New Commonwealth critical infrastructure protection plan

The Virginia's Critical Infrastructure Protection and Resiliency Strategic Plan (also known as the "Virginia Plan") became effective June 30. The focus of the plan is to define the Commonwealth's strategy to protect critical infrastructure and key resources so that essential state services and economic functions continue during a terrorist attack, a natural disaster or other type of significant incident. The plan adheres to the National Infrastructure Protection Plan, ensuring that federal funding and resources are used effectively to mitigate the impacts of these emergencies. The Office of Commonwealth Preparedness will work with local, state and federal officials and the private sector to coordinate the strategy and supporting plans.

The plan is available on OCP's Web site: http://www.ocp.virginia.gov/Initiatives/documents/VA_Plan.pdf.
