Guam - Guam now has an official Catastrophic Typhoon Plan, as the Federal Emergency Management Agency signed-off on the response blueprint of the government following a Category 4 typhoon.  FEMA Region IX administrator Nancy Ward says the plan shapes the rules of engagement to help guide federal and territorial agencies in a unified response to a host of challenges.

"I hope it provides a sense of confidence most importantly that the federal, territorial, local government, private sector and community-based organizations have all come together to unify their efforts should something happen," said Ward.  "That we know how to integrate federal resources that are needed quickly, we know that we won't miss a beat in trying to respond to what's happening here on the ground."

Guam Homeland Security and Office of Civil Defense personnel will be at the Agana Shopping Center tomorrow to educate the community about the new plan.
