NFPA 1600 Handbook: Emergency Management and Continuity

I am educated in Project Management and Project Evaluation techniques. I have applied these skills for projects and for evaluation of an organization that implemented and emergency management program. NFPA 1600 is the Standard used for Emergency Management and Continuity Program implementation. I am wondering why FEMA is not following these standards.


I have never heard this standard mentioned at FEMA and wonder why. It includes an assessment tool for organizations in emergency management to use when completing Program Evaluation. Just like the Project Management Book of Knowledge (PMBOK) is the standard used for Project Management.
