Hurricane Katrina illustrated that effective preparation and response to a catastrophe requires a joint effort between fed., state, and local gov┐t. The Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS), through FEMA, is responsible for heading the joint effort. In Jan. 2008, DHS released the ┐National Response Framework┐ (NRF), a revision of the 2004 ┐National Response Plan,┐ the national preparation plan for all hazards. This report evaluates the extent to which: (1) DHS collaborated with non-fed. stakeholders in revising and updating the 2004 Plan into the 2008 NRF; and (2) FEMA has developed policies and procedures for managing future NRF revisions. Includes recommendations. Illustrations.
