[Please note – All four webinars listed below have the same content, so register for webinar that is most convenient for your schedule.]

Building on the work from the past several years, FEMA is coordinating the update of the National Planning Frameworks and would like your input.

The National Planning Frameworks describe how the whole community works together to achieve the National Preparedness Goal. There is one Framework for each of the five mission areas―Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery. The Frameworks follow a whole community approach to preparedness, which recognizes that everyone can contribute to and benefit from national preparedness efforts.

All five Frameworks are being updated concurrently to ensure they align across all mission areas and with the refreshed National Preparedness Goal.

FEMA is hosting a series of 60-minute engagement webinars to discuss the update effort. All webinars are open to the whole community, which encompasses—individuals (including those with disabilities and others with access and functional needs), businesses and nonprofits, faith-based and community groups, schools, and all levels of government.

Because each engagement webinar will cover the same information, please choose the session most convenient for you. Advance registration is required due to space limitations. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis. To register, please visit https://www.vjpo.org/private/ppd8/events/frameworksupdate.

If you require accommodations to participate in these events, please provide details in the Disability Related Accommodations field on the registration page or contact us at PPD8-Engagement@fema.dhs.gov.
