Whatever the disaster, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, leads the federal government’s response as part of a team of responders.
DHS/FEMA/PIA-028 Privacy Impact Assessment for the Mapping Information Platform (MIP)
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP), and Office of Academic Engagement (OAE) are developing a web-enabled Campus Resilience (CR) system which will provide practical and immediately useable processes and tools to a wide array of campus communities. The CR system will be developed through targeted community engagement with six selected university and college campuses via the Campus Resilience Pilot Program (CR Pilot). With a final goal of making America’s campuses more resilient, the CR Pilot must include these elements: (1) promote FEMA’s Whole Community philosophy, (2) draw upon existing DHS resources and also those originating from the Department of Education (ED) and the Department of Justice (DOJ), and (3) assist American schools to proactively assess and plan for major man-made or natural incidents.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and its federal partners remain in close coordination with state, local, and tribal governments to coordinate and provide resources as needed in connection with preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation associated with Hurricane Harvey impacting Texas and Louisiana.
