The Lessons Learned Information Sharing website is a Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency program. LLIS.gov serves as the national, online network of lessons learned, best practices, and innovative ideas for the emergency management and homeland security communities. This information and collaboration resource helps emergency response providers and homeland security officials prevent, protect against, respond to, and recover from terrorist attacks, natural disasters, and other emergencies. LLIS.gov provides federal, state, and local responders and emergency managers with a wealth of information and front-line expertise on effective planning, training, and operational practices across homeland security functional areas.
LLIS.gov includes a library of exclusive documents and user-submitted materials related to all aspects of homeland security and emergency management. Lessons Learned, Good Stories, and Practice Notes produced by LLIS.gov are researched in consultation with subject-matter experts or identified in after action reports, but should not be considered peer-reviewed research. LLIS.gov-produced Best Practices are peer-reviewed by a panel of subject-matter experts.
