National Response Framework Update Engagement Webinar 1
Monday, October 15, 2018 8:00:00 PM UTC - 9:00:00 PM UTC
As part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) effort to build a national culture of preparedness and based on lessons learned from the unprecedented 2017 hurricane and wildfire season, the National Response Framework (NRF) is being updated to incorporate lessons learned from the unprecedented 2017 hurricane and wildfire season. The 2017 Hurricane Season FEMA After-Action Report specifically recommended a revision of the NRF to emphasize stabilization of critical lifelines and coordination across the critical infrastructure sectors. As a Nation, closer partnerships between all levels of government and the private sector are crucial in providing commodities and support to survivors. The NRF, first released in 2008, is a guide for how our Nation responds to all types of disasters and emergencies. Built on the scalable, flexible, and adaptable concepts identified in the National Incident Management System, the NRF is one of the five documents in the suite of National Planning Frameworks. Each framework covers one preparedness mission area: Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, or Recovery. The fourth edition of the NRF will stress the important relationship between business, industry, and infrastructure.
