Ohio EMA also works in cooperation with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and the Ohio Department of Health in administering and carrying-out activities and responsibilities related to the U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE) facility in Piketon, Ohio.
Ohio EMA's responsibilities with respect to the Piketon Facility include:
Ohio EMA conducts annual reviews of county Emergency Operations Plans on a four-year cycle, based on the federal fiscal year, October 1 through September 30, to coincide with federal funding cycles. These reviews will improve the overall quality of plans statewide and, more importantly, facilitate county-to-county and county-to-state interactions during disasters.
The Plans Branch and Field Operations, Training and Exercise Branch formed teams to review all county Emergency Operations Plans. Each review team, consisting of one planner and one field liaison, will work cooperatively with each county to evaluate where each EOP is in the four-year plan review cycle. The process begins with the county completing a crosswalk indicating where each of the planning elements resides in the plan. This essential part of the process ensures that the review teams do not overlook any elements of the county plans. At the conclusion of each year's planning review process, the county will be provided a document that recommends corrective actions needed to comply with planning guidance.
