Strengthening Disaster Recovery within FEMA Region III
The National Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF) is a new guide that creates stronger support for disaster-impacted state, local and tribal jurisdictions as they recover from disasters through a flexible, more inclusive structure. The NDRF is designed to enable disaster recovery managers to operate in a unified and collaborative manner as they work to restore quality of life, rebuild infrastructure, and revitalize economic and environmental vitality in the aftermath of disasters.
Created in line with the vision set forward in Presidential Policy Directive 8, the NDRF is the result of extensive stakeholder input and outreach in all ten FEMA regions and municipalities across the country.
The goal of the NDRF is to help build a more resilient nation – one in which individuals, communities and our economy can better withstand and rapidly recover from disasters.
In close coordination with state and local partners, FEMA Region III’s Recovery Division is leading the effort to implement the NDRF within Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.
As part of its implementation plan, Region III will educate the regional emergency management community on the purpose and core recovery principles of the NDRF and the roles and responsibilities of various stakeholders.
The Recovery Division would like to hear from you. Send your questions or comments on Region III’s NDRF implementation efforts to Shea Christilaw at firstname.lastname@example.org or Michelle Harel at email@example.com.
