Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP)

The State of Oregon Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) combines a number of documents into a single plan. In the plan, four mission areas of emergency management include Mitigation, Preparedness, Response, and Recovery. The mission areas include the core functions of emergency management at the state level, and more detail can be found in the sections below, each of which represents one volume of the CEMP.

Volume I – Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan (NHMP)The NHMP identifies natural hazards and vulnerabilities in Oregon, proposes a strategy to mitigate risk, and addresses recurring disasters and repetitive losses. The Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan is coordinated by the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development and the State Interagency Hazard Mitigation Team.

Volume II – State Preparedness PlanThis plan provides requirements and guidance for each step of the emergency preparedness cycle, including planning, organization, training, exercise, and evaluation and improvement.

Volume III – Emergency Operations Plan (EOP): Below, you can find information on the primary document for the response mission area - the state of Oregon Emergency Operations Plan (EOP). The EOP consists of a plan body and a large number of components. The components of the state EOP include emergency support functions (ESFs), incident annexes, and support annexes. See below for links to files for each of these components. Each ESF is performed by a group of state agencies, with one or two as primary and several supporting. For detailed information, each ESF’s primary and supporting agencies are identified in the ESF Brief Descriptions Job Aid.

Volume IV – State Recovery Plan: The Recovery Plan describes the organization used by the State to assist communities recovering from disasters. State support to recovery operations is divided into seven State Recovery Functions (SRFs).

Support Plans
OEM and partner agencies have developed operational, tactical, and scenario-based documents to address specific hazards, functional areas of assistance, or appropriate procedures in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from disasters. Examples include EOP and Recovery Plan annexes, as well as independent documents such as the Cascadia Playbook and the Volcano Coordination Plans.
