WGA Policy Resolution 2024-05, Disaster Preparedness and Response

The resolution recognizes the role Governors have in coordinating the four phases of emergency management: mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery. It also highlights federal agencies’ roles and emphasizes the need for cooperation and clear communication between all levels of government and members of the public. In any disaster or emergency situation, good communication is key to developing and executing an effective response, promoting public confidence in that response, and empowering citizens to make informed decisions about their safety and welfare.
