2015 National Preparedness Goal

Presidential Policy Directive 8: National Preparedness (PPD-8) describes the Nation’s approach to preparing for the threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk to the security of the United States. National preparedness is the shared responsibility of our whole community. Every member contributes, including individuals, communities, the private and nonprofit sectors, faith-based organizations, and Federal, state, and local1 governments. We describe our security and resilience posture through the core capabilities (see Table 1) that are necessary to deal with great risks, and we will use an integrated, layered, and all-of-Nation approach as our foundation.
