National Mass Care Council Mission

The National Mass Care Council will coordinate the implementation of the National Mass Care Strategy. The National Mass Care Strategy provides a framework to enhance coordination among state, tribal, local and other national mass care stakeholders in order to create a more extensive mass care response capability throughout the Nation. The strategy highlights courses of action that may be taken to improve delivery of mass care services to the Nation, provides for five strategic goals to increase capabilities and capacities of the Whole Community to respond to a vast range of emergencies and disasters and supports the National Response Framework and Emergency Support Function #6.
