While putting this book together and getting it ready for publishing, the news flow of horrific events was constant. From multiple public shootings, bombings, and massive weather systems, it has been very difficult for our communities and our infrastructure to bounce back from these events! The Aurora Colorado shooting, Hurricane Sandy, the Newtown, Connecticut school tragedy, the Boston Marathon Bombing, and the deadly May 2013 Oklahoma Tornado outbreaks, to name a few, will continue to tax the response and planning communities.
Creation of both the NRP and the NRF was driven by HSPD-5. These Federal plans are supported by emergency support functions (ESFs) annexes that describe the missions, policies, structures, and responsibilities of Federal agencies for coordinating resource and programmatic support. The ESFs provide the structure for coordinating Federal interagency support for a Federal response to an incident. They are mechanisms for grouping functions most frequently used to provide Federal support. The plans are guidelines, not requirements for the States in the beginning, but States are supposed to follow Federal plans to get funding.
