From the Summary: "FEMA Region I, in close coordination with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of the Assistant Secretary of Preparedness and Response (ASPR) Region I and the Northeast Consulate General Offices of the United Kingdom and Canada, convened the International Notification and Situational Awareness Working Group (INSAWG) to improve the procedure of consular notification when foreign nationals and visitors are impacted by disasters. This notification process can help identify and provide appropriate healthcare and human services for foreign nationals and visitors. It can also assist these individuals in arranging translation services, notifying family members, and facilitating travel arrangements."
