Each of the five State of Connecticut Regional Emergency Planning Teams (REPT) writes a Regional Emergency Support Plan (RESP) to outline how local governments may seek mutual aid among municipalities when local resources are exhausted in the event of a large scale disaster affecting all or part of the REPT Region. Goals of the plan include:
- Maximize the preservation of life and property
- Correct or alleviate, as expeditiously as possible, serious disaster or emergency-related conditions which present continued threats to the health or welfare of the public, and
- Facilitate a return to normalcy by all practical means
The RESP applies to all municipalities and response organizations in an REPT Region and to the State DESPP/DEMHS and encompasses mutual aid provided under the Intrastate Mutual Aid Agreement (Section 28-22a, C.G.S.).
