Blueprint For SafetyTM
A Game Plan for Building Safer Communities
The Blueprint for Safety Use Case portfolio is specifically designed to address the requirements needed for local municipalities to build safe, secure and sustainable communities.
As such, a critical element of the design is to adhere to guidelines and structures put in place by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Emergency Management Agency and other agencies to protect the well-being of United States citizens. The National Preparedness Goal identifies five mission areas in which it groups the 31 core capabilities (the distinct critical elements needed to achieve the goal).
The National Incident Management System (NIMS) is intended to be used by the whole community --the intended audience is individuals, families, communities, the private and nonprofit sectors, faith-based organizations, and local, state, tribal, territorial, insular areas, and Federal governments.
Collectively we define success as:
A secure and resilient Nation with the capabilities required across the whole community to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from the threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk.
