Emergency Management

The Mid-Atlantic Region has a staff of trained emergency management professionals who are dedicated to providing an effective emergency management program.

These professionals are prepared to support federal emergency management needs during disasters by ensuring that all essential services provided by the federal government continue with minimal interruption.

Based in Philadelphia, GSA's Mid-Atlantic Region provides products and services throughout Delaware, Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey, West Virginia, Maryland (excluding Montgomery and Prince George's counties*), and Virginia (excluding the cities of Alexandria and Falls Church, and Arlington, Fairfax, Loudon, and Prince William counties*).

In the event of an emergency, federal employees should follow their own agency's emergency procedures and monitor media announcements to obtain disaster or emergency-related information.

Continuity of Operations Plans (COOP)

Every federal agency is required to plan for the continuous performance of essential functions and operations in the event of an emergency.

A comprehensive and effective COOP plan facilitates the performance of an agency’s essential functions during any emergency situation that may disrupt normal operations. Essential functions are those that enable federal agencies to provide vital services, exercise civil authority, maintain the safety and well being of the general public, and sustain the industrial/economic base in an emergency. Part of an agency’s COOP plan for uninterrupted performance is to designate other locations—alternate facilities—where their work will continue.
