*NEW FOR 2018* The Local Emergency Management Plan outlines new standards for local emergency management plans and will replace the LEOP for plan submission in 2019. Towns now have the option of submitting any format plan so long as the plan has all required elements and a completed adoption form. Templates are also available in both "long" and "short" format.
The Local Emergency Operations Plan allows individual communities to coordinate disaster response. LEOPs must be submitted to Regional Planning Commissions annually after town meeting day, but before May 1st.
The Emergency Preparedness Workbook contains information on how to prepare for disasters and how individuals and their families can stay safe during an emergency event, or weather emergency. Email us for a hard copy for yourself, or order multiple copies for local distribution.
The Resource Typing Library Tool (RTLT) is an online catalog of all NIMS resource typing definitions and job titles/position qualifications that have been released by FEMA. NIMS resource types provide the common language for the mobilization of resources (equipment, teams, units, and personnel) prior to, during, and after major incidents. NIMS resource types are viewable online, downloadable in PDF format.
