ODPS Ohio Emergency Management Agency Ohio Integrated Preparedness Planning

Ohio EMA, on an annual basis, conducts an Integrated Preparedness Planning Workshop (IPPW). At this workshop, county, state and partner agencies share their planning, training, and exercising schedules for the next three years. This information is taken and compiled in to a multi-year Integrated Preparedness Planning (IPP) plan. The Multi-Year Integrated Preparedness Planning Workshop (IPPW) is a roadmap for counties and state agencies to support each other and maximize efforts through a coordinated training and exercise program. As a result of FEMA updates to the Homeland Security Exercise & Evaluation Guidelines, the IPPW replaces the previously named Multi-Year Training and Exercise Workshop. The Integrated Preparedness Plan (IPP) is a living document that will be reviewed and updated on an annual basis through the IPPW process. Completing the online IPPW survey and reviewing the published results on the Ohio EMA website, will create an avenue for counties and agencies to partner in training and exercise initiatives. The IPPW process is also intended to help strengthen relationships with potential partners in preparedness and response.
