About Our Process

 

In honor of President Biden proclaiming May as Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Island Heritage month, FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell today announced in a new video this year’s National Preparedness Month 2024 theme will focus on empowering Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander communities to act today to prepare for future risks and disasters. National Preparedness Month is in September and FEMA is announcing this new theme early to encourage communities and our partners to help over the summer months to engage this community as we are about to kick-off the upcoming hurricane season and ready ourselves for all hazards our communities face.
