Summary The President and Congress directed creation of a fully integrated, adaptable, all-hazards national preparedness system. The National Preparedness Guidelines (The Guidelines) and Target Capabilities List (TCL) establish the system's all-hazards framework. The Guidelines provide the vision and establishes national priorities. The TCL is a national-level, generic model of operationally ready capabilities defining all-hazards preparedness. Users should refer to the TCL to assess capabilities, identify needs, and inform plans and strategies taking into account their risk. It is important to understand that the TCL serves as a reference document and planning guide to preparedness and in no way serves as a prescription for program or resource requirements. The vision for the National Preparedness Guidelines is: A NATION PREPARED with coordinated capabilities to prevent, protect against, respond to, and recover from all hazards in a way that balances risk with resources and need. The Guidelines establish the following priorities to meet the Nation's most urgent needs and adopt a Capabilities-Based Planning process to define and build the capabilities to achieve the Guidelines: Expand regional collaboration, Implement the National Incident Management System and the National Response Plan, Implement the National Infrastructure Protection Plan, Strengthen information sharing and collaboration capabilities, Strengthen communications capabilities, Strengthen CBRNE detection, response, and decontamination capabilities, Strengthen medical surge and mass prophylaxis capabilities, Strengthen planning and citizen preparedness capabilities. The Target Capabilities List provides a guide to addressing the priorities and achieving the National Preparedness Guidelines.
