  17. Franklin County Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan The 2012 updated Franklin County Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan was approved by the State of Ohio and FEMA and adopted by the City of Columbus, Franklin County Commissioners and many local jurisdictions. The plan was originally implemented in 2007 to minimize the area’s vulnerability to dangerous natural disasters. The plan update, required every five years, is a key pre-condition for future FEMA funding for hazard mitigation projects by participating local jurisdictions. BRIEF TO FCAG

  18. 2012 Grant Awards BRIEF TO FCAG

  19. 2012 Grant Awards • The Federal Government Initiated A New Grant Process Starting with the Fiscal Year 2012 State Homeland Security Grant Program • For the first time, the FY 2012 grant process was competitive and States were required to coordinate and disseminate the guidance. • Ohio required that all projects submitted for consideration meet the following criteria: • Regional capability comprised of and/or supportive of multiple jurisdictions within Ohio • Capability that is deployable/sharable within the region, state and nation, and commitment to do so • Must directly support at least one of the core capabilities outlined in the Guidance BRIEF TO FCAG

  20. 2012 Grant Awards • The core capabilities were broken into three priority levels, or tiers: • Sustainmentof existing regional core capabilities developed/enhanced through past HSGP funding or through local/state funding (Tier 1, highest priority) • Enhancing capabilities to close identified gaps in regional capabilities (Tier 2, second priority) • Building new capabilities to address areas previously not addressed (Tier 3, third priority) • On August 20, 2012, FCEM&HS submitted the following grant applications to Ohio EMA for consideration meeting the state deadline.

Seven local districts participated in the project. • FCEM&HS also completed the New Albany Plain Local Schools Emergency Operations Plan Project which improved the district’s Emergency Operations Plan and created a model for other school districts. BRIEF TO FCAG

  27. FCEM&HS Regional JEOC Functional Exercise BRIEF TO FCAG

  28. Regional JEOC Functional Exercise • Franklin County Emergency Management & Homeland Security Held a Regional Emergency Operations Center Functional Exercise on November 15, 2012 to validate the Emergency Operation Plans (EOPs) of both Franklin and Fairfield Counties and evaluate current response concepts, plans, and capabilities for a response to a terrorist incident. The exercise was developed and evaluated using objectives that were identified by a Central Ohio Regional Planning Team and selected from the State of Ohio’s Terrorism Exercise and Evaluation Manual (EEM). BRIEF TO FCAG

  29. Regional JEOC Functional Exercise • The State of Ohio Terrorism EEM has been cross-walked to the exercise evaluation methodology required by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (US DHS) for exercises conducted under the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP). • The exercise was based on multiple attacks executed concurrently at three schools, during Football Friday Night. Each attack resulted in numerous causalities, fires, primary/secondary device explosions and hostage situations. BRIEF TO FCAG

  33. Regional JEOC Functional Exercise Exercise Objectives: • Critical Resource Logistics and Distribution: Demonstrate the capability to identify, dispatch, mobilize/demobilizes and accurately track/record available critical resources throughout all incident management phases as outlined in the jurisdiction’s standard operating procedures (SOPs) and emergency operations plans (EOPs). • Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Management: Demonstrate the ability to activate, staff, and manage an Emergency Operations Center to coordinate and support a multi-agency response to a catastrophic incident. BRIEF TO FCAG

  34. Regional JEOC Functional Exercise Exercise Objectives: • Emergency Public Information and Warning: Demonstrate the capability to develop, coordinate, and disseminate accurate alerts and information to the media and the public during an emergency as outlined in the jurisdiction’s standard operating procedures (SOPs) and emergency operations plans (EOPs). BRIEF TO FCAG

  35. Regional JEOC Functional Exercise • According to the Exercise Evaluation Team, FCEM&HS met all of the evaluated objectives, and the Functional Exercise provided an opportunity to demonstrate the effectiveness of EOPs, Standard Operating Guidelines (SOGs), and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). The Franklin County JEOC performed extremely well and the Functional Exercise validated the Franklin County JEOC’s ability to respond quickly and coordinate a complex emergency response to a disaster. • Subsequent exercises should test specific improvements instituted as a result of this exercise and should include a focus on additional drills and exercises to routinely test and enhance FCEM&HS EOPs. BRIEF TO FCAG

  36. Regional JEOC Functional Exercise Exercise Strengths: • With regards to the actual JEOC evaluation, there were several positive areas identified by the evaluator. Most notable was the overall representation of various government and nonprofit organizations. Chain of command was also noted as a positive for the exercise. It was clear to the evaluator that Director Pannell was in charge of operations and did an outstanding job of keeping Commissioners, the County Administrator and other elected officials updated with appropriate information. A final positive noted by the evaluator was the overall accommodations provided by the FCEMHS JEOC. The overall environment and technology allows for a more than adequate work space. BRIEF TO FCAG

  37. Regional JEOC Functional Exercise Exercise Strengths: • FCEM&HS displayed an exhaustive list of available resources, locations and contact information. • FCEM&HS has invested significant resources to updating their respective Joint Emergency Operations Centers. • The Evaluation Team stated the FCEM&HS Public Information Officer acted in a professional manner and did a commendable job in preparing FCEM&HS Director for the initial press conference. • The FCEM&HS Public Information Officer used and understood the basic components of managing a social media response. BRIEF TO FCAG

  38. Regional JEOC Functional Exercise Exercise Opportunities for Improvement: • Franklin County Emergency Management and Homeland Security would benefit from researching the appropriateness of updating its telecommunications bandwidth. • Provide adequate manpower to ensure significant events logs are kept up to date in WebEOC. This will help to maintain a consistent Common Operational Picture. • Provide multiple training opportunities for all JEOC personnel to include WebEOC, phone routing and sharing of classified information. • Consider available avenues to ensure county Emergency Management and Homeland Security officials have access to appropriate event intelligence, both before and during the event. • While public information staff in both counties used and understand Twitter, increasing education and understanding of effective social media strategies would benefit future, real world response efforts. BRIEF TO FCAG

  39. IRM Decision Maker Workshop BRIEF TO FCAG

  40. IRM Decision Maker Workshop • FCEM&HS held the first Decision Maker Workshop on February 26, 2013 for elected officials and decision makers from throughout the county to discuss the risks, capabilities, and gaps impacting Franklin County. • Recommended actions were provided based on the results and were accepted by Mayor Coleman on behalf of the City of Columbus, Paula Brooks on behalf of Franklin County Commissioners and Dana McDaniel on behalf of the FCEM&HS Executive Committee. Recommended actions include: • Hold Annual Decision Maker meeting to review IRM progress and continue to encourage, educate and generate more involvement and support from elected officials BRIEF TO FCAG
