State and Local All Hazards Emergency Operations Planning

Published on AidPage by IDILOGIC on Jun 24, 2005

Administered by:

US Federal Government Agency (see all agencies)
Department Of Homeland Security
CFDA #: 97.051

Purpose of this program:

The purpose of the S/L Emergency Ops Planning program is to supplement and assist State and local efforts to prepare themselves to respond to emergencies or disasters including any that may be caused by terrorist attacks using conventional means or Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). Such preparedness requires an extraordinary level of inter-service and inter-jurisdictional planning and coordination. The program provides grants to the States to encourage the development or updating of comprehensive, all-hazard emergency management plans by the States and by local governments. The requisite planning base supports and promotes efforts to establish lasting working relationships and facilitates the development of a common incident command system, general availability of interoperable communications, and effective mutual aid. In partnership with the Federal Government, strong emergency management and emergency services organizations at the State and local levels ensure the continuance of a comprehensive national emergency management system for disasters or emergencies resulting from natural disasters or accidental or man-made events.
