Welcome to the department’s file room. All files have been created to help build capacity and capability. This series of templates has been designed to enhance your knowledge and processes and to foster collaboration between your organization’s department and other program areas. These tools were created on the request of disaster emergency managers who work dedicatedly to keep their communities safe and to reduce future disasters.
