Perses Consulting is leading the development of Asheville, North Carolina’s Emergency Operations Plan (EOP), and Continuity of Operations (COOP) Plan, and providing subsequent exercises highlighting the EOP and COOP Plan. Perses Consulting will be coordinating with City leaders and stakeholders to appropriately and accurately reflect the City’s organization structure and scope of responsibilities to provide them with a modernized EOP. The EOP will be an all-hazard approach with separate annexes for specific hazards from their Community Risk Assessment. In conjunction with the development of the EOP, Perses is also leading the development of the COOP Plan, coordinating with the same stakeholders making sure that all 11 components of a COOP Plan are incorporated to develop an all-hazard approach.
Along with writing these plans, Perses Consulting is also leading the training and exercises for these plans. The team will be developing City specific training with worksheets and workshops for both the EOP and COOP plans. For all exercises, Perses will be leading and developing After-Action Reports (AAR) and Improvement Plans (IP).
In addition to the online training development, Perses Consulting is also designing, developing, conducting, and evaluating a series of exercises to support the development of the EOP and COOP Plan, and evaluate the final products. As part of our standard process, we are integrating planning workshops and tabletop exercises into plan development to baseline and ground truth all products.
