Planning

Implementation-ready emergency plans are an essential cornerstone to any preparedness effort. As a component of planning, comprehensive assessments are a necessary first-step in the initiation of any preparedness activities. We develop plans in accordance with industry standards including CPG-101, CPG-201, NIMS, HICS, EMAP, and NFPA 1600. EPS provides a wide array of planning services including:

  • Traditional Hazard Analysis as well as Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA).

  • Emergency Operations Plans (EOPs) and Comprehensive Emergency Management Plans (CEMPs), including functional and hazard-specific annexes.

  • Business Continuity and Continuity of Operations Plans (BCP/COOP).

  • Emergency Operations Center (EOC) plans and Standard Operating Guidelines (SOGs).

  • Job aids, such as charts, maps, templates, diagrams, and checklists to support consistent implementation of plans

We recommend complimenting all planning services with training to familiarize stakeholders with the plan and exercises to validate the plan.

Client Testimonial

"Emergency Preparedness Solutions (EPS) did a great job in understanding what we as an organization wanted to accomplish and then they executed to detail on the objectives we were testing.  From Concept and Objectives Meeting through exercise design and execution to After Action Review/Improvement, Emergency Preparedness Solutions excelled in all phases.  Our exercise participants were completely happy with the conduct of our exercises, the professionalism of the EPS staff, and the value they received in the cost of the exercises.  I look forward to working with Emergency Preparedness Solutions in future exercises!”
