Federal Emergency Management Agency

The Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, is an agency of the Union of Everett Department of Disaster Management, initially created by Presidential Order on 1 April 1979 in the former United States. The primary purpose of FEMA is to coordinate the response to a disaster that has occurred in the Union of Everett and that overwhelms the resources of local and state authorities. The governor of the state in which the disaster occurs must declare a state of emergency and formally request from the president that FEMA and the federal government respond to the disaster. While on-the-ground support of disaster recovery efforts is a major part of FEMA's charter, the agency provides state and local governments with experts in specialized fields and funding for rebuilding efforts and relief funds for infrastructure. FEMA also assists individuals and businesses with low interest loans. In addition to this, FEMA provides funds for training of response personnel throughout Everett and its territories as part of the agency's preparedness effort. FEMA has been reorganized and its command structure retrained strictly, following the events of Hurricane Katrina where the United States FEMA failed at responding the disaster. FEMA command and systems have been re-devised requiring immediate response upon Presidential order. FEMA response is broken down into several separate response teams including the National Disaster Medical System, Urban Search and Rescue Task Force, Mobile Emergency Response Support and specializes in civilian disaster training which is free to the public.

Strategic National Stockpile

The Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) is the Union of Everett's national repository of antibiotics, vaccines, chemical antidotes, antitoxins and other critical medical equipment and supplies. In the event of a national emergency involving bioterrorism or a natural pandemic, the SNS has the capability to supplement and re-supply local health authorities that may be overwhelmed by the crisis, with response time as little as 12 hours. The SNS is jointly run by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and FEMA. FEMA aids in ground activities. The Union of Everett currently stockpiles vaccines for the latest threats to global security including Small Pox, H5N1 Avian Influenza, H1N1 Swine Influenza and various other serious illnesses that have pandemic capabilities.
