The U.S. Department of Defense DoD has been engaged in the Partnerships for Peace PFP program formed by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization NATO since 1990. One small but important element of this engagement program is the use of the Civil-Military Emergency Planning CMEP initiative to enhance the capabilities of the PFP Partners to work with each other, with neighboring nations, and with the international community to prepare for natural and technological disasters within any Partner nation. The CMEP initiative includes a number of events, such as traveling contact teams from the U.S. and familiarization tours to the U.S., as well as several workshops conducted both in the U.S. and in Partner nations. This initiative familiarizes professional civilian and military emergency managers of Partner nations with the legal foundations, planning guidelines, and operational procedures that govern use of the U.S. Armed Forces when providing support to U.S. civil authorities. The CMEP initiatives also provide familiarization with evolving computer-based techniques of emergency information planning and management, and seek to build on an incremental basis an enduring competence within the Partners organizations. The computer related familiarization includes data base structures, internet research and simulations, and geographic information systems.
