ATL PREVENTION RESEARCH L.L.C. is proud to support our U.S. Government “Community Safety and Resilience” agenda by hosting this website and associated online community, which features five carefully selected campaigns, designed to assist with important National priorities.
Statutes, Presidential Decision Directives (PDD), Government Accountability Office (GAO) Recommendations, and Administrative Agency Guidelines are periodically issued, and it is implied that pertinent organizations, agencies, and their constituents or affiliates will exercise due diligence and strive to fulfill, meet or exceed to these Directives, Recommendations, or Guidelines. This website and associated Community was prepared as a HUB for Ideas, Resources, and Information that will assist with fulfilling objectives in accordance with the “National Planning Frameworks,” and whereby “everyone” is represented, engaged and works together to advance or achieve our National Preparedness Goals. These “goals” are implemented as continuous improvements that will lead to an increasingly “secure and resilient nation with the capabilities required across the whole community to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from the threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk.”

GOALS OF CAMPAIGNS:
Community members at IdeaScale provide invaluable Ideas for each objective as they wish. All campaigns contain elements of the National Response Framework (which is an all-discipline, all-hazards, all-incidence schema that establishes a single, comprehensive Framework for the management of domestic incidents at all levels e.g. local, state, and “Incidences of National Significance”), including an all-inclusive and perpetuitous development process. Supporting policy and directives may include: HOMELAND SECURITY ACT 2002 TITLE-V, as well as, various Homeland Security Presidential Directives, National Continuity Policy, and (NSPD-51/HSPD-20) to consolidate and facilitate sharing of resources or information related to national domestic all-hazards preparedness goals. Although PDD’s and the National Response Framework cover broad-based initiatives, this community has focused special emphasis on HSPD-8 (unified agency preparedness), and further respects New PDD’s which emphasize “Mitigation.” We believe in and hope to promote an “All of Nation” approach, focusing on the building blocks of community resilience, prevention strategy, and seamless integration of our law enforcement, military, and intelligence professionals. Also, we will continue to support GAO budget goals and the volunteering goals of the National Office of Citizen Corp"s (FEMA - Individual and Community Preparedness Division) by attempting to generate match criteria for volunteers with various stakeholders and incidence scenarios. Annex-I National Planning and Communications are further supplemented herein via support for (IPS/CPG-101, NIMS, NRF & NIC). More specific campaign information and instructions are located on each campaign main page.
