"Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano today announced the adoption of the final standards for the Voluntary Private Sector Preparedness Accreditation and Certification Program (PS-Prep)--a major milestone in DHS' implementation of a program recommended by the 9/11 Commission to improve private sector preparedness for disasters and emergencies. 'Private organizations across the country--from businesses to universities to non-profit organizations--have a vital role to play in bolstering our disaster preparedness and response capabilities,' said Secretary Napolitano. 'These new standards will provide our private sector partners with the tools they need to enhance the readiness and resiliency of our nation.' PS-Prep is a partnership between DHS and the private sector that enables private entities to receive emergency preparedness certification from a DHS accreditation system created in coordination with the private sector."
