Alternate Title: All-Hazards Baseline OPLAN

From the Executive Summary: "To ensure the ease of use of the preparedness plan, the Department of the Interior (DOI) has developed an overarching baseline to capture actions and responses that will occur regardless of the scenario which has caused the emergency. For all response activities, this plan will provide the basic information and is supplemented by scenario-specific, standalone plans or appendices. Users of this plan will follow the guidance presented in this All-Hazards Baseline OPLAN [Operational Plan], as well as the annexes and scenario-specific appendices concurrently. This plan is issued in line with Presidential Policy Directive 8 (PPD-8) National Preparedness and related Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) policies. The All-Hazards Baseline OPLAN provides a planning framework for all DOI response, including activities undertaken under DOI authorities, the National Response Framework, the National Disaster Recovery Framework, the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan, the Federal Radiological Emergency Response Plan, and other interagency response plans in which DOI participates. This plan identifies key actions to be implemented to increase readiness for emergencies and to reduce risks. At DOI, all-hazard planning focuses on prevention, protection, mitigation, response, and recovery activities, which include: (1) Activities on DOI lands, at DOI facilities, and in support of DOI-managed resources; (2) Assistance to state and local officials with immediate emergency response; (3) and, Support of the National Preparedness System and interagency response plans, with application of Interior resources on a pre-planned basis. This plan delineates responsibilities of Departmental leadership, bureaus, and offices for all hazards planning and operations. It also provides information on oversight and coordination of emergency management activities."
