Updated Federal Interagency Operational Plans Released
*** FEMA released updated Federal Interagency Operational Plans (FIOP) for three of the five mission areas outlined in the National Preparedness Goal: Mitigation, Response, and Recovery. In addition to the updated FIOPs, FEMA has released the first edition of the Protection FIOP. The fifth FIOP – the Prevention FIOP – contains sensitive information for the law enforcement community and is not publically available.
All five plans link together the range of activities conducted by all of the Federal departments and agencies involved in national preparedness. They specifically outline the concept of operations for integrating and synchronizing existing national-level Federal capabilities to support local, state, tribal, territorial, insular area, and Federal plans.
