Purpose and Responsibilities


The purpose of the All-Hazards Advisory Committee (AHAC) is to conduct an ongoing assessment of the planning effort for the local emergency operations plan (EOP). In addition, the committee reviews all other plans that make up the overall disaster and emergency planning effort for local government. The committee will also review all phases of Emergency Management functions to include preparedness, training, exercises, drills, mitigation, and planning as part of a comprehensive effort to ensure community readiness. This committee will perform the following functions as part of its assessment process:

  • To meet all requirements outlined in the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act hereinafter referred to as SARA - Title III.
  • Conduct an ongoing assessment of the emergency management program and functions to determine the readiness of our community to respond to, recover from, and mitigate the effects of a disaster or emergency condition to include a catastrophic event, acts of terrorism, and the utilization of weapons of mass destruction.
  • The AHAC will not be permitted to make changes to any plan requirements that have a state or federal government agency mandate as defined by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the North Carolina Emergency Management Division (NCEM).


The AHAC will review and submit in writing recommendations for changes to the plan custodian - Charlotte-Mecklenburg Emergency Management Office (CMEMO). Any recommendation for change must meet state and federal guidelines. The CMEMO will provide guidance on plan requirements. After changes have been reviewed, compliance has been ensured, and approval has been granted, the changes will be incroporated into the appropriate plan annex or attachment.
