Abstract : This paper provides an overview of the strategic planning that has taken place in preparation for a Federal response to a disaster. The primary document governing the Federal response to disasters is the Federal Response Plan. Since its release in April 1992 and subsequent distribution, the Plan has served as the umbrella document for Federal planning and response to disasters, regardless of magnitude. Coupled with a review of the planning is the need to review various documents which evaluated the Plan or related to actual responses to determine if planning has been adequate and provided an effective and efficient response. Based on the aforementioned review, recommendations addressing potential or real deficiencies in the Plan will be presented.
