Notice of this meeting is given under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, 5 U.S.C. App. (Pub. L. 92-463). The National Advisory Council (NAC) advises the Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on all aspects of emergency management. The NAC incorporates State, local, and Tribal governments, and private sector partners' input in the development and revision of FEMA policies and strategies. FEMA's Office of the NAC serves as the focal point for all NAC coordination.
Agenda: The FEMA National Advisory Council will be meeting by teleconference to discuss the National Exercise Program (NEP) two-year cycle 2013-1014. The Council will discuss potential recommendations on the General Objectives for inclusion in the NEP two-year cycle. The Council will use the specific priorities from the Principal Objectives as guidelines to develop their recommendations for General Objectives. FEMA's National Exercise Division (NED) is responsible for providing exercise guidance and planning support to the Nation's emergency preparedness community. NED works through well-established and expanding partnerships within all levels of government, the private sector, and international communities. Exercise support is administered through the NEP. Information regarding the NEP, the Principal Objectives, and General Objectives can be found in the relative sections at: http://www.fema.gov/national-exercise-program.
The Federal Advisory Committee Act requires that notices of meetings of advisory committees be announced in the Federal Register 15 days prior to the meeting date. This notice of a teleconference of the NAC is published less than 15 days prior to the teleconference due to closure of Federal government offices during Hurricane Sandy. Since the NAC is meeting via teleconference, there will not be an undue burden on the public to arrange travel to attend this meeting. Notice of this meeting is also provided on the NAC's Web site at http://www.fema.gov/national-advisory-council.
W. Craig Fugate,
Administrator, Federal Emergency Management Agency.
