Hampton Roads Shelter & Evacuation Gap Planning Project
Evacuation and sheltering is an immensely complicated task, demanding an integrated planning approach in order to effectively coordinate the efforts of the various local, state, federal, and private organizations involved. The project team will be examining the degree of vertical integration of local plans with the COVEOP and the plans of the state agencies that support it in order to ascertain the degree of synergy or conflict between them. The project team will then prepare a Corrective Action Plan (CAP) that documents the strengths and gaps that were identified through interviews, observations, and plan reviews. The CAP will contain recommendations to address any identified gaps or areas for improvement. This plan will follow the same general structure of the utilized by HSEEP. Observations will be grouped by target capability and focus on commonalities and trends. CAP, observations, and recommendations will not be attributed to a specific jurisdiction or agency. Each observation will be followed by an analysis of the observation and recommendation on how to address it. Finally, the team will present the results of the plan reviews, survey interviews, and CAP to the participating jurisdictions and state agencies at a workshop hosted by OVAHS. The objective of this workshop is to build consensus on the recommendations for the region, discuss how to prioritize those recommendations, and to identify options for funding and implementation of those recommendations.

IAEM Federal Facilities Caucus
Although similar, federal emergency managers responsible for emergency preparedness, response, and recovery internal to a Federal entity are different from those more commonly known at the local, county, and state level which actively engage in Presidential Policy Directive #8 operations on the National front. We are guided by different documents specific to the executive, legislative, or judicial branch, including GSA Occupant Emergency Regulations, Federal Continuity Directives, Department of Defense Instructions, and Executive Orders. We are responsible for the safety and continuity of all three branches, including those that participate in nation-wide mitigation, preparedness and response efforts to disasters and emergencies and assist with recovery. In addition, we are also sometimes an employer of significant size within a community, and the loss of our revenues due to disaster could economically damage local communities. In the last few years federal emergency managers have realized the need and benefit of working together, and we will work to create a central community of interest and contact database for federal emergency managers. We desire to work with our local, county, and state emergency management partners to foster better outcomes and share assets, as it is important for us to collaborate. 18
