FEMA and its partners want to know what businesses and nonprofit groups think about a series of new documents related to how the private sector plays a role in national preparedness.
These documents are called “National Frameworks,” and they are part of Presidential Policy Directive 8 / PPD-8: National Preparedness.
The directive asks the whole community including businesses, community- and faith-based organizations, schools, individuals and all levels of governmentundefinedto work together to strengthen the resilience and security of the United States.
Together, the five National Frameworks will clearly define key preparedness roles and responsibilities for all whole community partners. The National Disaster Recovery Framework was released in September 2011. The focus is now on revising the National Response Framework and developing the Prevention, Protection and Mitigation Frameworks.
We are hosting webinars and in-person workshops for people to provide their thoughts on the private sector and nonprofit roles and responsibilities identified in the working draft Frameworks. We’re interested in validating content, identifying gaps and discussing new ideas. Framework authors will be on hand during the events to provide background information and answer questions. All feedback will be considered when revising and finalizing the working draft Frameworks.
Please choose the workshop(s) of interest to you. Due to space limitations, pre-registration is required. Information on the draft Frameworks will be made available prior to the workshop.
Registration is on a first come, first serve basis. To register, please visit http://ppd8.vjpo.org
