Emergency Planning Experts

Frank Castro-Wehr, Preparedness Project Manager

Frank Castro-Wehr has developed action guides, relocation maps, and Emergency Operations Plans (EOP) and continuity of operations plans (COOP) and tools to support clients in addition to developing department specific annexes. He has also supported the creation of multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional geographic area response plans to oil and hazardous materials releases, as well as local area all-hazards National Incident Management System (NIMS)-compliant plans.

Mr. Castro-Wehr has worked in collaboration with key public, private, and non-profit sector clients to develop user-friendly and effective emergency plans that focus on management and operational procedures in response to various hazards. With Witt O’Brien’s, he has developed plans in support of EOP management, evacuation response, public sheltering, medically fragile sheltering, hospital evacuation coordination, agricultural incidents, food contamination incidents, and Improvised Explosive Device (IED) incidents. In all cases, the plans were developed in close collaboration with end users, which aligned plan protocols with the entities’ current systems and served as informal initial training on emergency management protocols as they pertained to the client.
