State of New Mexico Emergency Operations Plan
The purpose of the State of New Mexico All-Hazard Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) is to establish the New Mexico Emergency Operations System which organizes the state’s response to emergencies and disasters while providing for the safety and welfare of its citizens. It sets forth lines of authority, responsibilities and organizational relationships, and shows how all actions will be coordinated among the State of New Mexico and federal and local governments.
The EOP addresses emergencies and disasters caused by natural or manmade events, acts of terrorism, or any other circumstance as determined by the Governor. It applies when it is necessary for the state to assist local jurisdictions whose capabilities are overwhelmed; when the state has to respond first; or, when the state needs to prepare for, react to, or assist in incidents of national significance. The EOP covers the full range of complex and changing requirements prior to, during, and following an emergency or disaster.
