Summary As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Nation is facing unprecedented challenges as we respond to additional disasters, anticipate emergent incidents, and prepare for the 2020 hurricane season. Although the operating environment has changed, the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) mission of helping people before, during, and after disasters remains the same. Federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) officials, along with the private sector and non-governmental organizations (NGO), must partner together to fulfill their respective missions and help disaster survivors. As the Nation continues to respond to and recover from COVID-19 while posturing for the coming hurricane season, emergency managers must continue to operate under a framework of a locally executed, state managed, and federally supported approach to incident stabilization.
This document is comprised of two main sections: response planning and recovery planning. Throughout each section, emergency managers will find detailed information on FEMA's operating posture and guidance for SLTT governments. In the appendixes, emergency managers will find emergency managers are the primary audience for this document, this guidance can also be used by Emergency Support Function (ESF) and Recovery Support Function (RSF) partners as these departments and agencies plan and posture for the 2020 hurricane season.
