FEMA Seeks Input from Whole Community on National Planning Framework

FEMA is working with its Federal partners to update each of the National Planning Frameworks. The National Planning Frameworks, which are part of the National Preparedness System, set the strategy and doctrine for building, sustaining, and delivering the core capabilities identified in theNational Preparedness Goal.
As called for under Presidential Policy Directive 8: National Preparedness (PPD-8), the goal sets a vision for preparedness, and states that “a secure and resilient Nation with the capabilities required across the whole community to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from the threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk,” and identifies the core capabilities necessary to achieve the goal.
FEMA is seeking input from the whole community on all five Frameworks, which cover the mission areas of Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response and Recovery. The draft of each Framework and the comment forms can be found in the FEMA Resource and Document Library.
Please submit all comment forms to PPD8-Engagement@fema.dhs.gov byWednesday, June 3, 2015 at 5:00 PM EDT.
