The Emergency Response Network of the Inland Empire (ERNIE) facilitates public agency preparedness for, response to and recovery from local and regional disasters to ensure the delivery of critical public services through mutual aid, communicaitons and compliance with State and Federal emergency standards.
Yucaipa Valley Water District is actively involved in the ERNIE program. YVWD staff are continually trained in the event of a natural disaster. Currently District staff are updating the 2005 Hazard Mitigation Plan. The Hazard Mitigation Plan is developed in order to ensure the community is prepared for inevitable natural disasters. Mitigation Planning assists agencies with identifying rapid response and long-term planning actions that will reduce casualties, property loss, environmental damage and public service interruptions.
An electronic copy of the 2010 Yucaipa Valley Water District Hazard Mitigation Plan will be available soon.
