"Complex and emerging 21st Century threats, like the horrific attacks of September 11th, 2001, remind Americans that we all share responsibility for homeland security. All levels of government, the private sector, and non-governmental organizations must work together to prepare for, prevent, respond to, and recover from major events, including terrorist attacks, natural disasters, and other emergencies, that exceed the capabilities of any single entity. To address this requirement, Homeland Security Presidential Directive" (HSPD-5: Management of Domestic Incidents) and Homeland Security Presidential Directive " 8 (HSPD-8: National Preparedness) establish national initiatives that develop a common approach to domestic incident management, including the National Response Plan (NRP), the National Incident Management System (NIMS), and the National Preparedness Goal (the Goal)."
