Municipal comprehensive emergency management plans are required by section 252.35 (2)(b), Florida Statutes, to comply with all of the standards and requirements applicable to county comprehensive management plans. 3.

Following the County's determination that the City's CEMP is in compliance with the terms of Chapter 27P-6, Florida Administrative Code, the City Commission is required to adopt the CEMP by resolution in order for the plan to officially become effective as the City's CEMP.
