					    Earthquakes, fires, floods, landslides, heavy snow, high winds and an
occasional tornado have all helped California earn the title the “Disney Land of
Disasters”. Disasters are occurring more often and are creating unprecedented
amounts of debris. In addition, more large, even complex developments are
being built in disaster-prone areas.

    As a result of the increasing amounts of debris, the Governor’s Office of
Emergency Services (OES) is encouraging local and state governments to plan
and prepare for a disastrous event by developing a “Debris Management Plan”.       Debris Management Plan

 A debris management plan needs to address both short-term and long-term actions   the plan purpose, assumptions
 and responsibilities as a result of a disaster.
