Explain the processes of transitioning from emergency management planning into action. What are the key elements of ensuring a smooth transition? What are potential barriers between planning and action?

By identifying the scope and magnitude of many different disasters in the plan, the organization will have the ability to then begin the critical steps of putting into place support and resources to enact each portion of the plan once needed (ready.gov, 2012).
