COSTEP: Coordinated Statewide Emergency Preparedness

An Emergency Response Framework for the Cultural Community


COSTEP is a planning tool designed to bring together cultural resource institutions with emergency management agencies and first responders. It will provide a blueprint for preparing for area-wide disasters and building alliances with federal, state, and local emergency management agencies.


Update, 09/02/09: This wiki was created for the work of developing the COSTEP framework. As we near completion of the grant, we will move to our official Web site at: http://www.nedcc.org/disaster/costep.php. Please check in for the release of the final COSTEP framework, expected Fall 2009. The framework will be available as a .pdf and a dynamic Web site. A helpful Starter Kit will guide you as you get COSTEP started in your state, and a new brochure will help you spread the word.



The COSTEP brochure is available for download:
