    First Edition.

    This disaster plan design guide is intended to be used as a reference to aid in disaster plan composition. It is based upon an all-hazards approach. The guide and attached forms are to be viewed as example material and not as “fill-in-the-blank” templates. Due to constantly changing laws and variable jurisdictional procedures, this guide may not contain the most recent emergency response decrees or findings. It is based on the expertise of the authors and incorporates the most useful elements of existing plans and recommended material from federal and state emergency response agencies. This guide may not be comprehensive of all emergency response topics applicable to local jurisdictions. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the user to research local procedures and laws to ensure validity of the final product.

    This publication was supported by Cooperative Agreement Number U90/CCU924253 from CDC. Its contents are soley the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of CDC.
