FEMA FEMA to Host National Response Framework Update Webinars

As part of FEMA’s renewed effort to build a national culture of preparedness, the agency is updating the National Response Framework (NRF) to incorporate lessons learned from the 2017 hurricane and wildfire season.

The updated NRF will be scalable, flexible and adaptable, using core capabilities identified in the National Preparedness Goal and will continue to focus on the capabilities necessary to save lives, protect property and the environment, and meet basic human needs during disasters.

FEMA is hosting a series of one-hour engagement webinars to describe the update and answer participants’ questions. These webinars are intended for the whole community, including individuals and communities, private and nonprofit sectors, faith-based organizations, and federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial partners.

The schedule and remaining webinar details are below. All times listed are Eastern Time:

Webinar: Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 10 a.m.


Webinar: Friday, Oct. 26. at 3 p.m.


Advance registration is required and on a first-come, first-served basis. To register, request assistive accommodations, or for more information, contact: NRF@fema.dhs.gov.
