Continuity of Operations

The Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security, in collaboration with other state agencies, periodically updates a Statewide All-Hazards Continuity of Operations Plans (COOP). The ultimate goal of Continuity Planning is to ensure that the State of Connecticut is able to continue its vital governmental services and operations under all conditions. For this to take place, state agencies must have plans in place to carry out their departmental essential program functions without interruption. The All Hazards COOP enhances the State’s readiness by focusing on the Executive Branch agencies/offices that support the overarching State essential functions for emergency response and recovery.  These State essential functions are found listed in the State Response Framework (SRF).
