Threat- and Hazard-Specific Annexes
The threat- and hazard-specific annexes describe the courses of action unique to particular threats and hazards. Courses of action already outlined in a functional annex need not be repeated in a threat- or hazard-specific annex. Develop these based on the prioritized list of threats and hazards determined in the assessment process. As planning teams develop courses of action for threats and hazards, consider the federal, state, and local regulations or mandates that often apply to specific threats and hazards.
If there is a functional annex that applies to one of the threat- or hazard-specific annexes, the latter will include it by reference. For example, if a “during” course of action for a fire hazard involves evacuation and there is an Evacuation Annex, the Fire Annex would indicate “see Evacuation Annex” in the “during” course of action section rather than repeat the evacuation courses of action in the Fire Annex.
