Overview of the National Planning Frameworks [June 2016]
United States. Department of Homeland Security
"The National Preparedness System outlines an organized process for the whole community to move forward with their preparedness activities and achieve the National Preparedness Goal. The National Preparedness System integrates efforts across the five preparedness mission areas -- Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery -- in order to achieve the goal of a secure and resilient Nation. The National Planning Frameworks, which are part of the National Preparedness System, set the strategy and doctrine for building, sustaining, and delivering the core capabilities identified in the National Preparedness Goal. Integrated to ensure interoperability across all mission areas, the Frameworks describe the coordinating structures and alignment of key roles and responsibilities for the whole community. The frameworks address the roles of individuals; nonprofit entities and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs); the private sector; communities; critical infrastructure; governments; and the Nation as a whole. This document is comprised primarily of excerpts from the National Planning Frameworks and presents a high-level introduction to each framework, as well as the key themes identified across the frameworks. The mission areas represent a spectrum of activity. They are highly interdependent and there is regular coordination among departments and agencies working to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from all threats and hazards."
