Local Emergency Operations Plan

Local Emergency Operations Plan

Local Emergency Operations Plans must be submitted to Regional Planning Commissions annually after town meeting day, but before May 1st.  Completion of the Base Plan is the only requirement - all appendices are optional.

In order to certify adoption of the LEOP, that individual must be trained in ICS 100 or 402.  ICS 100 is available online at:http://www.training.fema.gov/IS/NIMS.aspx  Classroom offerings for ICS 100 and ICS 402 can be found at: www.vtemergencytraining.org

*7/9/15 update - A new appendix, B7 Animal Resources, has been added!  This document is meant to encourage consideration and planning for animals in municipalities by determining such things as where they can shelter, who can offer emergency veterinary care, and where there are animals at high risk during disasters.
