SECTION 1 2 3

Dear Neighbor, We don't know when the next disaster will strike but we know that there can't be a firefighter or first responder on every corner. In fact, after a serious disaster, it may take first responders up to 72 hours to reach your neighborhood. Mayor Vincent Gray and his entire administration are committed to protecting the District's citizens, neighborhoods, and visitors before, during, and after disasters. To achieve this goal, all of our families, neighborhoods, and communities must together be prepared for emergencies. The purpose of this Community Emergency Response Plan (CEMP) is to help you and your community organize and coordinate with each other to prepare for emergencies and help neighbors after a disaster. The District of Columbia (DC) will give you the training and information you need to help you develop this plan but this plan belongs to your community and we need you to work with your community to complete it. We encourage you to use this plan to make your neighborhood, community, and city safer. Thank you for helping make a better DC! Sincerely,

Millicent W. West

Introduction
This is Your Guide
This is your community's plan. Run with it. It will take effort to help your communities be better prepared but your efforts will have a great impact beyond your community to the whole city. HSEMA and Serve DC are here to help with resources, training, and information but the next step is yours!

How to Use this Guide
This guide gives step-by-step instructions on how to develop a Community Emergency Management Plan. There are three sections of this guide: D The Planning Guide explains how the DC government coordinates and supports the development of Community Emergency Management Plans and will guide you through each planning step; D The Template contains a blank plan to fill out that will serve as your plan; and D Annex A provides an overview of the demographics, public safety resources in each Ward, and other information to assist with your planning. The DC Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency (HSEMA) and Serve DC will provide training and support services to help your community complete, exercise, and revise this plan on a routine basis.

Authorities
The Council of the District of Columbia enacted the Homeland Security, Risk Reduction, and Preparedness Act of 2006 which established a homeland security program within the government of the District of Columbia. The Act authorizes the Mayor to actively disseminate homeland security information to the public and engage residents in homeland security emergency planning, and solicit resident input in vulnerability assessment and planning activities and offer periodic training opportunities to members of the public.

Coordination with DC Citizen Corps and Neighborhood Corps
DC Citizen Corps brings together local leaders, citizen volunteers and a network of first responders to increase community involvement in community preparedness and response activities. Neighborhood Corps is the operational element of DC Citizen Corps, whose members receive the training and support to build the necessary skills to safely and effectively assist their community in the event of an emergency. While HSEMA provides the training and support to complete the CEMPs, Serve DC and Neighborhood Corps will integrate the CEMPs into community preparedness and response operations.
Community Emergency Management Planning Guide & Template page 1

Organization and Support
HSEMA and Serve DC will provide support to community volunteers developing each CEMP. The chart below shows how CEMPs are organized.
CERTsand volunteers work together to pia nactivities, •trai n and help neighbors during emergencies Neighborhood Planning Groups

will develop and activate CEMPs in each Ward

HSEMA and Serve DC will provide training and support to the CEMP Program and volunteers

First and foremost, Community volunteers are necessary to develop the plans and provide assistance to the community following a disaster. Community volunteers are the lifeblood of each CEMP. Community volunteers are also needed to help neighbors be prepared for an emergency or participate in training and exercises. To make each CEMP a reality, each Ward or community will form a Neighborhood Planning Group (NPG) of community volunteers. NPGs will develop CEMPs specific to their Ward. NPGs will also work with HSEMA, Serve DC and its Neighborhood Corps program to exercise CEMPs and activate the plan during an emergency. HSEMA will provide guidance to ensure the program is supporting the needs of the community and will: D Support the development and promotion of CEMPs; D Help in the development of CEMP training and exercises; and D Aid Neighborhood Corps in the integration of CEMPs into emergency preparedness and response activities. In an emergency, Serve DC coordinates the deployment of volunteers and manages the Neighborhood Corps program. Serve DC also offers the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training program. The CERT program trains residents in basic disaster response and provides resources which can support the development of CEMPs. Call 202-727-7925 or visit www.Serve.DC.gov for more information or to sign up for training.

Planning Guide
This is where we need you and your neighbors. This section outlines recommended planning steps for developing a CEMP. Use this part of the plan to think about your community - citizens with special skills, residents who may need extra assistance during an emergency, or places that you could use to store supplies. '

Step 1: Involve your community.
Organize a Community Meeting Invite neighbors to attend a meeting to discuss community preparedness. Consider proposing the development of a CEMP during a planned civic association meeting or other community forum. At this meeting: D Inform participants about community preparedness; D Review the steps for developing a CEMP; D Identify interested volunteers; D Establish a timeline; and D Identify other organizations or community members that might be willing to participate (local merchants, civic associations, churches, Area Neighborhood Commissioners (ANCs), etc.) Once you have had your first meeting and have begun the organization your plan, establish a timeline for completing the plan. of

Step 2: Determine plan goals.
Clear goals will explain how the plan will benefit the community. examples of specific goals are: Some

D To enable neighborhood teams to prepare for and respond effectively to an event until first responders arrive. D To improve community preparedness for emergencies by improving neighbor-to-neighbor information.

Step 3: Define community boundaries, needs, and resources.
Define Community Boundaries Define the scope of your community and establish neighborhood boundaries. For example, you may want to divide the Ward into smaller areas.

Planning Tip: Use the chart below to determine what type of help your neighbors might need in an emergency.
Additional Steps

Special needs and Other Access and Functional Needs Visually impaired

May be reluctant to leave familiar surroundings when the request for evacuation comes from a stranger. A guide dog could become confused or disoriented in a disaster. People who are blind or partially sighted may have to depend on others to lead them, as well as their dog, to safety during a disaster. May need to make special arrangements to receive warnings. May need special assistance to get to a shelter.

I Hearing

impaired

Mobility impaired/Homebound Single working parent Non-English speaking persons

May need help to plan for disasters and emergencies. May need assistance planning for and responding to emergencies. Community and cultural groups may be able to help keep people informed. May need to make arrangements for transportation. Should take special precautions to have an adequate emergency food supply. Should know the location and availability of more than one facility if dependent on a dialysis machine or other lifesustaining equipment or treatment. May need help responding to emergencies and getting to a shelter. Should be registered in the Alzheimer's Association Safe Return Program. Sheltering for people with Animals may be in a different location.

Ask Questions
Use this process to ask questions of yourself, your family, as well as your neighbors and your community. It is always worthwhile to take the opportunity to talk about preparedness with your community.

Step 4: Decide how you will operate.
Select an Emergency Meeting Site
Establish a neighborhood meeting site or "Command Post." The site should be readily known and accessible to emergency vehicles and offer shelter if possible for keeping people warm / cool. Pick a backup site where you can meet if the first site is not available.

Define How You Win Organize
What is the best way to organize and manage the CEMP? Emergency managers use the Incident Command System (ICS) to organize during an emergency. You can learn about ICS by reviewing the Federal Emergency Management Aqencv's independent study materials available for free at: http://training .fema .gov /EMIWebIIS/IS 100b.asp.

Establish Plan Activation Procedures
The CEMP may be activated in the event of an lncldent, at the direction of the Neighborhood Planning Group, or in response to a request from Serve DC. Activation involves notification of all team members through the quickest way possible. This may be via phone or email, but if those systems don't work, activation may be done through knocking on doors. Upon plan activation, all members should meet at the deslqnated staging/meeting site.

Determine How You Will Communicate
Communications with the team members must be established. There is no guarantee that cell phones or email will work, so the team must be prepared to communicate in other ways too. A contact list of all team members should be built that list contact information and addresses so that team members can communicate by phone, email, or by knocking on doors. In addition, collect contact information for residents and businesses in the community. This way the members of the community can be contacted before, during, and after an incident and given important information like

Determine Training and Exercise Goals
Like any team, it's critical to practice together in order to know how you work together. Plan team drills, setting up a command post, and securing supplies. You can also work with HSEMA, Serve DC, and Neighborhood Corps to identify opportunities to participate in DC government sponsored exercises and drills. There are many opportunities for members of the NPG to receive training. This includes CERT training, Neighborhood Corps training, and also specific
Community Emergency Management Planning Guide & Template page 8

community training, like sign language. Please contact HSEMA and Serve DC for specific training opportunities.

Step 5: Complete the plan.
Once you have considered all of the questions above, use the CEMP Template to complete the plan.

Step 6: Integrate the plan with Neighborhood Corps.
Once the plan is completed, contact Serve DC's Neighborhood Corps program office so that your CEMP can be integrated into the community preparedness and response plans in support of the District Response Plan.
