National Response Plan
On February 28, 2003, President Bush signed Homeland Security Presidential Directive – 5, which mandated the developed of a new National Response Plan (NRP), to replace the Federal Response Plan.
The NRP is “an all-discipline, all-hazards plan that establishes a single, comprehensive framework for the management of domestic incidents.”
This provides for the coordination of federal support to state, local and tribal responders.
The NRP supersedes the Federal Response Plan, the U.S. Government Interagency Domestic Terrorism Concept of Operations Plan (ConPlan) and Federal Radiological Emergency Response Plan (FREPP) and modifies other federal agency response plans, as needed.

Based upon HSPD-5, Incidents of National Significance are “high impact events that require a coordinated and effective response … to save lives, minimize damage, and provide the basis for long-term community recovery and mitigation activities.
The National Response Plan is intended for ANY incident in which substantial federal support is anticipated.
Homeland Security Operations Center (HSOC): The HSOC serves as the primary national level multi-agency hub for domestic situational awareness and operational coordination. The HSOC also includes DHS components, such as the National Infrastructure Coordinating Center (NICC), which have primary responsibility for coordinating communications with the Nation’s critical infrastructure during an incident.
