There may be times in which a jurisdiction or agency has to respond to an incident that impacts the jurisdiction or agency itself. It is during these situations that having a continuity of operations plan (COOP) is vital. This workshop aimed to help jurisdictions and agencies develop or improve their COOP plans and to integrate necessary elements across jurisdictional and agency lines.
