Review – Lesson 5: Emergency Operations Plan An emergency operations plan (EOP) is a key component of an emergency management program that establishes the overall authority, roles, and functions performed during incidents. CPG 101 describes the process for developing and maintaining an EOP. The CPG planning process has 6 steps: Step 1: Form a Collaborative Planning Team Experiences and best practices show that planning is most effective when performed by a team. The steps to form a collaborative planning team include: Identifying the core planning team. In most jurisdictions, the emergency manager provides oversight of the planning team, although other government agencies or departments may have overlapping or complementary responsibilities. The involvement of executives from member agencies or departments is critical. Engaging the whole community. Planning that is for the whole community and involves the whole community is crucial to the success of the plan. Effectively involving the community is a challenge, but community leaders and community members provide keen insight into the community’s needs and capabilities. Step 2: Understand the Situation
