MCER NO. 41-97:  PROPOSED REPEAL OF DEPARTMENT OF FIRE AND RESCUE SERVICE REGULATION
                          Fire and Rescue Service Disaster Plan

SUMMARY:  Executive Regulation 41-97 is proposed for repeal because it conflicts with the Emergency Support Function #4 Firefighting Annex of the County’s Office of Emergency Management/Department of Homeland Security’s Disaster Plan, November, 2013.  ER# 47-97 is Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service Operations Plan that directs the activities of MCFRS personnel during periods of public emergency caused by natural disasters or manmade incidents.  On September 26, 2006, the County Council adopted Resolution #15-1612, The Montgomery County National Incident Management System (NIMS) Policy, and the responsibility for developing emergency and disaster response plans for all County departments, including MCFRS, was transferred to the Office of Emergency Management and the new Department of Homeland Security (OEMHS).  MCFRS existing Executive Regulation #41-97 conflicts with ESF#4 of OEMHS’ new disaster plan and must be repealed .
