As of mid-June 2020, only 82 percent of Vermont cities and towns had submitted updates to their Local Emergency Management Plans (LEMPs).

All municipal jurisdictions are required to review and update their LEMP annually and to formally readopt them between Town Meeting Day, the first Tuesday in March, and May 1. A current LEMP is also required in order for municipalities to receive federal preparedness funds and increased state reimbursement through the Emergency Relief and Assistance Fund and other funding opportunities related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Municipalities may report adoption of LEMPs through their regional planning commission with the LEMP adoption form. More information is at vem.vermont.gov/plans/lemp.
