  • I’ll go through about 5 slides here fairly quickly to give you an idea of what the new plan looks like.I know this looks like an organizational chart, and it is. It’s an ICS organizational chart, in fact. It shows you how the state will organize to manage disasters once the new plan goes into effect. But, this is also how our plan is organized. Each of these blocks is a function and each function has a section of plan dedicated to it that explains what its role and responsibilities are and dictates which agencies do things that help this function achieve its goal.The State Coordinating Officer is the Director of DEMA. The Legal Affairs Officer is generally someone from the Attorney General’s Office, but in certain incidents involving the National Guard there may also be someone from the Guard’s Judge Advocate General’s office, for example. The Military Support Officer coordinates the National Guard’s assistance to everyone else, and also provides a point of coordination between the state and any federal military forces that might be deployed to Delaware.We also have what is known as a COOP/COG Officer. COOP stands for continuity of operations, COG stands for continuity of government. This role is responsible for ensuring state and local government agencies can continue to function in the event their primary facilities are destroyed, or they suffer a catastrophic loss of personnel. I’m not going to go through all of these, but you can kind of get the idea I believe. What you need to take from this is that the new plan is structured identically to how we respond to and recover from disasters. There’s no longer the need to translate between a planning format and the way things are done in the field.

DEOP 2009 Overview DEOP 2009 Overview Presentation Transcript

  • Overview of the 2009Delaware Emergency Operations Plan
  • Agenda
    Module 1 – Emergency Planning History
    Module 2 – DEOP Changes
    Module 3 - DEOP Structure
    Module 4 – DEOP ICS Framework
    Module 5 – Executive Order # 13
    2
  • MODULE 1
    History of Emergency Operations Planning
    3
  • Background – Plan History (1st Gen)
    1950s – 1980s
    Originally “Cold War”/Nuclear attack oriented
    Functionally-based Annexes
    Annex A – Direction and Control
    Annex B – Warning
    Annex C – Communications
    Annex D – Damage Assessment
    Annex E – Radiological Protection
    8 states still use this format (TX, OR, NV, HI)
    4
  • Background – Plan History (2nd Gen)
    1992 – Today
    Derived from FEMA R-IX project to develop plan for catastrophic EQ in California - 1987
    Emergency Support Function (ESF) Based
    ESF 1 – Transportation
    ESF 2 – Communications
    ESF 3 – Public Works
    Lead + Support Agencies
    38 States Using This Now + 3 Hybrid
    5
  • ESF Design Shortfalls
    Must translate between ESF & ICS
    Planners speak ESF, Field speaks ICS
    ESFs do not expand/contract to accommodate incident requirements
    Some ESFs have gotten bloated with unrelated functions
    ESF doesn’t allow for integration of new response and recovery requirements efficiently
    No real/defined structure to ESF operations
    Many states & most locals don’t have the infrastructure to operate in an ESF environment
    6
  • Existing ESF Complexity
    ESF 1 – Transportation
    Roads, bridges, airports, railways, etc.
    Provision of vehicles
    Evacuation Support
    ESF 2 – Communications
    Communications infrastructure
    Provision of emergency commo support
    7
  • Existing ESF Complexity – ESF 6
    Federal ESF 6
    Shelter & Mass Care in 1992 (ARC/FEMA)
    Mass Care, Emergency Assistance, Housing and Human Services (FEMA)
    With NRF, now includes:
    Evacuation support
    Support to special needs populations
    Pet Care
    Family Reunification
    Disaster assistance registration + portions of IA
    Donations Support
    Volunteer Integration
    8
  • Existing ESF Complexity – ESF 3
    ESF 3 – Public Works & Engineering
    Power Restoration
    Debris Removal
    Temporary Housing
    Roofing
    Emergency Access
    Structural Safety Assessment
    Ice & Water
    9
    Private Sector + DEO
    DelDOT
    ARC/VOAD/DSS
    DEMA/Local EMA
    DelDOT
    Local CE + SFMO
    DNG, DEMA, Etc.
  • MODULE 2
    2009
    DEOP Changes
    10
  • New DEOP (3rd Gen)
    All-Hazard, Strategic, ICS-Based Plan
    Two years in development
    Completely rewritten from the ground up
    First of its kind in the nation
    Volume I (792 pages)
    Base Plan
    5 Sections
    Incident Management
    Operations Section
    Planning and Intelligence Section
    Logistics Section
    Finance and Administration Section
    Volume II (350+/- pages)
    Hazard-Specific Annexes
    11
  • Benefits of Using ICS Model
    Same model for planning & operations
    No need to translate between “ESF” and “ICS”
    ICS Model is easily learned, nearly universal, widely trained
    Allows for better correlation between EOC and field operations
    ICS is mandated by NIMS for field operations
    Allows for better agency understanding of emergency response role(s)
    Allows for (relatively) seamless State/JFO integration
    12
  • Benefits of Using ICS Model
    Structure & management of DEOP is based on ICS principles
    Expandable and collapsible
    Group Lead based on nature of incident
    No Group/Function reports to more than 1 person
    Span of control (3-7 subordinates) is maintained
    Common terminology
    New functions integrated seamlessly
    13
  • Lead vs. Support Agencies
    Lead Agency is agency with statutory authority over function or is “best suited” to lead initial response.
    Exists primarily for planning purposes
    Operationally flexible, based upon nature/scope of incident
    Law Enforcement Group
    DSP – Lead Agent
    Parks & Rec (DNREC) may be lead for incidents in State Parks
    Support Agencies
    All others with major, tangible role in function
    Removal of “everything and the kitchen sink” taskings
    14
  • Delaware State Police under ESF
    • Tasked in Several Different ESFs
    • ESF 1 Transportation – Assistance with traffic enforcement
    • ESF 3 Public Works – Assistance with traffic control, escorts, etc.
    • ESF 4 Firefighting – Assistance with traffic control and scene control, security
    • ESF 6 Mass Care – Assistance with traffic control and security
    • ESF 8 Public Health – Assistance with security, investigations, medical evacuation
    • ESF 9 Search & Rescue – Assistance w/ SAR activities
    • ESF 10 HazMat – Assistance with traffic control, evacuation
    • ESF 11 Agriculture – Security for animal shelters/fairgrounds
    • ESF 12 Energy – Assistance with traffic control (outages)
    • ESF 13 Law Enforcement – Lead Agency
    • ESF 22 Insurance – Security for damaged facilities, access control, escorts into damaged areas
    • ESF 24 – Evacuation – Traffic management, security, etc.
    15
  • Delaware State Police under ICS
    Tasked Lead Function + 2 Support Functions
    Law Enforcement Group – Lead Agency
    Emergency Medical Services Group – Aeromedical Evacuation
    Fire & Rescue Group – Aerial support for SAR Activities
    16
  • Version Control
    Live Version Online – Secure Access
    DEMA Planning Portal
    Updates conducted as required
    ESCs notified via Outlook Distribution List
    Version Control
    17
  • Terminology Changes
    Operational Areas
    Three Counties, City of Wilmington
    Emergency Services Coordinator
    New term, primary POC within Dept/Agency
    Emergency Service Coordinators Area (ESC)
    Replaces “ESF Area”
    Planning & Intelligence, or “Planning”
    Replaces “TAC” or “Technical Assessment Center”
    18
  • ESF vs. Functional Groups
    The concept of “ESF” no longer exists in Delaware
    Operational Groups are referred to as “Functional Groups”
    Most changes for other agencies involve only terminology
    “Public Health & Medical Group” vs. “ESF 8”
    ICS Terminology
    19
  • Groups vs. Units
    Units are individuals or single functions involving one or two agencies
    Groups are collections of individuals or functions performing multiple tasks to carry out a specific function.

  • Disclaimer
    Each box represents a function, not a person
    All functions are performed to one degree or another in every incident
    For small incidents, one person or small group may perform multiple functions
    For larger incidents, more people are used to flesh out the structure
    For catastrophic incidents, multiple people may be doing the same function
