Local Emergency Operations Plans (LEOP)

A Local Emergency Operations Plan allows individual communities to coordinate disaster response.  

Local Emergency Operations Plans must be submitted to Regional Planning Commissions annually after town meeting day, but before May 1st.   The individual that certifies adoption of the LEOP must be trained in ICS 100 or 402.

Local Hazard Mitigation Plans (LHMP)

Local Hazard Mitigation Plans are used to identify policies and actions that can be implemented over the long term to reduce risk and future losses. Mitigation Plans form the foundation for a community's long-term strategy to reduce disaster losses and break the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage. The LHMP is valid for five years from the date of final FEMA approval.
