The Basics of Planning

  • Community members share responsibility for protecting themselves, their families, their organizations, and their property. They should develop plans for what to do in case of an emergency. A plan is a set of intended actions through which one expects to achieve a goal. Planning that includes the whole community helps to build a resilient community.
  • Planning is a foundational element of the National Preparedness System and anchors nearly every activity that emergency management partners undertake to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to and recover from all threats and hazards.
