1. The local disaster preparedness plans for each county, city, town, or village shall be so developed that no part of the local disaster preparedness plan of any county or any city, town, or village within such county conflicts with any part of the local disaster preparedness plan of any of the other said entities within such county or such county itself. In the event of any such conflict, such conflict shall be resolved by such county. The provisions of this subdivision shall not apply to a city wholly containing more than one county or to any county wholly contained within any such city.

2. In the event that any part of the local disaster preparedness plan of any county or any city, town, or village within such county conflicts with any part of the local disaster preparedness plan of any other county or any city, town, or village within any such other county, such conflict shall be resolved by the state emergency management office, as defined in paragraph (e) of subdivision one of section twenty-nine-e of this article. The provisions of this subdivision shall not apply to any county wholly contained within a city wholly containing more than one county. Any city wholly containing more than one county shall be subject to the provisions of this subdivision as if it were a county.

3. Said state emergency management office is hereby authorized and directed to promulgate any rules or regulations or take any other measures necessary to effectuate the provisions of this section.
