It is the policy of the United States to have an Emergency Mobilization Preparedness Capability that will ensure that government at all levels, in partnership with the private sector and the American people, can respond decisively and effectively to any major national emergency with the defense of the United States as first priority.� {National Security Council Document NSDD-47}


The FAST START Plan has been produced with guidance from the National Readiness Chairman and various federal, state, and local emergency management agencies.� This plan is the centerpiece of this Post's readiness program.� Careful coordination was sought in its development.� This plan outlines our Post's capabilities in the engineering, architectural, and construction management fields.� Distribution was made to those agencies and individuals involved in disaster response in the Miami Valley, State of Ohio, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Region V, and SAME National HQ as seen in the plan.
