FEMA Releases Publication One: We Are FEMA

FEMA released the third edition of Publication 1 (Pub 1) and invites the whole community, including individuals and organizations, to read the new publication to better understand our mission and role in emergency management.

“Pub 1 is FEMA’s capstone doctrine, and explains the story of who we are, why we are here, what we face, what we do, and how we do it,” said Acting FEMA Administrator Pete Gaynor. “It unites us in our purpose because together, we are FEMA.”

FEMA has a dynamic workforce comprised of different backgrounds and identities that strengthens our ability to help, relate to, and support others during adversity.

  • We face the unknown. We have a distinct role shaped by unpredictable and ever-evolving threats and hazards.
  • We are a team. We unite to make a difference in the lives of others.
  • We are leaders. We are Federal leaders and together we help people before, during, and after disasters.

Pub 1 will provide our partners and the public with an understanding of the agency and a framework for the whole community to unite in purpose and mission.
