    National Preparedness is aimed at strengthening the security and resilience of the Nation by preparing for the full range of 21st century risks that threaten national security, including weapons of mass destruction, cyber attacks, terrorism, pandemics, transnational threats and catastrophic natural disasters.

    National preparedness is a shared responsibility. As such, the PPD is designed to facilitate an integrated, all-of-nation/whole community, capabilities-based approach to preparedness. Involving federal partners, state, local and tribal leaders, the private sector, non-governmental organizations, faith based and community organizations ─ and most importantly the general public is vital to keeping people and communities safe and preventing the loss of life and property when disasters strike.

    Implementation of the PPD requires extensive outreach, collaboration and input from stakeholders at all levels of government, the private and non-profit sectors and also from the public.

    FEMA will coordinate closely with our partners throughout the homeland security and emergency management community, the private and non-profit sectors and with the public to implement the requirements included in PPD-8.

    Implementation Priorities

    PPD-8 sets a strategic vision for national preparedness using a comprehensive approach to preparedness. These include:
