Emergency Preparedness Commission

The Emergency Preparedness Commission (EPC) was officially renamed on June 3, 2008. It was formerly the Citizen's Emergency Preparedness Commission (CEPAC). The Commission advises the City Council regarding emergency preparedness and disaster planning. The EPC has coordinated along with the Milpitas Unified School District an emergency evacuation and mass feeding drill alternating between schools in Milpitas. The Commission members are appointed by the City Council to three-year terms and alternates are appointed to two-year terms. The Commission is composed of dedicated volunteers who make recommendations to the City Council. The composition of the EPC is eight at-large representatives who are citizens of Milpitas or residents within the boundaries of the Milpitas Unified School District or represent a business located in Milpitas; one representative is appointed by the Milpitas Board of Education and two at-large city/school district residents as alternates.
