Critical transportation; situation assessment; and mass care services are core capabilities for response.

Elements of the National Response Framework can be implemented as needed on a flexible, scalable basis to improve response.
The National Response Framework only applies to catastrophic incidents.
The National Response Framework replaces NIMS, which is now obsolete.
Describe(s) success in national preparedness as “a secure and resilient Nation with the capabilities required across the whole community to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from the threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk.”
National Preparedness Goal
Describe(s) coordinating structures necessary to deliver the core capabilities from a given mission area, and supports the delivery of core capabilities from the other mission areas.
National Planning Frameworks
Provide(s) an integrated set of guidance, concepts, processes, and tools that enables the whole community to meet the National Preparedness Goal.
National Preparedness System
The National Response Framework (NRF) presents the guiding principles that enable all response partners to prepare for and provide a unified national response.
The Response FIOP dictates how local governments will interface with the private and nonprofit sectors during response to a catastrophic incident.
The core capabilities are individual competencies that each emergency management professional should possess in order to receive credentials.
Preparedness depends on efforts at all levels, including individuals and communities, the private and nonprofit sectors, faith-based organizations, and all levels of government.
In responding to an explosion near a power plant, each response organization establishes its own separate command structure and plans based on their authorities.
Not Consistent with Framework
An Advanced Local Emergency Response Team is being trained to deploy rapidly, provide operational assistance, and treat patients during mass casualty incidents.
Consistent with Framework
In anticipation of an incident, FEMA sends a liaison to the State Emergency Operations Center to provide support and ensure that any request for assistance will be expedited.
Consistent with Framework
A private sector association has established a forward-leaning task force to collect donated items and deploy without needing to wait for a formal request.
Not Consistent with Framework
When local resources are exceeded, the role of the state government is to direct on-scene incident command.
Local governments cope with the effects of an incident and are often the last to leave an incident site.
For Federal disaster assistance, tribal governments can elect to deal directly with the Federal Government.
Coordination with voluntary agencies is generally limited to the local level.
The private sector is responsible for most of the critical infrastructure and key resources in the Nation and hence may require assistance in the wake of a disaster or emergency.
Serves as the chief law enforcement officer of the United States, enforces Federal civil rights laws, and provides expertise to ensure that these laws are appropriately addressed.
Attorney General
As the principal Federal official for domestic incident management, coordinates the Federal resources utilized in the prevention of, preparation for, response to, or recovery from terrorist attacks, major disasters, or other emergencies.
Secretary of Homeland Security
Manages the operation of the National Response Coordination Center and provides for the effective support of all Emergency Support Functions.
FEMA administrator
Leads the Federal Government response and ensures that the necessary coordinating structures, leadership, and resources are applied quickly and efficiently to large-scale and catastrophic incidents.
Indicate which of the following are core capabilities for the Response mission area.
Critical Transportation
Environmental Response/Health and Safety
Fire Management and Suppression
Fatality Management Services
Infrastructure Systems
Logistics and Supply Chain Management
Mass Care Services
Mass Search and Rescue Operations
On-scene Security, Protection, and Law Enforcement
Operational Communications
Operational Coordination
Public Health, Healthcare, and Emergency Medical Services
Public Information and Warning
Situational Assessment
Sequence the steps (1-6) for requesting Stafford Act assistance.
1. Tribal and/or local emergency personnel respond and assess the situation.
2. Governor or tribal Chief Executive activates the State’s/tribe’s emergency plan and ensures that all appropriate State/tribal and local actions have been taken or initiated.
3. State and Federal officials conduct the Preliminary Damage Assessment in coordination with tribal/local officials.
4. Request for assistance is submitted through the FEMA Regional Administrator.
5. The FEMA Administrator, acting through the Secretary of Homeland Security, recommends a course of action to the President.
6. The President issues a major disaster declaration and appoints a Federal Coordinating Officer to execute Stafford Act authorities.
In extraordinary circumstances, the President may unilaterally make an emergency declaration to expedite the delivery of lifesaving assistance.
A Presidential emergency or major disaster declaration is required prior to the delivery of any Federal assistance.
A Federal entity may request Federal assistance under the National Response Framework.
Whenever National Response Framework mechanisms are activated, the Secretary of Homeland Security assumes an overall leadership role. Select your response from the following radio buttons

Industry trade groups may serve as private sector organizing structures.
Every state has a single coordinating structure which is modeled after the FEMA structures.
Are used for building, sustaining, and delivering the response core capabilities.
Characteristic of Emergency Support Functions
Are based on the capabilities of a single department or agency.
Not Characteristic of Emergency Support Functions
Are organized into functional areas.

The Unified Coordination Group applies Unified Command principles in coordinating assistance being provided to support the local, tribal, and state response.
A JFO is established each time a Federal agency provides assistance to a local community.
The coordinating structures used to organize response efforts must be scalable, flexible, and adaptable so they can be partially or fully implemented.

Coordinates Federal regional response efforts until the Joint Field Office can be established.
Regional Response Coordination Center (RRCC):
Provides overall national emergency management coordination and maintains a situational awareness.
