DHS/FEMA/PIA – 036 Emergency Notification System

Emergency Notification System, April 7, 2014, PDF, 14 pages.  FEMA’s Office of Response and Recovery (ORR), Response Directorate, Operations Division, FEMA Operations Center, operates and directs the Emergency Notification System (ENS).  ENS provides alerts, notifications, warnings, and other similar operations during all hazards, threats, and emergencies to designated FEMA personnel, DHS employees, detailees, contractors, and employees of other participating federal, state, and local agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGO) in the event of a scheduled exercise or an actual emergency. FEMA conducted this PIA because ENS collects, uses, maintains, retrieves, and disseminates PII in order to provide this service to DHS.
