Federal Emergency Management Agency Strategic Plan FY 1998-FY 2002: Partnership for a Safer Future   [open pdf - 1MB]

"The first Strategic Plan in the history of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) was published in December 1994. As part of the process of FEMA's renewal, 'Partnership for a Safer Future' laid out the agency's mission and vision. We recognized that FEMA's role in making a safer future would require us to lay a solid foundation on which to build an effective organization of emergency management. We recognized that the organization would need to lead and support the Nation in a comprehensive, risk-based emergency management program. We also recognized that our mission to reduce the loss of life and property included protecting the Nation's institutions from all natural and man-made hazards. FEMA consequently began to direct efforts towards creating an agency that would restore the confidence of the American people and fulfill President Clinton's promise to 'be there' when America needed us. During the intervening four years, FEMA has enjoyed much success in its renewal. Internally, we improved management systems and streamlined operations to function more efficiently and with more accountability. […] This strategic plan includes revisions to FEMA's 1994 strategic plan. It fulfills the requirements of the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA), and covers fiscal years 1998 through 2002."
