The purpose of this assignment is to create the direction, control, and coordination sections of your EOP. This section of the EOP describes the framework for your selected organization’s direction, control, and coordination activities. It will identify who (likely team or individuals) has tactical and operational control of response assets. Additionally, this Direction, Control, and Coordination section will explain the overall Anytown jurisdictional agency coordination systems to support your emergency management efforts, while allowing your organization to retain its own authorities.
Compile the Direction, Control, and Coordination section of the EOP with the following components:
Information Collection, Analysis, and Dissemination (500-750 words)
Describe the critical or essential information common to all operations identified during the planning process. Identify the type of information needed, the source of the information, who uses the information, how the information is shared, the format for providing the information, and any specific times the information is needed. Detail any relevant Anytown prevention and protection assets that must develop the Information Collection, Analysis, and Dissemination section in close cooperation with your selected organization/location. The contents of this section can be provided in a tabular or essay format.
Administration, Finance, and Logistics (300-500 words)
Create general support requirements and the availability of services and chains for various emergencies and your organization’s policies for managing resources. As the lead planner, design a figurative work section(s) as you think it would work for best results and outcomes in the real world. Use real-life organizations or work experiences for further reference.
Plan Development and Maintenance
Explain your Anytown organization’s overall approach to planning and the assignment of plan development and maintenance responsibilities. This section should:
1. Describe the planning process, participants in that process, and how development and revision of different “levels” of the EOP (basic plan, annexes, and SOPs/SOGs) are coordinated during the preparedness phase.
2. Assign responsibility for the overall planning and coordination to a specific position(s).
3. Provide for a regular cycle of training, evaluating, reviewing, and updating of the EOP (250-300 words).
Authorities and References
Provide the legal basis for your emergency operations and activities. Look to real-life similar examples of the organization you have chosen to determine these lists. Feel free to use U.S. Federal, your state, and local examples here. The goal is to understand authorities typical to govern your EOP. This section of the plan shall include:
1. Lists of laws, statutes, ordinances, executive orders, regulations, and formal agreements relevant to emergencies
2. Specification of the extent and limits of the emergency authorities granted to the senior official, including the conditions under which these authorities become effective and when they would be terminated
3. Pre-delegation of emergency authorities (i.e., enabling measures sufficient to ensure that specific emergency-related authorities can be exercised by the elected or appointed leadership or their designated successors)
4. Provisions for COOP and COG (e.g., the succession of decision-making authority and operational control) to ensure that critical emergency functions can be performed
