FEMA Region 8, Mitigation Division

FEMA’s mission is, “Helping people before, during, and after disasters.”
FEMA supports the people and communities of our Nation by providing experience, perspective, and resources in emergency management.

FEMA works with State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial governments to support the Nation’s disaster and emergency management needs. The U.S. Fire Administration is an office within FEMA with the goal of “working for a fire-safe America”. They provide National leadership to foster a solid foundation for FEMA’s fire and emergency services stakeholders in prevention, preparedness, and response.

In FEMA’s emergency management role, we:
▪ Raise risk awareness; educate in risk reduction options; and help to take action before disasters
▪ Alert, warn, and message; coordinate the Federal response; and apply and manage resources during disasters
▪ Coordinate Federal recovery efforts; provide resources; and apply insight to future risk after disasters

FEMA supports the National Cohesive Wildland Fire Strategy Goals of
• Maintain and Restore Landscapes
