Emergency Preparedness: FEMA Faces Challenges Integrating Community Preparedness Programs Into Its Strategic Approach
DIANE Publishing, 2010 - 32 pages
Individuals can reduce their need for first responder assistance by preparing for a disaster. FEMA is to develop a National Preparedness System (NPS) that includes community preparedness programs. They include the Citizen Corps Program (CCP) and partner programs, e.g., Fire Corps, which provide volunteers to assist first responders. This report reviewed federal efforts to promote community preparedness. It addressed: (1) challenges, if any, FEMA faces in measuring the performance of CCP, its partner programs, and the Ready Campaign; and (2) actions, if any, FEMA has taken to develop a strategy to encompass how these programs are to operate within the context of the NPS. Includes recommendations. Illustrations.
