"This guide contains advice for employees, managers and Human Resource (HR) practitioners on how to prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters and emergencies. It is designed to assist management officials in exercising their authorities, fulfilling their responsibilities, and carrying out their management functions during disasters and emergencies. It addresses a number of human resource management areas to which special provisions apply during such situations. Used in conjunction with information and instructions from local emergency management offices as well as installation or command guidance, this guide will assist DoD employees with preparing for disaster response. […] The Department of Defense (DoD) involvement in contingency and disaster preparedness and response has increased and changed significantly in recent years. The Department's role in support of humanitarian missions, disaster relief and the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT) has required a much greater commitment of both military personnel and civilian employees an increased awareness of the potential for a pandemic has further increased challenges in assessing scenarios previously unforeseen."
