and loved ones. Mental health services will be
   established nearby to provide emotional assistance.

                                           Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan
 W. Under no circumstances will the City of Arlington bury victims in mass graves or
    conduct mass cremations.
 X. The City of Arlington will make every effort to respect religious rites or cultural beliefs
    of families of the deceased with regard to recovery, identification, and burial. Where
    the religious or cultural beliefs of the deceased are unknown, the cultural norms of
    the community at large will be honored.
 Y. Unidentified remains will be buried so that they can be exhumed when identification
    is possible and returned to their relatives for disposition. Prior to burial, the City of
    Arlington will ensure that appropriate samples are taken to proceed with future
    identification.
 Z. The City of Arlington will request the governor authorize expedited certification of
    deaths from the disaster when body recovery is impossible because of the nature of
    the disaster.
AA. During an extended mass fatality incident, such as an infectious disease outbreak,
    the mayor may implement resource controls, including refrigeration fuels, to ensure
    continued capability for morgue operations.
BB. While direction and control of emergency medical functions at hospitals remain the
    responsibility of each facility's management and staff, hospitals should coordinate
    external efforts including morgue operations through the EOC.
CC. The City of Arlington will coordinate a locally based response to support a mass
    fatality incident in another Arlington community.

 Family Assistance

DD. With the exception of a mass fatality incident caused by infectious disease outbreak,
    a family assistance center will be established to provide regular briefings and
    respond to the questions of family members and loved ones of the missing and dead.
    If a mass fatality incident is the result of an industry accident, the City of Arlington will
    support any appropriate family assistance activities of the affected industry.
EE. Every effort will be made to protect families at family assistance centers from media
    and curiosity seekers.
FF. Translation services will be available at family assistance centers established by the
    City of Arlington.
GG. The City of Arlington will not authorize the release or confirmation of decedents’
    names until the next of kin have been officially notified.
HH. Every effort will be made to ensure that notification of death is done on an individual
    basis.
 II. The City of Arlington will support SCMEO’s efforts to establish a database of
     presumed victims to be cross-referenced with a separate database of the human
     remains undergoing examination.

Support Annex 4 – Volunteer and Donations Management


Volunteer & Donations Management
The City of Arlington will coordinate volunteer resources to augment emergency
response when a citywide disaster overwhelms professional emergency response
resources.

Operational concepts
A. Volunteers acting of their own accord during an emergency should exercise common
   sense in responding to minor incidents in their immediate area and be willing to
   direct the efforts of other citizens.
B. Volunteer organizations should not respond to an incident or congregate care sites
   unless directed by the EOC. Agencies should establish formal agreements with the
   City of Arlington to be included in municipally managed emergency response efforts.
C. All volunteers are expected to defer to the direction of the incident commander or to
   any emergency response professional that appears on the scene. The incident
   commander has the authority to restrict access to a scene.
D. Requests for volunteer resources and services will be coordinated through the
   Human Resources Unit at the EOC.
E. General volunteers who have received specific preparedness training such as
   Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) may be asked to monitor local
   conditions and provide general damage assessment information to the EOC or to
   provide local public information in their neighborhoods.
F. Individual or spontaneous volunteers not affiliated with a voluntary agency must
   register with the Human Resources Unit of the EOC (or field equivalent) and
   depending upon circumstances may not be deployed. Individual or spontaneous
   volunteers may be directed to the United Way of Snohomish County or other disaster
   volunteer management groups to respond to and provide relief during and after
   emergencies.
G. Volunteers are protected by and will abide by the State Good Samaritan Law and the
   Washington Administrative Code (WAC) 118-04 which implements the provisions of
   RCW 38.52 by establishing the procedures and qualifications for registration of
   "emergency workers" (volunteers) and explains how the compensation program is
   administered. Volunteer Protection Act of 1997.
H. Each voluntary agency will designate one representative and one alternate who will
   be contacted by the EOC as their services are required.
