Response Division

Glenn Cannon - Director, Response Division


The Response Division provides the core, coordinated federal operational, and logistical disaster response capability needed to save and sustain lives, minimize suffering, and protect property in a timely and effective manner in communities that become overwhelmed by natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or other emergencies.

Response program activities encompass the coordination of all federal emergency management response operations, response planning, logistics programs and integration of federal, state, tribal and local disaster programs.  This coordination ensures efficient and effective delivery of immediate emergency assistance to individuals and communities impacted and overwhelmed by these disasters, emergencies, or acts of terrorism.
