Please Note:
The documents below are presented as working examples and do not contain required content or formats.  They are intended to be modified to fit each County's unique emergency planning requirements. 

Counties must develop their own basic plan and emergency support functions which reflect their hazards, define their capabilities, describe their emergency management systems and inform their citizens as to how their elected officials will act when responding to and recovering from disasters within their communities.

Before using these documents it is recommended that you review the planning guides which contain worksheets and guidance useful for first time and experienced emergency planners alike.  If you have any questions concerning these documents or guides contact Rocco Pepe, County Planner, Kentucky Division of Emergency Management.
