Workshop Description

The annual Integrated Preparedness Planning Workshop (IPPW) provides the opportunity to review jurisdiction's or agency's core capability gaps and provides the information needed to create and update our multi-year plan to address those gaps.

We encourage all jurisdictions and agencies to participate in this workshop, as it provides an opportunity to discuss and hold a conversation on preparedness activities and goals. This workshop is designed as a collaboration forum to maximize local, state, tribal, and federal resources and focus in the emergency management preparedness activities.

Workshop Objectives

At the IPPW, stakeholders identify preparedness activities that will assist the jurisdiction or agency in closing gaps and addressing the priorities identified as well as identify target capabilities to focus on for each fiscal year.


The outcome of the IPPW is the Integrated Preparedness Plan which lays out preparedness activities throughout the region.



Participant Selection

This event is for county, city, and tribal emergency managers; state agency liaisons; exercise coordinators; training coordinators; regional coordinators; and emergency planners.
