The City of Dayton planning process for any large event uses an “all hazards” approach. Strategies for prevention and risk mitigation have been identified as a part of this planning process. Threats or hazards that have been classified as probable and those hazards that could cause injury, property damage, business disruption or environmental impact have been addressed. The City of Dayton was able to accomplish this task by engaging local, county, state and national partners.
The City of Dayton’s elected government consists of 4 elected commissioners and 1 elected Mayor. The Mayor and Commissioners are responsible for establishing and authorizing necessary emergency operations for the protection of citizens and of property.
The City Commission appoints a City Manager who serves as Chief Administrative Officer for the city in all matters. Dayton’s City Manager serves as the jurisdiction’s Emergency Manager and as such is responsible for all actions associated with emergency management.
Routine police patrols and calls for service will be answered. A sufficient number of officers are not assigned to the downtown event and are assigned to normal patrol duties.
