Alternate Title: OPNAV Instruction 3440.16C: Navy Civil Emergency Program
The purpose of this instruction is to "provide Navy policy, planning guidance, operational structure, and assignment of responsibilities in the implementation of references (a) through (e) for the assistance to civil authorities in the event of an emergency. […]. The down-sizing and reorganization of the Department of Defense (DOD) has had a significant impact on the Navy emergency preparedness organization. U.S. Atlantic Command (USACOM) is now a DOD Principal Planning Agent and has responsibility for all of the continental U.S. (CONUS), and Forces Command (FORSCOM) is now a component command of USACOM. Regional Planning Agent (RPA) sites have been changed, as well as some RPAs' geographic areas of responsibility (AOR). The new 'all hazards' approach to civil emergency preparedness, including Civil Defense, has obviated the need for separate Civil Defense emergency procedures."
