The Strategic Plan positions the agency to respond to a changing landscape in which the emergency management community must embrace its expanding role. To meet this challenge, the Strategic Plan outlines three bold and ambitious goals. The three objectives under each goal outline how FEMA will support its workforce, better position communities, and leverage its programs and processes to advance the emergency management field.

Emergency management is centered around people — those who work with FEMA and those who are served by the agency.

The first objective in each goal focuses on the emergency management workforce, ensuring they are ready to support those served.

The second objective highlights how the agency can better support communities through FEMA programs.

The third and final objective centers around how FEMA policies, tools and programs, as well as collaboration with partners, can be leveraged to increase whole community outcomes in emergency management.

A Whole Community approach attempts to engage the full capacity of the private and nonprofit sectors — including businesses, faith based and disability organizations, and the American public — in conjunction with the participation of state, local, tribal, territorial, and federal governmental partners.

The goals and objectives laid out in the Strategic Plan will enable success for the agency, the emergency management field, and those who are served.
