The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s mission is simple - to help people before, during and after disasters. Floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, and forest fires, whatever the disaster, FEMA leads the federal government’s response as part of a team of responders.
FEMA provides disaster assistance to individuals, families and businesses whose property has been damaged or destroyed and whose losses are not covered by insurance.
FEMA’s employees are committed to serving our country before, during and after disasters. Every day more than 20,000 emergency managers work to make our nation safer, stronger and more prepared.
