I just added a Microsoft Word document for your use. It has interactive dropdowns and you can edit it directly on your computer. If you’ve been itching to make a pretty, typed-up plan, now you can! You can download it here: Updated template – Word format (.docx format – requires Microsoft Word 2007 or newer). Please let me know what you think of it!
The PDF version is still available below. Next, I’ll get to work on an interactive PDF.
I used this emergency communications plan template in my “Emergency Radio Communications Made Easy” presentation at the Partners in Emergency Preparedness Conference (www.PIEPC.org) in April 2012, and at EMCOMM West in May 2012. Now you can use it too, for free. Enjoy!
It covers basic questions you’ll need to answer, and gives you a framework for creating your own, realistic emcomm plan. My book, Personal Emergency Preparedness, covers the questions as well as many equipment recommendations in detail.
Here is your template (PDF format). Please let me know if you have any suggestions for improvement. One I’m already planning to implement: a tiny, wallet-sized folding plan template, so you can always have your plan handy. Thanks for the idea (you know who you are )!
