    the current multi-agency/multi-discipline approach to national disasters and emergencies. This summary briefly reviews the history of federal planning documents over the past twenty years as context for the present day, National Response Framework; and then highlights the response doctrine and its five principles, as it seems to encapsulate the National Response Framework overall. “Response doctrine influences the way in which policy and plans are developed, forces are organized and trained, and equipment is procured. It promotes unity of purpose, guides professional judgment, and enables responders to best fulfill their responsibilities.” (NFR, January 2008, Page 8 and 9) This summary draws upon multiple documents from one primary source, the Department of Homeland Security web site. Upon examination of these documents it became clear that as our country faced more frequent and destructive disasters, the more collaborative our preparation, response and recovery efforts had to become; and to coordinate that kind of multi-systems response our first responders and decision makers would need a framework from which to provide a powerful unified response. That document is the National Response Framework. Researching and summarizing this document is a crucial foundation to understanding 21st Century emergency management in the United States.…

    The second phase in producing an effective emergency plan includes the preparedness of law enforcement agencies. Preparedness includes developing, researching, and testing of risk assessments, emergency personnel, notification systems, resources and supplies, and information dissemination. Preparedness will also help coordinate and develop plans to save lives. The third phase in emergency planning is response; this phase provides the assistance during an emergency to prevent further injuries, property damage, and help to accelerate recovery. The response phase also includes the implementation of emergency operational plans, the issuance of public warnings, field operations, and development of incident action plans, and the command, and control of the incident (EMHSD/MSP, 2009).…

    Responding to a disaster can be a hectic time. A vital mitigation action of this chaos can be achieved by knowing who is leading what segment of the response and what each segment’s roles and responsibilities are. Therefore, it is wise that the emergency management team delegate Emergency Support Functions (ESFs) into the Emergency Operation Plan (EOP) for their jurisdiction. While it is not a recognized requirement to list and identify ESFs, but including them into the EOP allows all personnel involved in the Emergency Management (EM) team to understand what is expected of the functions, identifies resource management and therefore eases communication. The support functions are akin to a house of cards, removing any one of the support functions and the capabilities of the remaining functions be hindered, or will result in a failed EOP response. This paper will be addressing the role of ESF 7 Resource Support, commonly referred to as logistics.…

    As explained by Graeme (2008), there are four main cycles in disaster preparedness, including prevention, protection, response and recovery. This is a major cycle that the Homeland Security Bill has worked in implementing antiterrorism routines. To achieve these objectives, HSA has prioritized three main areas. These include preventing any new attacks, reduce the vulnerability of the country to attacks, and minimize the damage in case of any attacks (Sharon, 2012). To achieve and adequately support the cycle from prevention to recovery, HSA improved its system to allow for easier coordination.
