Homeland Security Presidential Directive 5: Directive on Management of Domestic Incidents
United States. Office of the Federal Register
Issued on February 28, 2003 by President Bush, Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD) 5 serves the purpose to enhance the ability of the United States to manage domestic incidents by establishing a single, comprehensive national incident management system. This management system would cover the prevention, preparation, response, and recovery of terrorist attacks, major disasters, and other emergencies. The implementation of such a system would allow all levels of government throughout the nation to work efficiently and effectively together. The directive gives further detail on which government officials oversee and have authority for various parts of the national incident management system.
