The National Protection Framework http://www.fema.gov/national-protection-framework-0 describes what the whole community should do to safeguard against acts of terrorism, natural disasters, and other threats or hazards. The whole community includes:  individuals (including those with disabilities and others with access and functional needs), businesses and nonprofits, faith-based and community groups, schools, and all levels of government. The Protection Framework also describes the core capabilities; roles and responsibilities; and coordinating structures that facilitate the protection of individuals, communities, and the Nation. This Framework is focused on actions to protect against the greatest risks in a manner that allows American interests, aspirations, and way of life to thrive.
