Emergency Operations Plan Development and Review

IPEM Requirement

This course focuses on the local jurisdiction’s Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) according to 29 Illinois Administrative Code 301 (ESDA Rules). During the course, students will review and discuss the required elements of the Basic Plan, Functional Annexes, Hazard Specific Annexes, and the EOP review process. Students will review the Plan Development and Review Document (PDR), the ESDA Rules, and Comprehensive Planning Guidance-101 document from FEMA.
