IT Strategic Planning


The City envisions and requires even greater use of innovative technology in the years ahead. Forward thinking strategic planning will help guide many technology decisions in the future through the examination of the business processes and future technology needs.  With consistent evaluation of emerging technologies and how they align with the City’s goals, the Information Technology Department can continue to provide innovative solutions to meet the needs of the City.  Strategic planning also entails a regular evaluation of the business process within the City; perpetual evaluation of process improvements and efficiencies is a critical component of the strategic planning effort.

Emergency Preparedness

When a disaster occurs, the Emergency Services Director meets with city staff to prioritize and develop strategies to handle the disaster incident. The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is activated. The EOC becomes the center of communication and coordination of resources. The Emergency Preparedness Manager coordinates all of the functions within the EOC.
The Information Technology Department plays a large role in EOC communication through a variety of resources including radio, local, online, and local resident resource means.

A disaster can take many forms including earthquakes, floods, major power outages, major fires, radiological accidents/attacks, chemical accidents/attacks, or biological accidents/attacks.

Our last EOC drill event took place in June 2013.  The drill focused heavily on the criticality of communication during an emergency.  As power, telephone, and technology outages grew during the mock emergency, different methods of communicating were utilized.  Local citizens also participated with expertise of Ham radio operations.
CBS Sacramento covered the event in the news.
