|CHAPTER TWO - PLANNING PROCESS OVERVIEW|
2.01 The planning process is a sequence of steps by which an emergency management plan is prepared.
2.02 The interactive process of planning should result in:
a. an understanding of other agencies roles and responsibilities;
b. strengthening of emergency networks;
c. improved public awareness and education strategies;
d. emergency communications, public warning and other operational arrangements; and
e. a simple written plan.
NOTE: The written plan is only one outcome of the planning process.
