(b) The emergency preparedness plan shall be one of the following:
(1) adopting the emergency plans and procedures contained in the Standardized Emergency Management System Advisory Board's booklet of November 21, 1997, entitled “Emergency Plans for Mobilehome Parks,” published by the former Office of Emergency Services or any subsequent version, or
(2) a plan developed by park management comparable to the plans and procedures contained in the booklet described in subparagraph (1) above.

(4) written verification by the park operator that all residents have received written notification on how to obtain a copy of the plan and the information required in subsection (c)(3).
(d) At a minimum the following items should be included in a park's emergency preparedness plan to be deemed consistent with or comparable to the “Emergency Plans for Mobilehome Parks” booklet, the standard defined in Health and Safety Code 18603.

(7) Local emergency broadcast station frequencies.
(8) Information on how residents may obtain additional materials for establishing an individual household emergency plan, individual household emergency supply kits, and individual home safety recommendations.
