Structuring Emergency Operations Plans

Chapter 3 of the Comprehensive Preparedness Guide (CPG) 101 (Links to an external site.) states: “Causes of emergencies vary greatly, their potential effects do not.” With this in mind, what are the common characteristics between emergencies and what are common differences that must be addressed to provide an effective response? Explain why adopting emergency plans from other locations and planners is or is not a good practice? Describe the potential pitfalls planners in a municipality or facility are likely to encounter by not engaging in their own emergency planning process.
