About the Lessons Learned Information Sharing

Main Content

The Lessons Learned Information Sharing (LLIS) program is part of FEMA’s National Preparedness Assessment Division (NPAD). NPAD’s mission is to advance all hazards preparedness by assessing and communicating investments, activities, and accomplishments related to national preparedness.

The LLIS program supports this mission by:

  • Developing and disseminating lessons learned, innovative practices, and other related content to support continuous improvement throughout the whole community;

  • Analyzing emergency management capabilities in order to identify common areas of strengths or improvements; and

  • Developing policy and doctrine.


The LLIS team analyzes data from exercises and real-world events to identify trends and patterns relevant to the emergency management communities. These documents can be found here.

Case studies demonstrate how states and urban areas across the country use Federal homeland security grants to improve preparedness. These documents can be found here.

The LLIS team hosts webinars on various topics related to emergency management.  Webinars can be found here.

The LLIS team produces lessons learned and innovative practices from the whole community. These documents can be found on HSDL.org.
