Homeland Security Presidential Directive 5:Management of Domestic Incidents

The heads of Federal departments …

  • Shall participate in the National Response Plan

  • Shall assist and support … the development and maintenance of the NRP


  • The purpose of the NRP is to establish a comprehensive, national, all hazards approach to domestic incident management across a spectrum of activities including prevention, preparedness, response and recovery.

  • The NRP provides a framework for Federal interaction with State, local, and tribal government and the private sector.


  • The NRP applies to all incidents requiring a coordinated Federal Response as part of an appropriate combination of Federal, State, local, tribal private-sector and non-governmental entities.

  • For incidents of lesser severity than an “Incident of National Significance,” NRP annexes and supplemental plans may be implemented by Departments and Agencies within existing authorities

Incident of National Significance

  • An Incident of National Significance is an actual or potential high-impact event that requires robust coordination of Federal response on order to save lives and minimize damage, and provide the basis for long-term community and economic recovery. The Secretary of Homeland Security declares an Incident of National Significance.

Emergency Support Functions

  • NRP contains 15 Emergency Support Functions (ESF). ESF provides the mechanism to coordinate Federal support.

  • A Federal Department of Agency* is assigned as “Coordinator” for each ESF.

    • One or more “Primary Agencies” manage mission assignments for each ESF.

    • Multiple “Support Agencies” provide resources for each ESF.

Interior Participation in ESF

  • DOI has a role in all 15 ESF.

    • Prior to Katrina, DOI was not involved with “Urban Search and Rescue.” The ESF will now encompass all forms of rescue; DOI/NPS is being asked to serve as a Primary Agency.

    • DOI serves as primary for Natural, Cultural and Historic Properties component of ESF-11.

    • DOI provides support for all other ESF.
