  5. Make data-driven decisions with the reporting features


COOP planning is a preparedness effort to ensure an organization’s Essential Functions (ESFs) continue to be performed during a critical situation. Any event that makes it impossible for employees to work in their regular facility could result in the activation of a COOP plan.

A COOP answers the following basic questions for an organization facing a disruption:

  • Where could/would we go?
  • How would we communicate and what would we say?
  • What do we do and what functions are most important?
  • What equipment is needed to continue our job?

Through insightful analysis, skillful facilitation, and expert guidance, BOLDplanning’s CEMP process helps you develop a big-picture Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP).

Your CEMP will follow guidance from FEMA’s Comprehensive Preparedness Guidance (CPG 101 & 201), the National Response Framework (NRF), and the National Incident Management System (NIMS).
