Emergency Management

 

The City of West Jordan has designed an Emergency Operations Center to be utilized in the event a natural or manmade disaster. The multi-purpose space is also used by the Fire Department for training. The West Jordan EOC will work in conjunction with Salt Lake County and the State of Utah if conditions warrant.   

 

Emergency Management has existed for many years in different forms. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) was created in 1979 by President Jimmy Carter to bring together various federal agencies that were tasked with responding to disasters. The attacks of September 11, 2001, brought man-made disasters into our view. This was followed by Hurricane Katrina on August 23, 2005. In West Jordan, active disaster planning started around 1998 with preparations for the anticipated Y2K computer uncertainty of January 1, 2000. Since then the Fire Department Deputy Chief over Prevention and Emergency Management has been tasked to serve as the emergency program manager for the city.
