Cal EMA and FEMA Launch Southern California Catastrophic Earthquake Plan (OPLAN)

The Southern California Catastrophic Earthquake Response Plan (OPLAN) provides a coordinated state/federal response to a catastrophic earthquake in Southern California. This OPLAN is the result of more than 1500 emergency management professionals determining how best to use the combined capabilities of the private sector, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), local state, tribal and federal resources to respond to a magnitude 7.8 earthquake on the southern San Andreas Fault.
