While this revised state mutual aid plan is to be utilized by Missouri’s emergency services for the response of its personnel and equipment during a disaster, major emergency, or a significant event, other organizations and agencies are encouraged to use it as a template for their response. This template can be used to create a multidiscipline, multi-jurisdictional State-Wide plan. This plan would provide one “playbook” on how first responders in Missouri work together in order to prepare for, respond to and recover from major and complex incidents.

The systematic plan can be utilized from the smallest incident, through regional incidents, up to and including catastrophic incidents following the six principles of the National Incident Management System (NIMS). This multi-discipline, multi-jurisdictional plan would be the “Missouri Systems Concept of Operational Planning for Emergencies “(MoSCOPE).

 MoSCOPE would be the tool for a coordinated system that could be utilized to mitigate the effects of the complete spectrum of emergencies and events that will affect Missouri and its citizens, specifically by providing a platform for sharing and receiving resources, locally, regionally, and nationally.

MoSCOPE will produce a template for all disciplines and jurisdictions to customize and utilize to produce a single All Hazards plan for response throughout Missouri and, if needed, the nation. MoSCOPE would provide a basis for Command and Management for any type of response by utilizing the Incident Management System (IMS).

Furthermore, MoSCOPE could provide a common operation picture utilized by Multi-agency Coordination Systems (MACS) and Joint Public Information Systems (JIS). The Command and Management function of MoSCOPE will provide for common preparedness principals that would be a reasonable expectation by local responders of the system; whether requesting or lending assistance. MoSCOPE would also be a tool to manage and account for resources. 

Strategic Plan

Strategic planning is an organization's process of defining its strategy, or direction, and making decisions on allocating its resources to pursue this strategy, including its capital and people. Various business analysis techniques can be used in strategic planning, including SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats ), PEST analysis (Political, Economic, Social, and Technological), STEER analysis (Socio-cultural, Technological, Economic, Ecological, and Regulatory factors), and EPISTEL (Environment, Political, Informatic, Social, Technological, Economic and Legal).

Strategic planning is the formal consideration of an organization's future course.

All strategic planning deals with at least one of three key questions:

  1. "What do we do?"
  2. "For whom do we do it?"
  3. "How do we excel?"
