What is FEMA?

Its primary responsibilities include providing assistance to individuals and communities affected by natural or man-made disasters, supporting state and local governments in emergency management efforts, and promoting disaster preparedness and mitigation initiatives nationwide.

Disaster Response and Recovery

For many citizens of Guam, the destruction left by Typhoon Mawar is a fresh memory.
