In (500 words or less) describe how you would apply emergency management lessons learned to support the National Preparedness Goal of 2018.

An excerpt from the 2018 National Preparedness Report follows:

“The National Preparedness Goal (the Goal) describes what it means for the United States to be prepared for all threats and hazards, including natural, technological, and human-caused incidents. The Goal itself defines a vision for national preparedness, namely: The Goal identifies 32 core capabilities that preparedness stakeholders need to build, sustain, and deliver. Core capabilities are distinct, critical components needed to achieve the goal of a secure and resilient Nation. These core capabilities provide a common vocabulary for understanding preparedness efforts and discussing tasks across the whole community, enhancing coordination between preparedness stakeholders. The capabilities-based approach for building the Nation’s preparedness is applicable to any type of disaster. In addition, continuity planning and operations are inherent components of each core
2 capability and increase the likelihood that organizations can deliver core capabilities of each mission area, especially during catastrophic incidents that impact resource availability. While the 2017 disaster season was primarily characterized by major hurricanes and wildfires, future years could introduce different types of incidents. Focusing on capabilities rather than specific
hazards enables communities to build a culture of preparedness and ready the Nation for catastrophic disasters. The Goal organizes these core capabilities into five mission areas that provide a higher-level structure for organizing preparedness activities:
▪ Prevention: Preventing an imminent, threatened, or actual act of terrorism or extremist violence;
▪ Protection: Protecting citizens, residents, visitors, and assets in a manner that allows interests, aspirations, and way of life to thrive;
▪ Mitigation: Mitigating the loss of life and property by lessening the impact of future disasters;
▪ Response: Responding quickly to save lives, protect property and the environment, and meet basic human needs in the immediate aftermath of an incident; and
▪ Recovery: Recovering through a focus on the timely restoration, strengthening, and revitalization of infrastructure, housing, and a sustainable economy, as well as the health, social, cultural, historic, and environmental fabric of communities affected by an incident.
