As communities nationwide face incidents of increased complexity and scope, they require resources from across agency and jurisdictional lines to save lives, stabilize the incident, and protect property and the environment.
The National Resource Management Summit (NRMS)—held in April 2021 and co-hosted by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate (DHS S&T), and NAPSG Foundation—provided an opportunity to collaborate with the community in defining mission-critical requirements for resource management preparedness technology and tools to maximize value and increase use among state, local, tribal, and territorial agencies, and other partners.
The Key Findings and Action Plan for NRMS 2021 is now available. The report identifies key functional areas and corresponding solutions through which resource management preparedness technology can be advanced.
Through ongoing collaboration and engagement, we can collectively address key challenges and mature resource management and mutual aid coordination across our nation. This report and the recommendations identified therein provide one step toward that solution.
This effort was made possible through a partnership with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate (Agreement #70RSAT18CB0000041).
