This annex outlines our concept of operations and organizational arrangements for transportation of people, supplies, and materials during emergency situations, assigns responsibilities for various transportation tasks, and outlines related administrative requirements for a LSCS facility.
Concept of Operations
When conducting emergency transportation activities, immediate needs must be considered first, followed by continuing requirements. Immediate transportation needs normally involve the evacuation of people and animals from risk areas. Continuing transportation needs typically involve the movement of relief supplies, equipment, and emergency workers during response and recovery operations. The LSCS Vice President of Administrative Services shall serve as primary Transportation Officer and coordinate emergency transportation operations on behalf of LSCS. Other departments and entities that have a role under the Transportation Annex include:
- LSCSPolice Department
- LSCS OEM
- Law Enforcement Agencies
- School Districts
- METRO (limited to City of Houston/Harris County)
- Private transportation companies.
- Annex S (Transportation) to the State of Texas Emergency Management Plan
