Resource Mobilization


The Resource Mobilization Plan is an all-risk system for the allocation, mobilization and deployment of resources in the event of a disaster or local incident that requires more resources than those available under any existing inter jurisdictional or mutual aid agreement. The plan is utilized after all local and mutual aid resources have been depleted or will be imminently depleted.  

The All-Hazards Emergency Resource Mobilization Plan is currently being revised by the Colorado Emergency Resource Mobilization Working Group for the Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and the Office of Emergency Management.

Colorado Resource Rate Form 

The Colorado Resource Rate Form (CRRF) is an integral component of State's Resource Mobilization Plan.  The plan has evolved over many years.  Key points of the CRRF:

  • The CRRF is the only approved method to relay this information to the State.  It permits the local agency to determine what resources they own and can make available to their neighbors throughout the state.
  • The CRRF does not obligate response, it merely documents what resources are potentially available and what their costs may be.
  • The CRRF does not replace any existing dispactch system or protocol.  Resources listed on the CRRF will be entered into various databases which will assist mobilizing resources for larger incidents.
  • The CRFF is a living document.  When an agency has changes to their organization and their equipment the CRRF must be updated to ensure the most accurate information.

To make the process easier the necessary forms are simple to use and all DHSEM Regional Field Managers and DFPC Fire Management Officers have been trained to assist agencies.  The CRFF forms must be completed and on file with DHSEM by May 1, 2014.
