Fiscal Year 2012 Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program (CSEPP) Cooperative Agreement Guidance (June 15, 2011)
FEMA CSEPP provides financial assistance to the State of Colorado and the Commonwealth of Kentucky to support preparedness for a potential incident involving the two remaining U.S. chemical weapons stockpile locations. A new cooperative agreement is established annually with these grantees. The FY 2012 CSEPP Cooperative Agreement Guidance updates the FY 2011 Guidance (dated August 2010).
Reformatted RCPGP Guidance Kit. Due to continued stakeholder feedback and recommendations, the Grants Program Directorate (GPD) has reformatted its FY 2011 RCPGP Guidance and Application Kit. The Kit is now structured into two separate documents, referred to as Section I and Section II. While both are important documents for grantees to study and thoroughly familiarize themselves with, Section I is intended to help grantees during the application phase of the RCPGP; whereas, Section II is intended to help grantees in understanding the rules and regulations associated with administering federally-funded grant awards.
The fusion process is a cornerstone for the effective prevention of threats, including terrorism and other crimes, by State, local, tribal, and territorial governments. The term “fusion” refers to the overarching process of managing the flow of information and intelligence across all levels and sectors of government and the private sector. It goes beyond establishing an information/intelligence center or creating a computer network. Many fusion centers have undertaken an all-crimes and/or all-hazards approach, as well as the inclusion of multi-disciplinary and non-law enforcement partners in their processes. Ultimately, the fusion process supports the implementation of risk-based, information-driven prevention, protection, response and recovery programs. At the same time, it supports efforts to address immediate or emerging threat-related circumstances and events.
Federal Emergency Management Agency Radiological Emergency Prepardeness Guidance to State amd Local Governments for Shelf Life Extension of Potassium Iodide (KI)
this document is intended to provide guidance to Federal Agencies and to state and local governments on testing to extend the shelf life of stockpiled potassium iodide (KI) tablets. The agency has developed this document in response to several state inquiries on this topic. This guidance discusses FDA recommendations on testing for such shelf life extensions, the qualifications of laboratories suitable to conduct the tests and issues regarding notification of holders of stockpiled KI tablets a well as end users about changes to batch shelf life once testing has been successfully conducted
The Federal Emergency Agency (FEMA) created in 1978 has overall federal responsibility for offsite radiological emergency planning and preparedness functions. This responsibility which includes coordinating, evaluating, and approving state and local offsite radiological emergency planning and preparednes for commercial nuclear powet plants was officially assigned to FEMA by the President in 1979.
This document provides guidance to State and local governments and to Federal agencies on offsite emergency measurement of radionuclides after an accident involving a light-water nuclear power plant; in particular, this document provides guidance on determining the dose commitment from the milk pathway. Other guidance documents on measurement of radionuclides to determine dose commitments in food, water, and air pathways have been issued.
Protective action levels proposed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for milk are used as the basis for monitoring requirements. Measurement of radionuclides in milk should be made at the earliest practical point in the production chain: dairy farms, receiving and transfer stations, processing plants or marketing facilities. Early monitoring will provide data to keep significantly contaminated milk out of distribution and will provide the basis for the most timely emergency response action. Radioiodine plus four other radionuclides, cesium-134, cesium-137, strontium-89, and strontium-90, contribute significantly to dose via the milk pathway. For the most severe potential accident, the short-term dose via the milk pathway from radio-iodine is significantly greater than that of cesium or strontium.
Guidance on Offsite Emergency Radiation neasurements Systems Phase 3: Water and Non-Dairy Food Pathway
This document provides guidance to state and local governments and to fedral agencies on offisite emergency measurement of radionuclides in non-dairy food and potable water to determine dose commitment after a major accident involving a light-water nuclear power plant
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), along with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is charged with the responsibility under Public Law 96-295 (1980) to promulgate National Standards for State and local governments and NRC licensees of commercial nuclear power plants to develop off-site radiological emergency plans and preparedness and for FEMA and NRC to use in evaluating the adequacy of off-site radiological emergency preparedness. FEMA published an interim Portal Monitor Standard in the Federal Register in September 1992. The Standard set forth in this document is published as FEMA's Contamination Monitoring Standard for portal monitors used by State and local Governments in response to commercial nuclear power plant accidents.
Contamination Monitoring Guidance For Portable Instruments Used For Radiological Emergency Response To Nuclear Power Plant Accidents
The Federal Emergency Management (FEMA) under the authority of Public Law 96-295 (1980) and in cooperation with members of the Federal Radiological Preparedness Coordinating Committee (FRPCC) in March 1995 promulgated the The Federal Emergency Management (FEMA) under the authority of Public Law 96-295 (1980) and in cooperation with members of the Federal Radiological Preparedness Coordinating Committee (FRPCC) in March 1995 promulgated the contamination monitoring standard for a portal monitor used for radiological emergency response. That document ,(commonly referred to as the portal monitor standard) provides FEMA decontatmination decision criteria for individuals when using portal monitors for radiological emergency to commercial nuclear power plants.

Criteria for Preparation and Evaluation of Radiological Emergency Response Plans and Preparedness in Support of Nuclear Power PlantsCriteria for Utility Offsite Planning and PreparednessFinal Report
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have added a supplement to NUREG-0654/FEMA-REP-1, Rev. 1 that provides guidance for the development, review, and evaluation of utility offsite radiological emergency response planning and preparedness for those situations in which State and/or local governments decline to participate in emergency planning. While this guidance primarily applies to plants that do not have full-power operating licenses, it does have relevance to operating nuclear power plants
Criteria for Preparation and Evaluation of Radiological Emergency Response Plans and Preparedness in Support of Nuclear Power Plants
Supplement 3, “Guidance for Protective Action Strategies,” to NUREG-0654/FEMA-REP-1,“Criteria for Preparation and Evaluation of Radiological Emergency Response Plans andPreparedness in Support of Nuclear Power Plants,” updates the previous version of Supplement 3, “Criteria for Protective Action Recommendations for Severe Accidents,” issued July 1996. Supplement 3 provides a protective action strategy development tool based on recent technical information and is intended for use by nuclear power reactor licensees to develop site-specific protective action recommendation procedures. Offsite response organizations should use Supplement 3 to develop protective action strategy guidance for decision makers. The guidance of Supplement 3 provides an acceptable method to comply withAppendix E to Part 50, Title 10 of the code of federal regulations
Criteria for Preparation and Criteria for Preparation and Emergency Response Plans and Preparedness in Support of Nuclear Power Plants
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have added Supplement 2 to NUREG-0654/FEMA-REP-1, Revision 1, to provide guidance for the development, review, and approval of radiological emergency information and plans submitted with an early site permit application under Subpart A of 10 CFR Part 52
This document summarizes the components of the National Preparedness System, which include: identifying and assessing risk, estimating the level of capabilities needed to address those risks, building or sustaining the required levels of capability, developing and implementing plans to deliver those capabilities, validating and monitoring progress, and reviewing and updating efforts to promote continuous improvement.
This document provides program guidance and supporting information for implementation of the Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program (CSEPP) exercise program. It replaces the exercise program document, Exercise Policy and Guidance for Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program Exercise (June 19, 2009), known as the “Blue Book.”

The National Prevention Framework describes what the whole community—from community members to senior leaders in government—should do upon the discovery of intelligence or information regarding an imminent threat to the homeland in order to thwart an initial or follow-on terrorist attack. This Framework helps achieve the National Preparedness Goal of a secure and resilient Nation that is optimally prepared to prevent an imminent terrorist attack within the United States. The processes and policies described in this document will be conducted in accordance with existing laws and regulations.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) National Preparedness Assessment Division (NPAD) asked the Homeland Security Systems Engineering and Development Institute (HSSEDI), a Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) to support their efforts to understand the return on investment (ROI) provided by the FEMA non-disaster emergency preparedness grants under the Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP).
Previous work determined that the data required to perform an ROI study is not available. HSSEDI proposed conducting three pilot studies to test various methodologies to determine if it was possible to arrive at the investment benefits of HSGP without the requisite data. This report describes the approach, results, and recommendations of those pilots: Detailed Operations Model (DOM), a Revealed Preference Analysis (RPA) of Virginia State Homeland Security Program (SHSP) grant proposals, and a Breakeven Analysis (BA). The purpose of the pilots was to develop the approaches and explore the feasibility of using them at scale.
