FEMA Releases All-Hazard Emergency Operations Planning Guide

The Federal Emergency Management Administration has recently released its Comprehensive Preparedness Guide, CPG 101, which provides general guidelines on developing Emergency Operations Plans (EOPs) and promotes a common understanding of the fundamentals of planning and decision making to help emergency planners examine a hazard and produce integrated, coordinated, and synchronized plans. The guide is intended to help emergency managers in state, territorial, local, and tribal governments in their efforts to develop and maintain a viable all-hazard EOP.

CPG 101 continues the more than 50-year effort to provide guidance about emergency operations planning. Some predecessor material can be traced back to the 1960s-era Federal Civil Defense Guide.

Long-time emergency management practitioners also will recognize the influence of Civil Preparedness Guide 1-8, Guide for the Development of State and Local Emergency Operations Plans and State and Local Guide (SLG) 101, Guide for All-Hazards Emergency Operations Planning, in this document. FEMA said that while CPG 101 maintains its link to the past, it also reflects the changed reality of the current emergency planning environment.
