EMERGENCY OPERATIONS PLAN (EOP)
A jurisdiction's emergency operations plan is a document that:
- Assigns responsibility to organizations and individuals for carrying out specific actions at projected times and places in an emergency that exceeds the capability or routine responsibility of any one agency, e.g., the fire department.
- Sets forth lines of authority and organizational relationships, and shows how all actions will be coordinated.
- Describes how people and property will be protected in emergencies and disasters.
- Identifies personnel, equipment, facilities, supplies, and other resources available--within the jurisdiction or by agreement with other jurisdictions--for use during response and recovery operations.
- Identifies steps to address mitigation concerns during response and recovery activities.
As a public document, an EOP also cites its legal basis, states its objectives, and acknowledges assumptions.

COMMUNITY EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM (CERT) PROGRAM
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is a program that educates individuals about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT volunteers can assist others in their community following a disaster when professional responders are not immediately available to help. Below are CERT Basic Training Course Materials:
