EM 235 Emergency Planning Course - Basic

The Emergency Planning course presents a planning process that is applicable to all four phases of comprehensive emergency management. The course is designed to help State and local governments develop an integrated emergency planning program that focuses on preparedness and response and is integrated with mitigation and recovery planning activities.

The course is designed to demonstrate the emergency planning process and development techniques for State and local emergency planners. It stresses a functional approach to all-hazard emergency planning. Participants will apply the planning process specifically to the development of an all-hazard emergency operations plan for their own communities, through initial action plans prepared during the course.
