The Comprehensive Preparedness Guide (CPG 101)
This Comprehensive Preparedness Guide, CPG 101, expands on the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA’s) efforts to provide guidance about response and recovery planning to State, Territorial, Tribal, and Local governments. It also extends those planning concepts into the prevention and protection mission areas. Some predecessor material can be traced back to the 1960s-era Federal Civil Defense Guide. Long-time emergency management practitioners also will recognize the influence of Civil Preparedness Guide 1-8, Guide for the Development of State and Local Emergency Operations Plans, and State and Local Guide (SLG) 101, Guide for All-Hazards Emergency Operations Planning, in this document.
The Spokane County Multi-Jurisdiction All Hazard Mitigation Plan (Mitigation Plan) provides policy guidance for hazard mitigation for Spokane County. It identifies goals, objectives, actions and initiatives for local government that will reduce injury and damage from natural and man made hazards. Learn more about the Mitigation Plan.
Emergency Coordination Center (ECC)
