The 2017 hurricane season was record-setting and tested the plans, training and expectations of all concerned, at all levels of government and the private sector. Released July 12, 2018, the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) 2017 Hurricane Season FEMA After-Action Report looks at FEMA’s successes and failures of the preparation, response, early recovery operations to hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
In the AAR, FEMA lists 18 key findings drawn from this review, and lists recommendations to implement in future mass disasters. Some topics addressed include staffing shortages, tracking resources, creating readiness stocks outside the continental United States, increasing state roles and responsibilities, and improving communications critical infrastructure.
