Basic Emergency Operations Plan (BEOP)
The purpose of the Basic Emergency Operations Plan (BEOP) is to establish emergency guidelines that the City of Pacific governmental departments and offices shall follow in response to a major incident or disaster. It provides the general framework and outlines the general course of action, that shall be taken to protect lives, property, public health and safety, and avert or lessen the threat of a catastrophe in any part of Pacific in the event of a natural or man-made disaster, technological accident or enemy attack.
The scope of the BEOP also encompasses guidelines and operational concepts to be implemented by related agencies who are likely to be deployed along with direct City personnel as the specific incident warrants. Examples of this includes the Pacific Fire Protection District, Meramec Ambulance District and the County Public health Department. A “Whole Community” approach is embedded in the BEOP, affording Pacific to optimize readiness and recovery.
Emergency Support Functions (ESFs)
Emergency Support Functions (ESFs) is the grouping of governmental and certain private sector capabilities into an organizational structure to provide support, resources, program implementation, and services that are most likely needed to save lives, protect property and the environment, restore essential services and critical infrastructure, and help victims and communities return to normal following domestic incidents. As outlined in our BEOP, each ESF is headed by a primary agency which has been selected based on its authorities, resources and capabilities in that particular area. Other agencies have been designated as support agencies for one or more ESFs based on their ability to support the primary ESF.
