Introduction
Natural and human-made disasters are becoming more common, raising the severity and
influencing many individuals than ever before. This way, formulating the processes, tools, and
useful techniques to control these disasters is becoming progressively important world priority.
According to Olshansky and Johnson (2014), the government has a critical role during
catastrophic disasters times. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), under the
Homeland Security department, must prepare, mitigate, protect, and provide recovery resources
during catastrophes. Even though the DMS previously confronted criticism due to lack of their
response regarding several catastrophes events, the department has currently adopted an
approach of all-hazards to facilitate the practices of the federal government, state, and society in
the management of the disaster. To ascertain the effectiveness of NRF and NIMS when
responding to human-made and natural calamity, it is crucial to conduct past analysis as well as
future analysis.
Review of Literature
Based on the September 11 attacks in 2001, President Bush anticipated the establishment
of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). There before, the work of this new department
was to oversee and organize a national strategy to offer protection to the U.S. against any attack
while giving a response to any future terrorism (Kemp, 2012). After a while, the department
became an independent department monitoring national homeland security efforts by
incorporating various parts of the Federal departments into an entity that is unified and single.
This way, the departments centers on both human-made and natural disasters. The Federal
Government agencies are currently using ICT devices to create awareness to every citizen
concerning preparation and responding to emergencies and disasters of every type. The president

victims of the catastrophe.
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is one of the agencies of the United
States DHS. Formed in 1979, FEMA comprises of approximately 2600 workers who operate at
the regional offices across the nation, in Washington D.C. at headquarters of FEMA as well as
their educational center in Emmitsburg Maryland. This way, the Federal Emergency
Management Agency utilizes the Federal Response Plan (FRP) to contemporize the government
response regarding disasters and emergencies. The FRP executes the goals of the Stafford Act
that determines the activities with a qualification to be disasters, highlights the regulation of
some federal agencies, and explains the fundamental methods and structures utilized for the
provision of federal help ("Resources--Federal Response Plan," 2017).
To promote the provision of Federal help, the FRP categorizes various groups of aid that
the country requires under the 12 Emergency Support Functions (ESFs). However, the 12
Emergency Support Functions encompasses transportation, communications, Engineering, and
public works, resource su...
