Foresight is 2020: Disaster Preparedness Program Plans for the Next Fiscal Year

MAY 13, 2019 — The Disaster Preparedness Program (DPP) has started planning for FY2020! DPP staff gathered at the Disaster Response Center (DRC) May 7-9 for an FY2020 operational planning meeting.

Team members spent time discussing future activities and evaluating new opportunities for the coming fiscal year. The DPP team will work to finalize the FY20 operational plan in the coming months, including reaching out to folks across NOS and NOAA to solidify partnership activities and projects for FY20. Many thanks to everyone who provided input to the pre-meeting survey. Every last bit of input was evaluated. The DPP is the newest division level program in the NOAA Office of Response and Restoration (OR&R) and includes the DRC in Mobile, AL. Together, the DPP and the DRC help NOS prepare for disasters of all kinds, nationwide.
