Planning

Under FEMA's new Public Assistance delivery model, the necessity for pre-disaster planning is greater than ever. The better prepared a city, county, or state is, the more effective the recovery effort in case disaster does strike.

ESSENTIAL PLANS INCLUDE:


  • Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP), formerly known as an Emergency Action Plan (EAP)
  • Recovery Plan
  • Life Line Plans (ESFs)
  • Debris Management
  • Continuity Of Operations Plan (COOP)/ Continuity Of Government (COG)
  • Hazard Mitigation Plans
  • Long-Term Recovery Plans
  • Threat and Vulnerability Assessment
  • Asset Management Tool/Database

TIPS FOR DISASTER PLANNING:


  1. Make sure policies are in place, before the disaster, for emergency management, procurement, and HR pay.
  2. Establish on-call contracts for lower costs, to ensure you have proper staffing, and so you can conduct proper procurement.
