ABSTRACT

Strengthening National Preparedness: Capabilities-Based Planning   [open pdf - 148KB]

"Homeland Security Presidential Directive 8: National Preparedness (HSPD-8) calls for an all-hazards National Preparedness Goal (the Goal) that establishes measurable priorities, targets, and a common approach to developing needed capabilities. The Goal sets forth a Capabilities-Based Planning approach to help balance the potential threat and magnitude of terrorist attacks, major disasters, and other emergencies with the resources required to prevent, respond to, and recover from them. Defining risk-based target levels of capability for the Goal involves identifying a plausible range of major events; the tasks to be performed in prevention, protection, response, and recovery that would require a coordinated national effort; and the specific capabilities and levels of capability that would minimize the impact on lives, property, and the economy."
