On November 17, 2020, The Saguache County Board of County Commissioners signed the 2019 Saguache County Emergency Operations Plan (EOP). The EOP outlines general guidelines on how the county carries out its response and recovery responsibilities to address an emergency or disaster event. This plan can only be activated through the issuance of a local Disaster Declaration. Adoption of the plan through this order identifies that the director of the Saguache County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) will lead county disaster or emergency response and recovery efforts. Once the plan is activated, all county departments and offices are mandated under the authority of the Colorado Disaster Emergency Act (C.R.S. 24-33.5-701) and this plan to carry out assigned activities related to mitigating effects of an emergency or disaster and to cooperate fully with each other, the OEM, and other political subdivisions in providing emergency assistance.
