National Response Plan

Mandate Homeland Security Act of 2002 and Homeland Security Presidential Directive – 5 required development of the NRP: Single comprehensive national approach All-discipline, all-hazard plan Integrate Prevention, Preparedness, Response and Recovery Integrate crisis & consequence management Coordination structures/mechanisms Federal support to State, local and tribal governments Exercising direct Federal authorities Federal-to-Federal support 2

Mandate Direction for incorporation/concurrent implementation of existing plans Consistent approach to reporting incidents, providing assessments and making recommendations to the President, DHS Secretary and HSC 3

National Response Plan 2004 The NRP supercedes the Federal Response Plan (FRP), United States Government Interagency Domestic Terrorism Concept of Operations Plan (CONPLAN), and the Initial National Response Plan (INRP). Federal departments and agencies are required to modify existing Federal incident management, contingency, and emergency response plans under their purview to appropriately align these plans with the direction provided in the NRP. 4

Development Process Federal Interagency Writing Team Coordination with key stakeholder groups: Emergency Support Function Leaders Group National Response Team State, Local, and Tribal Review Group Homeland Security Advisory Council Guidance from Homeland Security Council and other White House entities Three rounds of formal interagency review More than 8000 individual comments 5

Construction of the NRP Incorporates key INRP concepts Fully Incorporates Federal Response Plan Domestic Terrorism Concept of Ops Plan Federal Radiological Emergency Response Plan NATIONAL RESPONSE PLAN Homeland Security Ops Center (HSOC) Interagency Incident Management Group Principal Federal Official (PFO) Joint Field Office (JFO) Initial NRP Integrates Other national-level contingency plans Foundation: National Incident Management System (NIMS) 6

Organization of the NRP Concept of Operations, Coordinating Structures, Roles and Responsibilities, Definitions, etc. Base Plan Glossary, Acronyms, Authorities, and Compendium of National Interagency Plans Appendices Emergency Support Function Annexes Support Annexes Incident Annexes Groups capabilities & resources into functions that are most likely needed during an incident (e.g., Transportation, Firefighting, Mass Care, etc.) Describes common processes and specific administrative requirements (e.g., Public Affairs, Financial Management, Worker Safety, etc.) Outlines procedures, roles and responsibilities for specific contingencies (e.g., Terrorism, Catastrophic, Radiological) 7

Scope/Applicability Incidents of National Significance (HSPD-5 Criteria): When a Federal department or agency has requested DHS assistance When State/local capabilities are overwhelmed and they request federal assistance When an incident substantially involves more than one Federal department/agency When the Secretary has been directed by the President to assume incident management responsibilities 10

Concept of Operations Incidents handled at lowest possible organizational level DHS receives notification of actual and potential incidents “Top-down” or “Bottom-up” approach Consultation/coordination with other departments/agencies to: Assess national implications Determine need for full or partial NRP activation 11

Concept of Operations Multi-agency coordinating structures activated to provide unified, standardized approach for implementing Federal incident management responsibilities: Direct implementation of Federal authorities Federal support to State, local and tribal governments Federal-to-Federal support Proactive response to catastrophic incidents Coordinating structures provide national capability Ability to address impacts to the rest of the country, execute immediate nation-wide actions to avert or prepare for subsequent events, and manage multiple incidents 12

NRP Coordination Structure Regional Level Field Level NIMS Role Multiagency Coordination System Interagency Incident Management Group JFO Coordination Group Multiagency Coordination Entity Strategic coordination Multiagency Coordination Centers/EOCs Support and coordination Local Emergency Operations Center State Emergency Operations Center Joint Field Office National Level Regional Response Coordination Center Homeland Security Operations Center Incident Command Directing on-scene emergency management An Area Command is established when needed due to the complexity or number of incidents. Area Command Incident Command Post Incident Command Post Incident Command Post Role of regional components varies depending on scope and magnitude of the incident. The NRP includes slight variations of the base structure for terrorism response and Federal-toFederal support 13

Joint Field Office JFO is the focal point for coordination of Federal support to on-scene incident management efforts Principal Federal Official JFO Coordination Group Other Senior State, Local Senior Federal Federal Federal and Tribal Law Enforcement Coordinating Representative(s) Officials Official Officer Chief of Staff JFO Coordination Staff ----------------------Liaison Officer Safety Coordinator Security Officer Infrastructure Liaison Others as needed External Affairs Defense Coordinating Officer (DCO) Office of Inspector General JFO Sections Operations Section Planning Section Logistics Section Finance and Admin Integrates traditional JOC and DFO functions 14

NRP Roll-out Strategy Phase I: Pre-signature coordination and initial News Release Phase II: National Roll-out – 5 cities (Miami, NY, Chicago, Seattle, LA) “First Wave” One-day seminar for responders and stakeholders Schedule under development (dependent on release of the NRP) Other meeting opportunities (DC area and nation-wide) – ask for timeblocks to present NRP Phase III: Ongoing education, training and exercises Initial Awareness level training (CD ROM) ready at the time NRP is released HSC and DHS asking all departments and agencies to participate 15

National Response System (NRS) Involvement in Incidents of National Significance The National Contingency Plan (NCP) will continue to be used to respond to thousands of incidents annually that never rise to the level of an Incident of National Significance For those that do, the NRP and NCP will be implemented concurrently, and the NCP components (i.e., NRT, RRTs, Federal On-Scene Coordinator) remain in place to provide hazard-specific expertise and support 16

National Response System (NRS) Involvement in Incidents of National Significance NCP activities included under: ESF #10 (Oil and Hazardous Materials) – Presidentially declared disasters and Federal-to-Federal support situations Oil & Hazardous Materials Incident Annex – Situations when ESF #10 is not activated Radiological/Nuclear Incident Annex – Radiological incidents NRS in a Leadership role: For contingencies where oil/hazmat is a major aspect of the response, the agency providing the On-Scene Coordinator should also participate as: Senior Federal Official (SFO) at the JFO Core member of the Interagency Incident Management Group (IIMG) Support role: Provided through ESF #10 17

NRS Issues NRS aiding in national-roll out NRP requires the modification of all national interagency plans to align with the NRP within 120 days: NRT beginning review of the NCP to identify necessary changes Preparedness National Response Team (NRT) coordination with ESF Leaders Group (ESFLG) Regional Response Team (RRT) coordination with Regional Interagency Steering Committees (RISCs) 18
