The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is responsible for integrating federal disaster logistics efforts—that is, the ability to deliver goods to disaster survivors. The National Response Framework (NRF) guides how the nation is to respond to all types of disasters, and its Emergency Support Function #7 (ESF 7) Logistics Annex describes the actions that FEMA is to take in collaborating with federal partners and state and local stakeholders to deliver disaster logistics support and assess state and local logistics capabilities. This book discusses the extent to which FEMA has implemented ESF 7 guidance and incorporated leading practices for interagency collaboration with its federal partners; and implemented ESF 7 guidance in collaborating with state and local stakeholders and incorporated effective program management practices for its logistics assessment program.
