REPP Communities

The FEMA REP community leads the nation in building a culture of preparedness, strengthening and sustaining the critical elements necessary to support the five mission areas all while safeguarding the health and safety of the public in communities surrounding commercial Nuclear Power Plans.

As described in U.S. Presidential Policy Directive 8 (PPD-8), national preparedness is a shared responsibility of all levels of government, the private and nonprofit sectors, and individual citizens. Everyone can contribute to safeguarding the nation from harm. The National Preparedness Goal is the cornerstone for the implementation of PPD-8; identified within it are the Nation’s 32 core capabilities. Since FEMA supports and encourages a meaningful, collaborative relationship with the whole community, the incorporation of the National Preparedness System into REP Program guidance helps ensure emergency planning is risk- and threat-informed and appropriate for the whole community.

There are several REPP Communities within PrepToolkit where you can communicate, share best practices, lessons learned, emerging issues, and ideas with other members of the REP community nationwide. Provided below are quick links to several of the REPP Communities within PrepToolkit.
