Are Cities and Communities required to have disaster plans for natural disasters?

    On March 1, 2003, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) became part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). FEMA is required to send out guides and reports to help people prepare and recover from natural disasters. The Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act allows federal authorities to carry out these response programs. However, a recent government report found that planning for catastrophes is usually inadequate because it has been conducted without regional coordination. Of course it would be difficult to prepare for every sort of natural disaster in every type of setting. It is best to make your own preparednes plans instead of relying on the government when/if these events do occur.
