"This report marks the third National Preparedness Report. Required annually by 'Presidential Policy Directive 8: National Preparedness,' the 'National Preparedness Report' summarizes progress in building, sustaining, and delivering the 31 core capabilities described in the 'National Preparedness Goal' (the Goal). Each year, the 'National Preparedness Report' presents an opportunity to evaluate gains that whole community partners--including all levels of government, private and nonprofit sectors, faith-based organizations, communities, and individuals-- have made in preparedness and to identify where challenges remain. This year's report focuses primarily on preparedness activities undertaken or reported during 2013. The intent of the 'National Preparedness Report' is to provide the Nation--not just the Federal Government--with practical insights on core capabilities that can inform decisions about program priorities, resource allocation, and community actions. Based on stakeholder feedback, the 2014 report places a renewed emphasis on approachable language, clear visuals, and concise findings that are interesting and useful to preparedness professionals and non- experts alike. While the 'National Preparedness Report' focuses on domestic efforts, the Federal Government also engages with international partners and organizations to understand and collaborate on issues such as cybersecurity, supply chain integrity and security, and infrastructure security and resilience."
