Catastrophic Response (NPCEM draft framework and planning for continuity of operations)

Bill and I shared this Continuity of Government/Continuity Of Operations (COG/COOP) resource in a late-2012 Fedhealth enews after we met Nez Perce County EM Director Mel Johnson (now retired).

Since our country has experienced a national emergency and response unlike anything we’ve seen before, we thought this Catastrophic Response post might be an interesting discussion to have with first responders, emergency managers and the public in general.

Back in 2010, the Nez Perce County (Idaho) Board of Commissioners resolved to create a Continuity Planning Team to write a comprehensive local plan to carry out the objectives and directives of national contingency plans -- to maintain civil order and ensure essential services continue operations -- in the event of a national emergency - esp. one that impacts critical infrastructure and community lifelines.

In a catastrophic event, stress levels will be high and time of the essence. Chief elected officials and Annex leads will need essential information in concise format to be able to act quickly and decisively in a disaster.

Nez Perce posted a draft of their contingency plan focusing on effective local government response to a catastrophic event of any kind. This plan is about getting the 90% of people who have not prepared safely through the dangerous transition period, until relative stability is achieved.

The purpose of their contingency plan is to assist the citizens of their region safely through a major complex system degradation/failure or a catastrophic event of national significance.

This contingency plan would only be implemented during an event of national significance where federal response may not be available for an extended period of time. Local jurisdictions will use their standard Local Emergency Operations Plans for traditional disasters.

We encourage public input and participation by public safety agencies, business owners and citizens to promote interagency cooperation and whole community involvement in emergency management. Sensitive information is intentionally omitted from this plan to allow public participation.

Read Nez Perce County's “Base Plan” first (29-pg PDF) to understand the context of the plan, then click on and review Annexes A thru P for details about Governance, Food, Law Enforcement and Security, Water Treatment, Healthcare, Communications, Shelters and more at www.CatastrophicResponse.org
