EM 726 Survivable Crisis Management

Survivable Crisis Management (SCM) is an operational capability the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) seeks to achieve in the States and Territories. The SCM capability FEMA seeks to achieve is the ability of each of the States and Territories to survive a catastrophic emergency and be able to direct, control, and coordinate emergency operations within the State and in coordination and cooperation with other States and the Federal Government. The objective of the SCM initiative is to develop a network of survivable capabilities within each State, nationwide among the States, and between the States and the Federal Government to ensure that States can continue to govern.

The purpose of this document is to guide the States and Territories through the step-by-step process necessary to develop an SCM capability. Designed as a practical tool to aid in the development of SCM plans and proposals, this development guide is a companion document to An Introduction to Survivable Crisis Management, published in September 1992. Although this development guide focuses on the development of statewide SCM capabilities, the same procedures are applicable to comprehensive local government planning.
