2015 National Planning Frameworks Update

The National Planning Frameworks 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.

The Frameworks are reviewed regularly to ensure consistency with new policies, lessons learned, real world events, and the results of the annual National Preparedness Report. FEMA and its partners are coordinating the update effort focusing on discrete, critical content updates to the National Planning Frameworks.

As such, we welcome your thoughts and ideas on the following topics:

  • Examples of perceived strengths and weaknesses of the current National Planning Frameworks.
  • Examples of suggested critical updates to the current National Planning Frameworks.
  • Examples of activities and programs you or your organization conduct related to the five mission areas: Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response and Recovery.

Your ideas will help us understand what works best in your community—and how others could learn from your success. Together, we can make the nation more resilient and secure.

This campaign will be open for new ideas, comments and votes beginning on May 11, 2015, and ending on June 3, 2015.
