National Preparedness Report [2015]   [open pdf - 13MB]

From the Executive Summary: "This report marks the fourth 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 report presents an opportunity to assess 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. The 2015 National Preparedness Report focuses primarily on preparedness activities undertaken or reported during 2014. The intent of the National Preparedness Report is to provide the Nation with practical insights on preparedness that can inform decisions about program priorities, resource allocations, and community actions. The 2015 National Preparedness Report places particular emphasis on highlighting preparedness progress in implementing the National Planning Frameworks (the Frameworks) across the Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery mission areas. The Frameworks describe how the whole community works together to achieve the goal of a secure and resilient Nation."
