FEMA Releases 2019 National Preparedness Report

Dec 11, 2019 | Kim Rodgers

Developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the annual National Preparedness Report summarizes the progress made and challenges that remain in building and sustaining the capabilities needed to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from the threats, hazards and incidents that pose the greatest risk to the Nation. This annual report offers all levels of government, the private and nonprofit sectors, and the public practical insights into preparedness that support decisions about program priorities, resource allocation, and community actions.

Released in December 2019, the 2019 National Preparedness Report presents an overview of the five preparedness mission areas—Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery— and describes major findings identified through community-wide research and engagement. The report covers calendar year 2018 and contains:

  • An Introduction and Timeline of Incidents;
  • A snapshot of preparedness grant allocations;
  • Cross-cutting preparedness trends identified through community Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA)/ Stakeholder Preparedness Review (SPR) submissions;
  • Report Findings that assess mission area successes and challenges;
  • Preparedness in Practice callouts that highlight real-world examples of whole community efforts;
  • Actionable information to help individuals increase personal- and community-level preparedness; and
  • A Conclusion that contains a discussion on the evolution of measuring preparedness and future assessment efforts
