FEMA Announces Toolkit on Implementation of Community Lifelines

FEMA is releasing a new community lifelines toolkit to assist emergency managers in identifying their critical needs and resources during disaster response. Following the 2017 hurricane season, FEMA began using the lifelines concept during response events to quickly identify incident impacts and how information was organized and reported during the disaster.

The lifelines concept simplifies incident information to provide decision-makers with clearly identified impacts to critical community services and root causes that inform response and recovery actions. This concept provides actionable information that assist in the federally supported, state managed, and locally executed response.

The Community Lifelines Implementation Toolkit provides whole community partners the information and resources to understand lifelines and coordinate with entities using lifelines. It serves as basic guidance for how to implement the lifeline construct during incident response.
