COP insights this week.

When I visited MSB this week to learn about the work to create and maintain a national level-COP, a few things struck my mind. Local and regional-authorities tend to produce COPs which are highly oriented towards describing the disruptive event and describing the operations rather than detailing the consequences. In contrast, on the national-level, there is a strong focus on consequences and less focus on the descriptive aspects of the disruptive event.
Authorities on local and regional-levels should therefore provide a better balance between an incident-descriptive COP and a consequence-focused COP. Such a shift of attention requires new functionality in existing tech/tools. Consequence mapping and analysis as a feature domain is significantly under-explored in current emergency and crisis response information systems.
