New FEMA Plan Builds on Success
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has announced a plan that details program evolutions during the 2004 hurricanes that are now in place to help the agency respond to the 2005 hurricane season and all future disasters. Key elements of the “Building on Success” plan include the pre-positioning of disaster supplies, deployment of the National Disaster Medical System, the introduction of a web-based individual assistance application, and expansion of mutual aid assistance. These are examples of program evolutions that will better serve disaster victims no matter where or when the next disaster strikes.
