Individual State Overview
Illinois
Illinois’ Involvement in the Regional Catastrophic Planning Team ( RCPT)
 2008 Tri-State original Combined Statistical Area (CSA) member:
Indiana, Illinois & Wisconsin
 Illinois Counties: Cook, DuPage, DeKalb
Grundy, Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, Lake,
McHenry, & Will. One City – Chicago.
Combined Statistical Area (CSA)
The Illinois-Indiana-Wisconsin CSA (Il-In-Wi CSA) encompasses 16 counties, their three
states, and the City of Chicago. The CSA is governed by the Regional Catastrophic
Planning (RCPT) and reports to the Chicago-Cook County Urban Area Working Group
(UAWG).
The primary focus of the RCPGP is to: 1) fix shortcomings in existing plans; 2) build
regional planning processes and relationships; and 3) link operational & capabilities
based planning to resource allocation. The four primary critical capability areas are
Transportation/Evacuation, Mass Care & Sheltering, Public Information & Warning, and
Logistics & Resource Management.
The Illinois Regional Catastrophic Incident Coordination
Plan (RCICP)
Annexes rolled out in the IL-IN-WI CSA in a series of workshops:
• Awareness of the concepts of ops presented in its 4 Annexes
• Overview of the plan’s roles & responsibilities presented by a
panel of local EMA representatives and
• Round-table discussions on collaboration to address regional
coordination.
The Illinois RCICP
• Annexes are rolled out in the IL-IN-WI CSA through a series of
workshops:
• Plan Rollout Workshop – DuPage County, IL (April 11, 2013)
• Plan Rollout Workshop – Chicago, IL (December 10, 2013)
The National Mass Evacuation Tracking System (NMETS)
and Shelter Placement Plan
This project included program development, implementation and
training support to evacuee tracking and temporary shelter
coordination expanding throughout the IL-IN-WI CSA.
This NMETS tracking program is free through the federal
government.
The NMETS and Shelter Placement Plan
The purpose of NMETS Workshops is to validate just-in-time
training module: test ability to gain access to State servers from
multiple stations; validate the ability to process evacuees given
written procedures and generate reports.
They distributed NMETS kits to each jurisdiction that included an
installation CD, barcode scanner, wrist bands and paper based
forms and job aids.
The NMETS and Shelter Placement Plan
Another purpose of the Shelter Placement Workshop was to
create situational awareness of the shelter placement process;
review its concept of operations and all associated tools; and to
offer participants a simulation of the evacuee placement process.
•NMETS Workshop (Northern Illinois University - July 18, 2013)
•Shelter Placement Workshop (Chicago, IL – July 25, 2013)
The Regional Hub Reception Center (RHRC) Planning
Guide
The RHRC Planning Guide was developed to provide assistance to
jurisdictions and facilities in the CSA with operational plans,
procedures, job aids and related document for RHRC operations
when activated.
The RHRC seminar served as a mechanism to first rollout the
concept and then validate the RHRC Guide as written.
The RHRC Planning at Northern Illinois
University (NIU)
Brought many
Agencies together
including TetraTech;
IEMA; Local EMAs;
University Police,
EMS, Fire & University
Administrators
The RHRC at NIU
NIU, a major partner in the guide development, provided and
presented an overview of their Hub Reception Center Plan.
• Seminar/Tabletop Exercise - College of DuPage (March 14, 2012)
• RHCR Presentation – IEMA Conference (September 4-6, 2013)
• Hub and Reception Functional Exercise - NIU (TBD, January 2014)
Whole Community Conference
The RCPT advocates the Whole Community approach to leverage
all resources to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover
from and mitigating against all hazards to collectively meet the
needs of the entire community.
Whole Community Conference
in Lisle, IL
The Whole Community include the RCPT, FEMA, State, local, tribal

Regional Citizen Preparedness Campaign
The Regional Citizen Preparedness Campaign objectives are to
increase awareness, knowledge, preparedness and response of
citizens to disasters within the CSA.
Regional Citizen Preparedness Campaign
“Gear Up Get Ready”
The Gear Up Get Ready Campaign was developed and field tested
in sixteen jurisdictions through the CSA to validate proof of the
concept.
They worked fairs, went door to door and did mailings. They
mailed Emergency Contact Cards and at events they had people
fill out Emergency Contact Cards, Family Emergency Plans and
provided them with an Emergency Kit list.

All Hazards Risk Assessments (RA) Plan
The RA Plan’s goal was to conduct an all-hazards risk identification assessment
for the IL-IN-WI CSA and develop a regional capability to analyze risks in a
manner that provides planners with objective data that can be used to inform
cost-efficient investment strategies that comprise risk management plans.
The IL-IN-WI CSA All Hazards RA Plan will be Threat and Hazard Identification and
Risk Assessment (THIRA)-compliant.
