Leading and coordinating efforts to maintain capabilities necessary to respond to and stabilize effects of incidents, regardless of hazard.
What We Do
We provide the core, coordinated federal operational response capability needed to save and sustain lives, minimize suffering and protect property in a timely and effective manner in communities that become overwhelmed by natural disasters, acts of terrorism or other emergencies.
Our activities encompass the coordination of all federal emergency management response operations, response planning and integration of federal, state, tribal, territorial and local disaster programs. This coordination ensures efficient and effective delivery of immediate emergency assistance to individuals and communities impacted and overwhelmed by disasters, emergencies or acts of terrorism.
