To provide continued support during COVID-19, FEMA’s National Continuity Programs will moderate a Webinar on the Continuity of Operations (COOP) Planning for State and Local Governments. 

The two-part webinar event is being hosted by NACo and moderated by FEMA.

COOP Planning during the COVID-19 pandemic will help your government to:

  • Identify essential government functions
  • Plan for operations with a reduced workforce
  • Recommend areas in which to build staff redundancy
  • Establish a devolution plan should staff become sick
  • Consider the impacts of reduced revenue on programs and services
  • Prepare for a traditional disaster scenario during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Develop planning assumptions for an effective 'return to normal' based on your timeline

Please join one or both of these ‘how-to’ discussions on developing new or modifying existing COOP plans for COVID-19 pandemic conditions. For more information, please read attached webinar details or register at
