FEMA’s Protection and National Preparedness (PNP) is responsible for the coordination of preparedness and protection-related activities throughout FEMA, including grants, planning, training, exercises, individual and community preparedness, assessments, and lessons learned. PNP includes both the National Preparedness Directorate (NPD) and Grant Programs Directorate (GPD). GPD manages non-disaster preparedness grants to measurably improve capability and reduce the risks the Nation faces in times of man-made and natural disasters. NPD provides the doctrine, programs, and resources necessary to prepare the Nation to prevent, protect, mitigate, respond to and recover from disasters; while minimizing the loss of lives, infrastructure, and property. This is done through the National Preparedness System, which outlines an organized process for all partners to move forward with preparedness activities and achieve the National Preparedness Goal. NPD is also responsible for providing the guidance and support necessary to prepare the Nation to respond to incidents resulting from either natural causes or malicious acts, in order minimize the loss of lives and property.
As a division within NPD, the National Preparedness Assessment Division (NPAD) has a mission to advance all hazards preparedness by assessing and communicating the investments, activities, and accomplishments as they relate to national preparedness. The purpose of this task order is to provide the support necessary to assist NPAD in assessing national preparedness. Preparedness is the shared responsibility of our entire nation. The whole community contributes, beginning with individuals and communities, the private and nonprofit sectors, faith-based organizations, and all governments (state, territorial, tribal, local (STTL), regional/metropolitan, insular area, and Federal).
