The Ohio Emergency Operations Plan provides a comprehensive framework for statewide emergency management while:
- Addressing the administrative and operational functions, authorities and responsibilities of the organizations of state government
- Providing a link with the federal, local and private organizations that may be activated to address emergencies in Ohio
- Ensures consistency with current policy guidance and describes the interrelationship with other levels of government
- Continues to evolve, reflecting lessons learned from actual experiences in disasters and ongoing state planning, training and exercise activities
You may download sections of this plan from the EMA website.
