Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has nearly 7,500 employees across the country working to support citizens and first responders to work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards. On March 1, 2003, FEMA became part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
FEMA employees work all over the country – at FEMA Headquarters, the ten regional offices, the National Emergency Training Center, Center for Domestic Preparedness/Noble Training Center, and other locations – to support the larger emergency management team. The FEMA team includes federal partners, state, tribal and local officials, the private sector, non-profits and faith-based groups, and the general public.
in 2011, FEMA announced the “Whole Community” approach that reinforces the fact that FEMA is only one part of the nation’s emergency management team; all resources must be leveraged in preparing for, responding to, recovering from and mitigating against all hazards; and that collectively we must meet the needs of the entire community in each of these areas.
