The San Diego County Office of Emergency Services is responsible for maintaining the county emergency plan, which facilitates regional mutual aid. The City of Carlsbad's Emergency Management Administrative Team (CEMAT) maintains the Carlsbad Emergency Operations Plan. These plans are consistent and interoperable to maximize regional mutual aid support. The San Diego County Emergency Site provides information from the national weather service, current fire information from CalFire, SDG&E outages, as well as other emergency information.
Contact the Ready Carlsbad Business Alliance, an organization that promotes business emergency preparedness, continuity of operations and community recovery through services, education programs and cooperative partnerships.
Guidance for emergency planning in schools is provided by the U.S. Department of Education, the California Department of Education, the San Diego County Office of Education, and the Carlsbad Unified School District. The information here is intended to supplement, but not replace, the information provided by the Department of Education. The State of California requires all California schools to develop and implement comprehensive safe school plans and the formulation and submission of civil defense and emergency plans. The California Department of Education has developed Safe Schools: A Planning Guide for Action that addresses these requirements.
