The CEMP describes the system that will be used by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from an emergency or disaster. It also identifies and assigns specific areas of responsibility for coordinating resources to support the Commonwealth’s response to an emergency or disaster. The CEMP is an all hazards plan, developed to address the Commonwealth’s unique natural and human-caused hazards.
The CEMP was developed with critical input from stakeholders involved in the Commonwealth’s Comprehensive Emergency Management Program (CEMP). It was drafted in accordance with relevant federal and state laws, and conforms to federal guidance, including the Comprehensive Preparedness Guide (CPG-101), National Response Framework (NRF), and National Incident Management System (NIMS). The CEMP also complies with the Emergency Management Standard published by the Emergency Management Accreditation Program (EMAP).
