Emergency Preparedness

In the Department of Defense Emergency Preparedness Guidance, we are reminded that in the event of crisis, preparedness will be vital to DoD's ability to continue to execute critical national security functions and warfighting missions, both at home and overseas. DCPAS provides guidance to the DoD civilian HR community to ensure that our workforce is supported while we continue to meet the preparedness mission imperative.
