What is Emergency Management?

These Principles of Emergency Management were adopted in 2007 by a
work group of emergency managers and educators chartered by the
FEMA's Emergency Management Institute (EMI). For more information
on education and research in emergency management, visit EMI's Higher
Education Project.

Definition, Vision, Mission and Principles

Definition

Emergency management is the managerial function charged with creating
the framework within which communities reduce vulnerability to hazards
and cope with disasters.

Vision

Emergency management seeks to promote safer, less vulnerable communities
with the capacity to cope with hazards and disasters.

Mission

Emergency management protects communities by coordinating and integrating
all activities necessary to build, sustain, and improve the capability
to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to, and recover from
threatened or actual natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or other man made
disasters.
