The Local Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) guidance serves as a planning tool to assist the Commonwealth’s jurisdictions in revising and updating the EOP. Consideration was given to the Comprehensive Planning Guide 101 version 2, The National Response Framework, The Commonwealth of Virginia Emergency Operations Plan. Additionally, the guidance below incorporates Title 44 Virginia Emergency Services and Disaster Laws.
