Purpose Statement

The IAEM-USA Federal Sector Emergency Managers Caucus seeks to advance comprehensive emergency management throughout the federal government through preparedness activities of planning, organizing, training, exercising, learning, and improving. The caucus brings together IAEM-USA members who focus on and manage federal preparedness activities, such as presidential and legally directed programs, to discuss and share best practices and ideas to improve overall national resiliency. Caucus members manage Occupant Emergency Programs for federal facilities and Continuity of Operations (COOP) Programs for federal agencies, and the Caucus provides a forum to collaborate on these programs among federal emergency managers stationed across the United States and worldwide. In addition, the caucus seeks to advance its goals, concerns, and views to IAEM-USA committees and leadership, integrating federal equities into IAEM activities and events.
