High-Quality Multi-Hazard Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) Toolkit
3.0 Establishing a Foundation for EOP Preparation
The district planning team includes many subject matter experts in a variety of fields; however, the team cannot assume that all necessary expertise will be readily available. A high-quality multi-hazard EOP is affected by plans, policies, procedures, agreements, and the availability of resources within the district.
To establish a high-quality multi-hazard EOP, the planning team must effectively identify the hazards facing the district and the regulations that impact the district’s ability to prevent, mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from the occurrence of such hazards. This section will address the hazard analysis process and approaches to gathering pertinent information needed for emergency planning within the district.
