Integrated Preparedness Plan Template

A training and exercise program should be based on a set of strategic, high-level priorities selected by an organization's elected and appointed officials.  These priorities guide the development of a Integrated Preparedness Plan.

Organizations can use this Integrated Preparedness Plan Template to document program priorities and schedule of events.  If organizations would like assistance with this template, please contact the Engagement Section Chief, 1-800-347-0488.
