About FEMA

We Are Always Ready To Help You

The FCT Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) was established by Section 8 of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) Act of 1999 – which stipulates “the establishment for each state of the Federation, a State Emergency Management Committee”. Hence, it’s coming into being in June 2013 after due approval by the Honourable Minister, FCT, to operate as a State-level Agency in line with the Act.

Disaster Management

FEMA is responsible for managing disasters, both natural and man-made, within the FCT. This includes developing and implementing emergency plans, conducting risk assessments, and coordinating disaster response and recovery efforts.

Forecasting Response and Mitigation

FEMA is also responsible for forecasting potential disasters and taking preventive measures to mitigate their impact. This involves conducting risk assessments, identifying vulnerable areas and populations, and developing plans to reduce the impact of disasters.

Emergency Services

FEMA coordinates and supports emergency services during disasters, including search and rescue operations, medical assistance, and evacuation efforts. The agency also works to ensure that critical infrastructure and essential services are maintained during disasters.

Relief and Rehabilitation

FEMA plays a crucial role in providing relief and rehabilitation to affected communities following disasters. This includes providing emergency shelter, food, and medical care, as well as supporting long-term recovery efforts such as rebuilding damaged infrastructure and restoring basic services.
