Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan
A Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) is similar in function and characteristics to an Emergency Operations Plan (EOP). However, where an Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) primarily focuses on jurisdictional response activities, a CEMP differs in its consideration of all phases of Emergency Management. As a foundational document, the CEMP outlines the most critical elements of an entity’s emergency management plan, allowing for the development of supplemental and supporting documents that relate to vulnerability reduction, response and recovery under a common, structured framework. The Pennsylvania State University CEMP informs the public of our general emergency management process and provides the foundation upon which the Commonwealth Campuses build their campus specific plans.
