2013 National Preparedness Report Fact Sheet

The National Preparedness Report (NPR) summarizes progress the Nation has made in building, sustaining, and delivering the 31 core capabilities outlined in the National Preparedness Goal across all five mission areas identified in Presidential Policy Directive 8 (PPD-8): Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery. This report marks the second annual NPR, updating and expanding upon findings from the 2012 NPR. While last year’s report focused on all of the progress made in the decade following the September 11, 2001 attacks, the 2013 NPR highlights accomplishments achieved or reported on during 2012.
