Example Emergency Operations Plan Introduction


This excerpt from Flagler County Health Department's emergency operations plan is a strong and detailed example of a plan introduction.  It incorporates a description of the purpose of the plan and how public health preparedness is approached in the jurisdiction, including the planning process and planning team composition.

This excerpt was submitted as evidence for Goal 1 of a Project Public Health Ready (PPHR) application and can be used as an example by other agencies applying for PPHR recognition or seeking to improve their emergency plans.
