California RV Parks Should Plan Now for Emergencies

Editor's Note: From the current issue of Wednesday Morning Coffee Talk & Updates, an e-newsletter from the California Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (CalARVC), comes this article on emergency preparedness and evacuation plans that are required starting in September in California.

New requirements will go into effect Sept. 1, 2010, requiring mobile home parks and special occupancy parks (RV parks and campgrounds) to adopt and post notice in a conspicuous park location of an emergency preparedness plan. A responsible person in each park with 50 or more spaces shall be designated by the park to be familiar with the plan, and parks shall notify new and existing residents on or after September 10, 2010 of where the plan can be accessed.

Click here to read the text of the bill.

Based on the Office of Emergency Services’ Approved Template for a Disaster Manual, CalARVC is creating a template to guide you through the process. We will make it available through the Coffee Talk as soon as it is complete. This document may be used as a guideline to create your own Disaster Manual. For now, put the new requirement on your radar screen and know that it will be something you need to complete before September.

We urge you to be aware of companies advertising emergency plans for excessive prices and obtain estimates from consultants and other sources.

    Please send me the latest template for the new EPP plan for RV Parks, or at least some sort of guideline. Time is short. September 1st is right around the corner. Thanks.

    If you have not completed an Emergency Preparedness Plan I may be able to help. I have completed over 100 plans throughout California and can help you too! Please feel free to email mhigginsconsulting@yahoo.com or visit my website at mhdhconsulting.com.

    Your park must have an Emergency Preparedness Plan included with your Permit to Operate renewal. My phone number is on the website, give me a call if you have questions.

    Thanks, Mitch Higgins
