ABSTRACT

National Response Plan (Draft 1) Base Plan   [open pdf - 959KB]

"Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD)-5, Management of Domestic Incidents, requires the creation of a National Response Plan (NRP) to integrate Federal Government prevention, preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation plans into one all-discipline, all-hazard approach to domestic incident management. The NRP, using the National Incident Management System (NIMS), is intended to provide the core organizational structure and operational mechanisms for Federal support to State and local authorities, implementation of direct Federal incident management authorities and responsibilities under the law, and full coordination of resources among Federal departments and agencies. This plan was developed through an inclusive interagency, inter-jurisdictional process incorporating the expertise and recommendations of Federal, State, local, tribal, and private sector stakeholders."
