More About the Program

In September 2011, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) requested that the CDC Foundation, in partnership with CDC’s OPHPR Learning Office, contribute to the development and implementation of its “Whole Community” approach to emergency management. The “Whole Community” is FEMA’s philosophical approach on how to conduct emergency management in a way that integrates the needs, capabilities, and resources across the community. It attempts to engage the full capacity of the private and nonprofit sectors, including businesses, faith-based and disability organizations, and the general public, in conjunction with the participation of local, tribal, state, territorial, and Federal government partners.
