Emergency Support Function #14 -- Cross-Sector Business and Infrastructure   [open pdf - 268KB]

Alternate Title: ESF #14 - Cross-Sector Business and Infrastructure Annex

From the Introduction: "Businesses and infrastructure owners and operators have primary responsibility for managing their systems in emergencies, and unequalled expertise to do so. ESF [Emergency Support Function] #14 supports growing efforts to enable collaboration among critical infrastructure sectors and helps coordinate and sequence such operations to mitigate cascading failures and risks. ESF #14 also integrates SSA [Sector-Specific Agencies] incident response operations with ESFs and other relevant public-private sector coordinating entities. SSAs have critical roles, responsibilities, and authorities in partnering with infrastructure owners and operators in their respective sectors. ESF #14 works with SSAs, other ESFs, and their partners to support cross-sector planning and operations that facilitates integrated public and private incident response. To this end, the Federal Government enables--where possible--those businesses and infrastructure owners and operators that have the responsibilities, capabilities, and resources to stabilize their systems in support of community lifelines."
