The purpose of the RCPGP is to enhance catastrophic incident preparedness in selected RCPGP Sites.
RCPGP is intended to support coordination of regional all-hazard planning for catastrophic events, including the development of integrated planning communities, plans, protocols, and procedures to
manage a catastrophic event.
RCPGP provides a framework for enhancing the Nation's security and resilience for catastrophic events through fixing shortcomings in existing plans, building regional planning processes and planning communities, and linking operational needs identified in catastrophic event plans to resource allocation.
The program supports innovative approaches to catastrophic preparedness through planning and personnel, and aligning existing operational resources in the selected areas.
