National Preparedness Planning Frameworks

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has just released three new planning frameworks as part of its comprehensive National Preparedness Goal. The new frameworks—addressing prevention, mitigation, and response—outline the roles and responsibilities of communities in national preparedness and suggest ways in which stakeholders can share information on risks, needs, and capabilities in disasters. The frameworks represent three of the five mission areas outlined in Presidential Policy Directive-8. The National Response Framework is a second edition update. The National Recovery Framework was released in September 2012. The National Protection Framework is expected soon.
