The Department of Emergency Services is hosting a 3 day Emergency Planning Course. This course is designed for emergency management personnel who are involved in developing an effective emergency planning system. This course offers training on
• How recent disasters have changed the way governments at all levels should plan.
• How the Comprehensive Preparedness Guide (CPG) 101 helps State, local, and tribal governments determine and structure their planning requirements.
• How CPG 201 helps the Whole Community look at Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment, which forms the foundation of all emergency planning
• Relating emergency planning to National Incident Management System (NIMS) compliance and integration.
• Associating planning principles and concepts to the overall planning process.
• Identifying how the steps in the planning process can improve both deliberate and crisis action planning.
• Implementing the planning process model for future planning efforts.
• Determining which Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) format is best suited to their jurisdictions.
An online pre-test will be a prerequisite for this training. Successful applicants will be provided instructions on how to complete this requirement upon acceptance.
