Introduction

When a disaster or emergency occurs, local, State, and Federal governments as well as voluntary agencies respond immediately.  This collective response follows and step-by-step process that has been developed and revised through legislation and through lessons learned in previous disasters.  Step 1: A disaster or emergency occurs Step 2: Local and State governments activate their Emergency Response Plans and Emergency Operations Centers.  (The State may request a Presidential Disaster Declaration after these steps are taken.) The Declaration Process: Step 1 - Joint FEMA/State Preliminary Damage Assessment:  This involves and inspection of the area to document the impact of the event and to make an initial estimate of the dollar amount  of the damage.  Step 2- The Governor's request for assistance.  This request by law must declare that State and local resources are inadequte. (It must also include a damage estimate and describe assistance being requested). Step 3 - FEMA's recommendation to the President regarding the requestStep 4- The Presidential Declaration: The President decides whether to declare that a major disaster exists thereby making assistance under the Stafford Act.
