PDF document Indiana IEAP Form

The Indiana Dam Safety Program has created an Incident and Emergency Action Plan template (form) for use on dams of any size in the state. For more information on the form and its use, contact the Dam Safety Program. In designing the template, Indiana relied on EAP forms and formats from several states and from federal agencies, along with lessons learned from actual emergencies at dams. For example, the template draws on some elements from Federal Guidelines for Dam Safety: Emergency Action Planning for Dam Owners (an update of the document FEMA 64). Although the Indiana template is 43 pages in length, several pages contain explanations of terminology and others require little work by the dam owner to complete. The Indiana template is meant to be user friendly and the resulting IEAP may be shorter, depending on the characteristics of the dam and its inundation zone. Indiana also has created guidelines for creating Simplified Dam Breach Inundation Maps for use with the IEAPs.
