Fact Sheet: FEMA 101: Getting to Know the Agency

FEMA has a clear mission: help people before, during and after a disaster.

Focused on the importance of preparedness for the whole nation, FEMA has coordinated the federal government’s role regarding all domestic disasters, whether natural or man-made. The agency was designed to bring a unified structure and order to the process of federal disaster assistance and to work with state, local and tribal governments in the process.

FEMA is divided into 10 regional offices that cover all 50 states, plus its territories.
