The State will be hosting 7 in-person Integrated Preparedness Planning Workshops (IPPW) specifically designed for government agencies and healthcare coalitions to plan and finalize training and exercise priorities.
The creation of an effective capabilities-based preparedness program begins with an Integrated Preparedness Plan (IPP) which establishes overall preparedness priorities and outlines a multi-year schedule of preparedness activities designed to address those priorities and validate capabilities. The Integrated Preparedness Planning Workshop (IPPW) provides an interactive forum for whole community stakeholders to engage in the creation of the IPP. The IPPW also serves to coordinate preparedness activities across organizations in order to maximize the use of resources and prevent duplication of effort. At the end of the IPPW, program managers will have a clear understanding of specific multi-year preparedness priorities and any available information on previously planned preparedness activities that align to those priorities. Once the preparedness priorities are outlined, stakeholders develop the multi-year Integrated Preparedness Plan (IPP).
