  3. Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP)

In Washington State, emergency management offices have numerous emergency plans. Our two most overarching plans, are the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) and the Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP).

Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP)

A comprehensive emergency management plan is a basic plan with elements which address all natural and manmade disasters to which a political subdivision is vulnerable. The comprehensive emergency management plan specifies the purpose, organization, responsibilities of the various agencies involved in disaster response and recovery. These responsibilities are broken down into what is referred to as ESFs (Emergency Support Functions).
