Continuity of Operations (COOP) planning is the process of how to continue identified critical functions under a broad range of circumstances.  This COOP plan addresses emergencies from an all-hazards approach.  It establishes policy and guidance ensuring that critical functions continue, and personnel and resources are relocated to an alternate facility.  This document also addresses how an entity will conduct reconstitution and a return to normal operations post incident.
