Emergency Operations Planning

The foundation for any entity’s emergency management program is its emergency operations plan (EOP). The EOP sets the policy and process by which an organization, jurisdiction, or community’s people, resources, and capabilities are leveraged to prepare for, respond to, and recover from an incident of critical significance. A properly developed and maintained EOP or comprehensive emergency management plan (CEMP) can save lives, time, and money and promote a smooth transition to recovery.

Witt O’Brien’s has decades of experience in emergency management planning and program development for the energy; transportation; health care; local, state, and federal government; higher education; and other sectors and is intimately familiar with all aspects and phases of emergency management. In partnership with our clients, we produce succinct, clear, understandable, and actionable plans that will directly impact the resiliency of their organizations.

Our planners ensure that all deliverables are aligned with the latest state and federal guidance and best practices from the National Response Framework, National Incident Management System (NIMS), CPG 101, NFPA 1600, and Emergency Management Accreditation Program Standards, as well as cover all mission areas defined in the National Preparedness Goal.
