The Federal Emergency Management Agency is offering users a sneak preview of its new website to get feedback before it officially goes live.
FEMA Senior Manager for Digital Engagement Shayne Adamski said the new site aims to be more user-friendly with up-to-date information that is easier to navigate. To accomplish that goal, he said, FEMA has re-organized the main content sections, added drop-down menus and integrated a new search function.
Some notes on the new site from Adamski:
- First, in an effort to provide options and ease users into how the new site functions, the new re-designed site will be available while the old FEMA.gov site remains active. This will provide individuals the opportunity to be able to access information in the manner they are most comfortable and assist with easing them into a transition to the new site.
- Second, we want to let you know that through this re-design process we have been updating much of the content that you will find on FEMA.gov. As we continue to work, we still have some pages that are being brought up-to-date. So please understand that content continues to flow and is being updated as quickly as possible.
- Finally, like many projects of this magnitude, we anticipate that there will be some technical bugs in the system and we will work to address them as expeditiously as possible.
Feedback on the new site can be sent to FEMA-New-Media@fema.dhs.gov.
