The TEPRP is a Multi-Hazards functional plan that sets forth appropriate actions to be taken in response to an emergency or major disaster including potential or imminent threat of any event. The TEPRP aims to facilitate the coordination for the delivery of resources and services necessary to deal with the consequences of an emergency or major disaster.
The TEPRP describes the disaster situation and planning assumptions, concept of operations, response and recovery actions, organizational and specific assignments of responsibilities to the departments and government agencies tasked with local response efforts. The TEPRP conforms to the Disaster Relief Coordination Act, No. 9, of 1990 and the National Operational Guidelines for Disaster Management (NOG).
The TEPRP has three main components namely: Basic plan, Functional Annexes, and Appendices. A basic plan serves as an overview of the government’s approach to emergency management; Annexes describe specific activities critical to emergency preparedness and response; and Appendices support each Annex and contain technical information, details, and methods for use in emergency operations.
