Program Overview

Welcome to the Chabot-Las Positas Emergency Preparedness website. Our office is located within the Human Resource Services department in the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District office. The intent of this website is to provide emergency planning information and assistance to the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District family. 

The Emergency Preparedness office was created in January 2009 to oversee the emergency preparedness and planning activities for the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District.  The office is tasked with the oversight of the District's "All Hazards" Emergency Operations Plan which will be used in the event a natural disaster or a human-made incident strikes. 

Our goal is to provide a means to utilize all available resources to PREPARE for potential emergencies or disasters whenever possible and deal efficiently with the effects of inevitable events, RESPOND to save lives and protect property, and promote a means to RECOVER mission critical business and academic operations.

Mission & Vision


The Emergency Preparedness office will lead the District’s emergency preparedness efforts. This will include planning and training programs with the District’s colleges, and local, region, state, and federal emergency agencies.


We will provide a comprehensive emergency preparedness program for the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District through strong leadership, collaborations, effective communication, and continuous improvement.

Philosophy of Operations

Preparedness activities, programs, and systems are those that exist prior to an emergency incident and are used to support and enhance response to an emergency incident. Planning, training, exercising, and communications are among the activities conducted under this phase.

Response means activities and programs designed to address the immediate and short-term effects of the onset of an emergency incident. Response operations are designed to reduce casualties and damage and to speed recovery back to normal business and academic operations. Response activities include direction and control, warning, evacuation, other similar operations and appropriate communications.

Recovery is the phase that involves restoring systems to normal status. Short-term recovery actions are undertaken to assess damage and return vital systems to minimum operating standards; long-term recovery actions may continue indefinitely, but are intended to restore facilities and systems to full capacity.

Emergency Planning


The Chabot-Las Positas Community College District’s Emergency Preparedness and Workplace Safety office has developed an integrated Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) as a reference of emergency/disaster information and the basic source of data to accomplish the various types of emergency missions. It is designed to bring the user to the point of knowing what is to be done, and who is to do it. It may include information relative to when and where the response will be effective, and even why it will be done.

The Chabot-Las Positas Community College District must be prepared for any possible emergencies and to respond to all emergency situations in a safe and timely manner. District employees and equipment will be used to provide priority protection for:

It is anticipated that, as operations progress from Priority 1 through Priority 2 and 3 responses, the administrative control of the District will move initially from its normal operating or organizational structure to SEMS (Standardized Emergency Management System), including the activation of the District and College’s Emergency Operations Centers as needed and then back again to the normal organizational structure.
