Mass Care/Emergency Services Reunification Service Fact Sheet

 

FEMA has the statutory requirement to facilitate the reunification of unaccompanied minors with their custodial parents/legal guardians, as well as the voluntary reunification of adults with their families, during declared emergencies or major disasters. Working collaboratively with whole community partners, FEMA Mass Care/Emergency Assistance (MC/EA) develops procedures, identifies best practices and provides resources to strengthen reunification services. MC/EA facilitates partner agreements and identifies and develops new resources and tools, including training and exercises, in support of state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) governmental reunification planning and operations. FEMA coordinates deployment of national reunification resources, both human and material, to support state-led reunification task forces as well as field operations.
