The DHS PS-Prep™ program has been on this website’s radar screen for quite some time, and, with the announcement of this press release by DHS regarding ATT’s certification to one of the standards selected by DHS under the Voluntary Private Sector Preparedness Program (PS-Prep™) an important step has been taken, as Secretary Napolitano states “…to further enhance the readiness and resiliency of our Nation.”
AT&T’s certification is the first under the PS-Prep™ program, administered by DHS’ Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The PS-Prep™ program enables private sector organizations to enhance their capabilities for planning, responding to, and recovering from natural disasters and other threats while at the same time supporting its role as a critical component of a secure and resilient Nation under the National Preparedness Goal.
Hopefully, DHS will expand the list of participating entities in the PS-Prep™ program in the coming year.
