Click here to read the Plan.
The 2014-2018 FEMA Strategic Plan reflects objectives the Agency will accomplish to provide the best possible support to the American people before, during, and after disasters. It sets forth the strategies FEMA will employ to accomplish the objectives and also establishes measurable outcomes to achieve. This Strategic Plan was developed through the involvement of hundreds of FEMA employees and many external stakeholders who contributed to generating our objectives, strategies, and outcomes, and who are now working to execute this Plan.
The Strategic Plan provides a strategic lens to focus FEMA's efforts and guide the allocation of resources over the next four years. The FEMA Strategic Plan supports the Department of Homeland Security's 2014 Quadrennial Homeland Security Review Mission 5 (Strengthen national preparedness and resilience) and is built on five strategic priorities and two strategic imperatives outlined in the Fiscal Year 2015-2019 Administrator's Intent:
FEMA’s Five Strategic Priorities:
Priority 1: Be survivor-centric in mission and program delivery
Priority 2: Become an expeditionary organization
Priority 3: Posture and build capability for catastrophic disasters
Priority 4: Enable disaster risk reduction nationally
Priority 5: Strengthen FEMA’s organizational foundation
FEMA's Two Strategic Imperatives:
A whole community approach to emergency management
Foster innovation and learning
