FEMA Seeks Stakeholder Feedback on Trio of Guidance Documents (9/30/2019)
The Federal Emergency Management Agency released for national engagement three documents: one to help private sector organizations in emergency response activities, and a pair that enhance operations within Emergency Operations Centers.The documents on which FEMA is seeking feedback are the “NIMS Implementation Fact Sheet for Private Sector Organizations,” the “Operational Period Shift Briefing Template” and “SAMHSA’s Stress Management.”
This national engagement period will conclude at 5 p.m. EDT on Oct. 24, 2019. National engagement provides an opportunity for interested parties to comment on the draft documents, to ensure they are relevant for all stakeholders involved in emergency management activities.
The National Incident Management System (NIMS) is a fundamental doctrine on how the nation manages incidents by enabling organizations from across the county to work together during incidents, events and emergencies.
Private sector organizations play a vital role in the whole community approach to emergency management activities. A well-developed, current NIMS Implementation Fact Sheet will continue to help guide and promote incorporating NIMS into private sector organizational incident response plans.
Emergency Operation Centers play a critical role in incident management and response. FEMA is releasing draft documents to address shift templates and stress management within the EOC.
FEMA will sponsor a 30-day National Engagement Period during which the agency will solicit feedback from its stakeholders. Comments received during this period will be reviewed, adjudicated and, as appropriate, incorporated.
To view the three draft document and feedback forms, please visit https://www.fema.gov/national-incident-management-system/national-engagement.
