This is the December 2005 draft version of Homeland Security Presidential Directive 8. "The President directed the development of a National Preparedness Goal (or Goal) in Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD)-8. The Goal reorients how the Federal government proposes to strengthen the preparedness of the United States to prevent, protect against, respond to, and recover from terrorist attacks, major disasters, and other emergencies. The Goal establishes a vision, capabilities, and priorities for national preparedness. It should be utilized in conjunction with the three capabilities-based planning tools referenced in the Goal: the National Planning Scenarios, Universal Task List (UTL), and Target Capabilities List (TCL). Collectively, they identify key requirements that can help guide domestic all-hazards preparedness efforts."
