Coronavirus Pandemic: FEMA Administrator Letter to Emergency Managers



Attached is FEMA Administrator Pete Gaynor’s June 1, 2020 letter to the Nation’s Emergency Managers, which highlights the approach to the three-month mark of our Nation’s response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic as the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season officially begins today.

In this letter, Administrator Gaynor addresses: the importance of all-hazards preparedness in a COVID-19 environment; the forecast for the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season; the release of the COVID-19 Pandemic Operational Guidance for the 2020 Hurricane Season; the release of the All-Hazards Preparedness in a Pandemic Exercise Starter Kit along with the recently released Exercise Starter Kit for Reconstituting Operations; as well as the use of Fiscal Year 2020 Emergency Management Performance Grant Program (EMPG) funds and Supplemental funds.

Administrator Gaynor’s guidance is a follow-on to his first two letters to emergency managers from March 27, 2020 and April 16, 2020.

The letter is available on the FEMA website, as well.
