SUMMARY
The Emergency Operations Plan for the City of Danville, which includes reference documents and the Hazardous Materials Emergency Response Plan, has been updated as required to comply with the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Virginia Department of Emergency Management.
BACKGROUND
