Overview

In each community, several individuals and agencies work together to write and practice carrying out the local emergency management plan. These include elected officials, governmental departments (example: county road and bridge division), agencies (example: county sheriff's office), and other groups (example: Red Cross). The emergency management plan has four parts: a basic plan, an emergency support function, and annexes and standard operating procedures. This plan uses the National Incident Management System principles and concepts throughout the entire process. (2 Pages)
