NIMS Alert 02-15: National Planning Frameworks: National Engagement Period
Today, FEMA’s National Integration Center (NIC) is soliciting public feedback for the update of the National Planning Frameworks.
This National Engagement Period begins May 11, 2015 and will conclude at 5:00 pm EDT June 3, 2015. National Engagement provides an opportunity for interested parties to comment and provide feedback on the National Planning Frameworks.
The National Planning Frameworks, which are part of the National Preparedness System, set the strategy and doctrine for building, sustaining, and delivering the core capabilities identified in the National Preparedness Goal. They describe the coordinating structures and alignment of key roles and responsibilities for the whole community and are integrated to ensure interoperability across all mission areas. Over the next few weeks, the whole community will have the opportunity to support the update effort and submit their comments and ideas for consideration.
This update of the National Planning Frameworks focuses on discrete, critical content revisions, and confirming edits as a result of comments received on the National Preparedness Goal. Additional changes in the current draft of the Frameworks are the result of the lessons from implementing the Frameworks and recent events, as well as the findings of the National Preparedness Report.
To review the draft National Planning Frameworks, please visit http://www.fema.gov/learn-about-presidential-policy-directive-8. To provide comments, please complete the feedback form and submit to PPD8-Engagement@fema.dhs.gov.
Questions can be directed to FEMA’s NIC at: PPD8-Engagement@fema.dhs.gov.
