Preparedness Cycle - Evaluate/Improve - Plan - Organize/Equip -Train - ExerciseSharing Information…Enhancing Preparedness…Strengthening Homeland Security

The last phase of the Preparedness Cycle is evaluation and improvement. During this phase, organizations collect lessons learned, develop improvement plans, and track corrective actions to address gaps and deficiencies identified in exercises or real-world events. FEMA’s Lessons Learned and Continuous Improvement Program (LL/CIP) brings together the collective evaluation and improvement efforts of federal, state and local emergency management and homeland security professionals to continuously improve and strengthen preparedness and homeland security at the federal, state and local levels.


Lessons Learned/Continuous Improvement Program (LL/CIP)

LLIS.gov enables emergency management and homeland security professionals to collaborate, communicate, network and share lessons learned, best practices and innovative ideas in a secure environment. Sponsored and administered by FEMA's National Preparedness and Assessment Division (NPAD), LLIS.gov is designed as a “user-driven,” interactive program that relies upon the whole community for generation and sharing of best practices and lessons learned.
