"Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano today announced a key milestone in the Department's efforts to develop a robust small business preparedness plan - soliciting public comment on a private sector readiness certification program specifically tailored to the needs of small businesses. 'Ensuring America's small businesses have the critical information and training they need to better respond to disasters will strengthen the entire nation's preparedness and resilience,' said Secretary Napolitano. DHS published a notice in the Federal Register today seeking public comment on its proposed plan for implementing separate classifications and methods of certification for small businesses under PS-Prep. This first-of-its-kind program will tailor voluntary private sector preparedness certification standards to specifically meet the needs and capabilities of America's small businesses."
