Dennis, a master level instructor for FEMA/DHS, was quoted as saying “All planning processes should take an “All Hazards” Approach and the purpose of After-Action Reports allows all stakeholders to identify strengths and areas for improvement through a review of the effectiveness of preparedness and planning efforts for such an incident or an event. Corrective actions and lessons learned will be identified to create opportunities for improvement.
