Bay Area emergency response plan completed

Anew emergency response plan for the Bay Area that allows organized communication among the region’s 10 counties in the event of natural and man-made emergencies was completed Thursday as the region prepared for what could be its largest storm in two years.

The Regional Emergency Coordination Plan allows Bay Area emergency response agencies to collaborate on disasters such as earthquakes, oil spills and weather-related catastrophes.

“Disasters know no boundaries,” San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom said and a news conference on Treasure Island. “The region is [now] in the best place … to be prepared for a major disaster.”
