Obama Signs New Presidential Policy Directive on National Preparedness

On March 30, DHS announced that President Barack Obama signed a new Presidential Policy Directive (PPD) on National Preparedness. "The Directive outlines the President’s vision for strengthening the security and resilience of the United States through systematic preparation for threats to the security of the Nation, including acts of terrorism, pandemics, significant accidents, and catastrophic natural disasters. The Directive follows a comprehensive review of national preparedness policy and replaces Homeland Security Presidential Directive 8 (HSPD-8) (2003) and HSPD-8 Annex I (2007). The Directive emphasizes three national preparedness principles...and calls for the development of an overarching National Preparedness Goal that identifies the core capabilities necessary for preparedness, defined as a spectrum of five broad efforts."
