AN ACT CONCERNING LOCAL EMERGENCY PLANS OF OPERATION

SUMMARY: Beginning January 1, 2017, this act reduces, from annually to biennially, the frequency with which a town must submit its emergency plan of operations to the emergency services and public protection commissioner.

By law, every town must have a current plan approved by the commissioner to be eligible for certain state or federal emergency management benefits. The plan must be approved by the local emergency management director and chief executive before it is submitted to the commissioner. If the previously submitted plan has not changed, the town may submit it with a notice to that effect.

EFFECTIVE DATE: October 1, 2015
