Continuity of Operations (COOP) Planning for State and Local Governments

Thursday, May 28, 3:30-5:30 pm (part 1 of 2) - Hosted by NACo, moderated by FEMA


Please join FEMA and association partners on, May 28, for the first of a two-part webinar on

COOP Planning for States and Local Governments.

Part I: Introduction to COOP Planning – Thursday, May 28, 3:30 – 5:00pm

Part II: Explores more advanced COOP concepts – Thursday, June 18, 3:30 – 5:00pm


COOP Planning during the COVID-19 pandemic will help your government to:

  • Identify essential government functions
  • Plan for operations with a reduced workforce
  • Recommend areas in which to build staff redundancy
  • Establish a devolution plan should staff become sick
  • Consider the impacts of reduced revenue on programs and services
  • Prepare for a traditional disaster scenario during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Develop planning assumptions for an effective ‘return to normal’ based on your timeline


We hope you or your staff can join this how-to discussion on developing new

or modifying existing COOP plans for COVID-19 pandemic conditions.
