Comprehensive Emergency Management Plans (CEMP)



  • A comprehensive emergency management plan is a written basic plan with elements which address all natural and man-made emergencies and disasters to which a political subdivision is vulnerable. The comprehensive emergency management plan specifies the purpose, organization, responsibilities and facilities of agencies and officials of the political subdivision in the mitigation of, preparation for, response to, and recovery from emergencies and disasters. (Paraphrased from WAC 118-30-030 (9))
