Emergency program self-assessment

To determine future emergency management activities local governments should understand their current capacity. 

The Community Emergency Program Review (CEPR) is a web-based self-assessment tool for local emergency programs to determine its capacity to respond to and recover from emergencies. The CEPR assesses three levels of preparedness (essential, enhanced, and comprehensive) in each of the following categories:

  1. Emergency Program and Legislated Requirements
  2. Hazard, Risk and Vulnerability Analysis
  3. Risk Mitigation
  4. Preparedness
  5. Response
  6. Recovery
  7. Program Evaluation

Completing a CEPR provides a benchmark for measuring and tracking progress. It also provides potential activities to enhance local response capacity and reduce risk to residents. It is an excellent way to monitor performance, gain support and keep stakeholders informed.
