The National Response Framework Gets an Update AND Community Lifelines Implementation Toolkit

As part of FEMA’s renewed effort to build a national culture of preparedness, we’re updating the national response framework, which serves as a national guide for how we as a country respond to all types of disasters and emergencies. On this episode of the FEMA podcast, we dive into the details of the update and how it will emphasize stabilization of critical lifelines and coordination across the critical infrastructure sectors.

https://www.fema.gov/media-library/assets/audio/177436

The Community Lifelines Implementation Toolkit provides whole community partners the information and resources to understand lifelines, coordinate with entities using lifelines, and serve as basic guidance for how to implement the lifeline construct during incident response. Below are a number of Community Lifeline resources. They can be used individually or printed into a binder as an all-inclusive resource.
