We assist our partners in the development and maintenance of Emergency Operations Plans (EOPs) as well as assistance with Continuity of Operations (COOP) and Continuity of Government (COG) planning. We also help our emergency managers and first responders prepare for all hazards by providing training, drills and exercises.
During response activities, we activate communications and warning systems and coordinate resources and response personnel. We provide, maintain and issue access to emergency management software to expedite emergency operations center processes, and we also develop and maintain an electronic resource database for our partners.
When recovering from a disaster, we assist our partners in activities to restore the community to a normal state. This helps to reduce human suffering and impact to jurisdictions before, during, and after disasters.
