PPD-8 Overview
Why is it Important?
 This collaborative PPD-8 effort:
 Focuses on involving the whole community in preparedness activities
 Uses a risk-based approach to support preparedness
 Builds core capabilities to confront any challenge
 Integrates efforts across the mission areas of Prevention, Protection,
Mitigation, Response and Recovery
 Assesses performance outcomes to measure and track progress
Ultimately, it will help us understand how we can all work together
to keep our nation safe and resilient.

PPD-8 Overview
National Preparedness Goal
National Preparedness Goal
A secure and resilient nation with the capabilities required across the
whole community to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to,
and recover from the threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk.
 The National Preparedness Goal
 Is informed by the risk of specific threats and vulnerabilities – including
regional variations
 Defines what it means for the whole community to be prepared for all
types of disasters and emergencies
 Addresses prevention, protection, mitigation, response and recovery
 Emphasizes a whole community approach that optimizes the use of
available resources
 Describes 31 core capabilities that will help us address our greatest risks

PPD-8 Overview
National Preparedness System
 The National Preparedness System outlines an organized process for
everyone in the whole community to move forward with their
preparedness activities and achieve the National Preparedness Goal.
 Identifying and Assessing Risk
 Estimating Capability Requirements
 Building and Sustaining Capabilities
 Planning to Deliver Capabilities
 Validating Capabilities
 Reviewing and Updating

Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment
What is THIRA?
 THIRA is a common risk-assessment
process that:
 Helps whole community members identify
and understand likely vulnerabilities. Simply
put, you need to understand your risks in
order to manage them
 Reduces duplication of efforts by building
on risk assessment efforts already in place
 The THIRA process is covered in
Comprehensive Preparedness Guide 201:
Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk
Assessment, which was released in April
Ways to Apply a THIRA
Preparedness efforts that can
also be enhanced by a THIRA
 Hazard mitigation plans
 Emergency operations plans
 Strategic planning for
prioritizing assets
 Equipment purchases and
personnel hiring
 Public awareness campaigns
 Exercises
 Training

PPD-8 Overview
THIRA is a Five-Step, Adaptable Process
 Identify the threats and hazards of concern: Identify the
emergency situations that could happen in your community.
 Give the threats and hazards context: Describe how a threat or
hazard could happen in your community, and when and where it
could happen.
 Examine the core capabilities using the threats and hazards:
Determine how each threat or hazard could affect the core
capabilities designed to accomplish the National Preparedness Goal.
 Set capability targets: Using the information defined in the first
three steps, set the level of capability a community needs to prevent,
protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from its risks.
 Apply the results: Use the capability targets to decide how to use
resources from the whole community.

PPD-8 Overview
Neighbor Helping Neighbor is Key for
Identifying Resources
 The THIRA process represents a neighbor helping neighbor way of
thinking about resources. Communities and jurisdictions should look
to the whole community as a resource for filling gaps in core
 Whole community members are encouraged to:
 Work together and share their assessment findings
 Determine whether they have common core capabilities and capability
 Pool resources to build and improve the core capabilities needed to
address common risks
 If the resources do not exist in the whole community to build or
improve core capabilities, then jurisdictions could consider grants.

Fourth Step: Planning to Deliver Capabilities
 The National Planning System
is under development.
 It will focus on a few key areas:
 People
 Processes and products
 Enablers
 Coordination and management

PPD-8 Overview
National Planning Frameworks
 There will be five National Planning Frameworks:
 Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, and Response are under White House review now.
 The National Disaster Recovery Framework was released in September 2011.
 Each Framework:
Identifies the scope (guiding principles, scope of mission area, application of risk)
Summarizes the roles and responsibilities of each part of the whole community
Defines the mission area’s core capabilities, along with examples of key activities
Defines the coordinating structures – either new or existing – that enable the
effective delivery of the core capabilities
Describes the relationships to other mission areas
Identifies relevant planning assumptions required to inform the development of
interagency operational plans and department level plans
Provides information that state, local, tribal, and territorial governments and private
sector partners can use to develop or revise their plans
Leverages concepts from existing national doctrine where possible (such as the
National Incident Management System)

PPD-8 Overview
Federal Interagency Operational Plans
 The Federal Interagency Operational Plans are being developed to
guide the execution of each of the five frameworks.
 These Federally focused plans are intended to:
 Be a more detailed concept of operations
 Integrate and synchronize national-level Federal capabilities to support
the plans at all levels of government
 Describe critical tasks and responsibilities to include resource, personnel
and sourcing requirements
 Provide specific provisions for the rapid integration of resources and
 Be consistent with Comprehensive Preparedness Guide (CPG) 101
 They are due to the White House on September 25, 2012.

National Preparedness Report
 The first annual National Preparedness Report was submitted to the
White House on March 30, 2012, and is available for download at
 Coordinated with executive departments and agencies in consultation with
the whole community
 Summarizes the progress being made toward developing and maintaining
the performance objectives related to the core capabilities described in
the Goal

Coordination, Intelligence and Information Sharing, Environmental
Response/Health and Safety, Mass Search and Rescue Operations,
Operational Communications, Public Health and Medical Services

 The Effort to Build and Sustain Preparedness comprises four key
 A comprehensive campaign to build and sustain national preparedness, to
include public outreach and community-based and private-sector
programs to enhance national resilience
 Federal preparedness
 Federal preparedness assistance (i.e., grants and technical assistance)
 National research and development efforts
