FEMA Releases Key Planning Factors and Considerations for Response to and Recovery from a Chemical Incident for Public Engagement

FEMA is seeking public feedback on “Key Planning Factors and Considerations for Response to and Recovery from a Chemical Incident for Public Engagement” (Chem KPF). This national engagement period will conclude at 5 p.m. ET July 22.

The Chem KPF will help SLTT planners identify considerations that could substantially aid the recovery process by decreasing recovery timeline and costs, improving public health and safety and addressing major resource limitations and critical decisions resulting from a chemical incident. The national engagement affords interested stakeholders the opportunity to review and provide feedback on the document.

The comment matrix can be used to capture any feedback on the Chem KPF. Please provide any comments, or recommendations by the close of business on July 22, 2021. Email feedback or any questions to fema-cbrnoffice@fema.dhs.gov.

FEMA will host three, 60-minute webinars to discuss the Chem KPF, and the related National Qualification System Chemical Operations Support Specialist documents which are also out for national engagement. The webinar is open to the whole community. Advance registration is required and on a first-come, first-served basis. To register for a webinar, please click on the desired date and time below:
