Community and Infrastructure Protection Planning (CIPP)


General Emergency Planning prepares state and local first responders to prevent, protect, respond to, and recover from a variety of emergency situations. Alaska DHS&EM has worked with its many partners in the delivery of emergency plans to many different levels of government throughout the state.

The purpose of Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) is to build a safer, more secure, and more resilient Alaska. The CIP Team accomplishes its mission through site visits, analysis reports, and private-public partnerships.

Critical infrastructures are the systems and assets so vital to Alaska that their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating impact on public safety, economic stability, public health, and essential goods and services. Some critical infrastructures are physical (buildings, water, roads, etc.) and some are virtual (internet, radio, wireless networks, etc.). CIP addresses all hazards, but focuses on building resilience against natural disasters, physical attacks, and cyber threats
