Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)

FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against,  respond to, recover from and mitigate all hazards…  FEMA is not the team, but part of a team.  That team includes federal partners, state, tribal and local officials, the private sector, non-profits and faith-based groups and the general public.

On March 1, 2003, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) became part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).  Download the FEMA Brochure (PDF 448KB, TXT 14KB).
