Congress has provided FEMA with a broad legislative mandate that consists of programs to address floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, dam safety, and other hazards. FEMA links these programs together in a multi-objective that when used to their full advantage can help communities build a foundation for disaster resistance. When a disaster is imminent, or has occurred, local governments take immediate steps to warn and evacuate the public, alleviate suffering, and protect life and property. If they need additional help to respond the situation, communities may call upon the emergency assistance authorities of their state.
