The 2021 National Preparedness Report (2021 NPR) summarizes progress made, and challenges that remain, in building and sustaining the capabilities needed to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from the threats, hazards, and incidents that pose the greatest risk to the nation. For this report, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) used the events of 2020 to draw broader conclusions about national risk and capabilities and identified management opportunities to build those capabilities and reduce risk. This annual report offers all levels of government, Tribes, the private and nonprofit sectors, and the public practical insights into preparedness that supports decisions about program priorities, resource allocation, and actions that can create more resilient communities. The information in this report was
gleaned from open-source research, data analysis of FEMA products, such as the community Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA) and Stakeholder Preparedness Review (SPR), and an interagency data call of more than 75 offices throughout the federal government.
