The PHHP (public health and health care preparedness) planning component provides for a systematic framework to develop, implement, evaluate and improve plans across the entire emergency management cycle. Effective planning translates law, policy, strategy, protocols and capabilities into specific tasks and courses of action to minimize death, injury and illness. Plans are vertically and horizontally integrated with appropriate departments, agencies and jurisdictions. Where appropriate, emergency plans incorporate a mechanism for requesting state and federal assistance and include a clearly delineated process for seeking and requesting assistance from appropriate agencies. Planning is a key part of the preparedness cycle, which also includes organizing, training, equipping, exercising, evaluating and taking corrective actions to systematically enhance readiness.
