"The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is responsible for coordinating the Federal response to disasters and for providing Federal guidance to State, local, Tribal, and Territorial emergency management authorities for all foreseeable emergencies in the United States and U.S. Territories. To improve the Nation's emergency preparedness and response capabilities, FEMA believes that formal guidelines are needed to help dam owners, in coordination with emergency management authorities, effectively develop and exercise Emergency Action Plans (EAPs) for dams. The purpose of the guidance in this document is to meet that need. This document is an update of FEMA 64, 'Federal Guidelines for Dam Safety: Emergency Action Planning for Dam Owners' (2004)."
