FEMA releases new HMGP factsheet on the Additional 5 percent Initiative

 

Using HMGP to enhance disaster resilience related to building codes

 

Download these new HMGP resources today!

 

Aug. 23, 2016 – The Additional 5 percent Initiative is funding that has been set aside under the Hazard Mitigation Assistance Grant Program (HMGP) to help communities enhance disaster resilience related to building codes, such as adopting the current International Building Code® and improving a community’s Building Code Effectiveness Grading Schedule (BCEGS) score.

 

Additional 5 percent Initiative Fact Sheet provides Recipients and subrecipients of HMGP funds with additional information on how to implement the Additional 5 percent Initiative as changed by the Fiscal Year 2015 Hazard Mitigation Assistance Guidance. FEMA’s intention in supporting the adoption and enforcement of building codes is to promote resilience by using disaster-resistant practices. A building is considered disaster resistant when it not only protects its occupants but can also be quickly repaired and re-occupied because damage from natural disasters is minimized.

 

Clarifying the Additional 5 percent Initiative Resources is a companion document to the Fact Sheet highlighting where to find more information on resilient building practices.

FEMA NIMS Alert 03-16 - Updated Federal Interagency Operational Plans Released

 

Updated Federal Interagency Operational Plans Released

 

Aug. 18, 2016 – Today, FEMA released updated Federal Interagency Operational Plans (FIOP) for 3 of the 5 mission areas outlined in the National Preparedness Goal: Mitigation, Response, and Recovery. In addition to the updated FIOPs, FEMA has released the first edition of the Protection FIOP. The fifth FIOP--the Prevention FIOP--contains sensitive information for the law enforcement community and is not publically available.

 

All five plans link together the range of activities conducted by all of the Federal departments and agencies involved in national preparedness. They specifically outline the concept of operations for integrating and synchronizing existing national-level Federal capabilities to support local, state, tribal, territorial, insular area, and Federal plans.

 

National preparedness is a shared responsibility—everyone has a role to play to ensure that our nation can address its greatest risks. FEMA supports the mission of strengthening the security and resilience of the nation by working to improve the ability of all to manage incidents, events, and emergencies. The FIOPs do this by creating a shared understanding about how we, as a nation, coordinate, share information, and work together to achieve our missions, as well as define our roles and responsibilities.

 

The FIOPs also provide local, state, tribal, territorial, and insular area planners an understanding of how the Federal Government will utilize capabilities so that they may develop or modify their plans accordingly. While engaging the whole community is critical to successful integration of the plans, the FIOPs are directed towards Federal department and agency operations and do not dictate the operations of any other level of government, private sector, or nonprofit entity.

 

The updates to the 4 established FIOPs focused on critical content revisions and include the edits from comments received on the National Preparedness Goal and National Planning Frameworks. Changes due to lessons learned from implementing the FIOPs and recent events, as well as the findings of the National Preparedness Report are also included.

 

The Department of Homeland Security’s National Protection and Programs Directorate, FEMA, and an interdisciplinary team developed the Protection FIOP after the other FIOPs to ensure alignment with other National protection policies, such as the Presidential Policy Directive 21: Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience, National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP 2013), and Executive Order 13636: Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity.

 

FEMA is hosting a series of 60-minute informational webinars with interested stakeholders to discuss the updates to the FIOPs. These webinars look to provide information regarding changes and updates as well as to answer questions related to the FIOPs.

 

Advanced registration is required due to space limitations. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis. To register, please visit the web links listed below.

 

All FIOPs, except Prevention, are available online.
