Emergency Action Planning for State Regulated High-Hazard Potential Dams: Findings, Recommendations, and Strategies
Preventing loss of life from dam failure is the
paramount concern of the National Dam Safety
Program. This concern has intensified as a result of
recent disasters that have focused attention on the
state of the critical infrastructure in the United States
and raised questions on the safety of dams nationwide.
As part of a recent initiative to promote the
implementation of Emergency Action Plans at all
high-hazard potential dams across the United States,
FEMA has asked all of the states to adopt the applicable
recommendations contained in this paper.
