The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) was created in 1979, adopting a mission 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."
According to their website, "FEMA coordinates the federal government's role in preparing for, preventing, mitigating the effects of, responding to, and recovering from all domestic disasters, whether natural or man-made, including acts of terror."
FEMA supports citizens in a number of ways, including offering important information via their website. Visit FEMA's website for an entire list of services, information and resources. Several helpful pages included below.
