Please join the Homeland Security Policy Institute for a discussion about Presidential Policy Directive – 8: National Preparedness, featuring Brian Kamoie, Senior Director for Preparedness Policy on the White House National Security Staff.
President Barack Obama signed a new Presidential Policy Directive on National Preparedness last week and the Directive will be publicly released at this event.
The new policy outlines the President’s vision for strengthening the security and resilience of the United States through systematic preparation for threats to the security of the Nation, including acts of terrorism, pandemics, significant accidents, and catastrophic natural disasters. The Directive follows a comprehensive review of national preparedness policy and replaces Homeland Security Presidential Directive 8 (HSPD-8) (2003) and HSPD-8 Annex I (2007).
Featured Speaker: Brian Kamoie; Senior Director for Preparedness Policy; White House National Security Staff
Moderated By: Daniel Kaniewski; Deputy Director; Homeland Security Policy Institute
It looks like the event is scheduled for 10:30 until 12, east coast time, on Friday April 8th. According to HSIP, it will be webcast. See the HSPI site for details.
April 8, 2011 will mark the 1,175th day of the (first?) Obama Administration. That means 80% of the first term is over. Considering how long it took to develop, socialize, and sign HSPD 8, one wonder how long it will take to implement.
