The Oregon Office of Emergency Management has created several toolkits to help local and tribal emergency managers with developing continuity of operations plans and communicating hazard-specific disaster event information.
Continuity of Operations Planning
An important aspect of emergency management is the ability to continue government operations when impacted by an emergency or disaster. To help agencies develop continuity of operations plans, Oregon has a contract to provide (at no cost to eligible organizations) a consistent Web-based platform for continuity of operations planning (COOP).
The Continuity Guidance Circulars produced by FEMA (https://www.fema.gov/continuity-guidance-circular-cgc) are the primary reference for COOP for state, local, and tribal emergency management programs. FEMA also offers free online independent study training about COOP through the Emergency Management Institute (https://training.fema.gov/).
The state of Oregon also has a pricing agreement for additional services, such as training, exercises and planning assistance. Use of these services will incur additional costs to eligible organizations. Additional information about the pricing agreement is available under contract number 5776 in OregonBuys (https://oregonbuys.gov/bso/).
