FEMA Releases Interim Government Preparedness Guide

The Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency recently announced the release of the interim "Comprehensive Preparedness Guide 101: Producing Emergency Plans: A Guide for All-Hazard Operations Planning for State, Territorial, Local, and Tribal Governments" (CPG 101).

FEMA said the guide was developed by a team of tribal, state, and local officials from all around the United States who worked together to develop guidance that can aid jurisdictions in protecting their citizens. CPG 101 is the first in the series of publications developed through the FEMA National Preparedness Directorate's CPG Initiative. Future CPGs will discuss planning considerations for a variety of emergency functions, hazards, and special preparedness programs. Example topics include: Response Catastrophic Logistics Planning, Evacuation Planning, Debris Management, Emergency Public Information, and Natural Hazards. The next guide scheduled for release is "Comprehensive Preparedness Guide 301 - Emergency Planning Guide for Special Needs Populations."

CPG 101 is meant to serve as the foundation for both public and private sector emergency planning in the United States, FEMA said. Emergency planners in all disciplines and organizations may find portions of the guide useful in the development of their emergency response plans. Over the next several months, a series of forums will be held and an open comment period conducted prior to finalizing the document.
