Emegency Management: Preliminary Observations on FEMA’s Community Preparedness Programs Related to the National Preparedness System: Testimony Before the Subcommittee on Emergency Communications, Preparedness, and Response, Committee on Homeland Security,
William O. Jenkins, Jr. (au)
Statement of William O. Jenkins, Jr., Dir., Homeland Security and Justice Issues, GAO. By preparing their families and property before an event, individuals can reduce a disaster's impact on them and their need for first responder assistance, particularly in the first 72 hours following a disaster. By law, the Fed. Emergency Mgt. Agency (FEMA), located in the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS), is to develop a national preparedness system (NPS) -- FEMA includes community preparedness programs as part of the NPS. FEMA's budget to operate these programs made up less than one half of 1% of its $7.9 billion budget for FY 2009. These programs include the Citizen Corps program and its partner programs, such as Fire Corps, and rely on volunteers to coordinate efforts and assist first responders in local communities. DHS's Ready Campaign promotes preparedness through mass media. This testimony provides preliminary observations on (1) challenges FEMA faces in measuring the performance of Citizen Corps, its partner programs, and the Ready Campaign and (2) actions FEMA has taken to develop a strategy to encompass how Citizen Corps, its partner programs, and the Ready Campaign operate within the context of the NPS.
