Emergency Management: Preliminary Observations on FEMA's Community Preparedness Programs Related to the National Preparedness System: Congressional Testimony
DIANE Publishing Inc., 2011 - 22 pages
This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. By preparing their families and property before an event, people can reduce a disaster's impact on them and their need for first responders, esp. in the first 72 hours following a disaster. FEMA developed a national preparedness system (NPS) and included community preparedness programs as part of the NPS. These programs include the Citizen Corps program and its partner programs, such as Fire Corps, and rely on volunteers to assist first responders in local communities. This testimony discusses: (1) challenges FEMA faces in measuring the performance of Citizen Corps and the Ready Campaign: and (2) actions FEMA has taken to develop a strategy to encompass how Citizen Corps and the Ready Campaign operate within the context of the NPS.
