ABSTRACT

Success of Future Disaster Response and Recovery Efforts Depends on FEMA Addressing Current Vulnerabilities   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Highlights: "Multiple hurricanes in 2017 exposed weaknesses in Federal, state, and local governments' capabilities to respond to concurrent disasters. We previously published more than two dozen reports resulting in 115 recommendations to improve Federal disaster response. This report provides a summary of our previous findings and recommendations, which may inform future disaster response efforts. FEMA should share this report with its PA [public assistance] grant recipients and subrecipients to promote their awareness and improvement in the systemic areas identified."
