Developing an Emergency Operations Plan


The emergency operations plan (EOP) is intended to provide guidelines and some pre-configured pathways or solutions intended to assist emergency responders in rapidly assessing emergency situations, choosing or developing a response plan, and coordinating the various organizations and “actors” during the response to an event…as well as even helping with setting up recovery plans. Please describe how an EOP should be developed, and what its major components are. In a final paragraph, please describe some of the limitations to an EOP.
