Community-Specific IEMCs place emphasis on a specific jurisdiction’s risks, response capability, Core Capabilities, and short-term recovery issues. They are tailored to fit the jurisdictions and are based on a selected hazard scenario. Course methodologies include classroom instruction, group planning sessions, and exercises that allow for structured decision-making in a learning environment. A key outcome of this IEMC is to provide participants with the awareness and skills to carry out emergency plans, policies, and procedures related to disaster response and assist with making the transition from response activities to short-term recovery. See page 40 for examples of participant positions.
Steps in the Community-Specific IEMC Application Process:
• The Chief Elected Official of the jurisdiction submits a letter of request, addressing the below-specified information, to his/her respective state Office of Emergency Management.
• If the state Office of Emergency Management supports the request, it will attach its letter of endorsement outlining how acceptance of this request will meet state emergency management objectives.
• If endorsed by the state emergency management office, the application is forwarded to the appropriate FEMA Regional Office for review. The FEMA Regional Office includes its endorsement for each jurisdiction’s application. If more than one jurisdiction is submitted, the Region will prioritize its recommendations.
• Applications must be received at EMI from the FEMA Regional Office no later than January 15 each year. Between January 15 and February 15, EMI staff reviews the applications and ranks them based on Regional priority and information provided in the requests. Final selection is made by March 1.
• By March 31, communities that have been accepted will be notified, as well as communities that are not accepted. Appropriate FEMA Regional Offices and state emergency management offices are also notified.
• Communities that are not selected and want to be reconsidered for the following year must re-apply.
Communities must include the following information in their application:
• Population of jurisdiction.
• A brief description of the government structure (include organizational chart); clarify if the request is for a single jurisdiction (e.g., one city) or a combination of jurisdictions (e.g., a city and county).
• A narrative that includes the status of emergency management in the community, including past disaster history.
• Emergency management training and exercise history.
• Specific hazards facing the jurisdiction and/or specific hazards requested to be addressed in the IEMC.
• Any major national events or special events planned for the jurisdiction, such as sporting events, conventions, etc.
• Specific core capabilities that need to be addressed in the course and/or exercise components.
• The community emergency management objective(s) that will be accomplished through participation in an IEMC Program.
