Disaster Response:
Federal Government



The links here are contact and informational sources for Federal governmental offices, President, DHS/FEMA, EPA, Corp of Engineers, USDA/FS/FSA/NRCS, etc and are given along with some disaster reference material to assist states, communities, landowners, service providers and others to understand the process of disaster preparation and response on a “Federal” level particularly as it applies to woody debris and timber.

It should be noted here that in a disaster situation many different branches and departments of the federal government play critical roles in planning, response, and recovery. Those listed here are the principle agencies responsible for the preparation, response and recovery efforts including the management of debris and forest recovery and reestablishment.
