National Response Plan


Hspd 5


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.

Hspd 51


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.

National response plan


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.

National response plan


  • Integrates incident-related prevention, preparedness, response and recovery activities

  • Coordinates Federal, State, local, private-sector and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs)

  • Maximizes efficient utilization of resources

National response plan


  • Improves Incident Management Communications and Situational Awareness

  • Facilitates mutual aid and federal emergency support

  • Facilitates Federal-to-Federal interaction

  • Provides for catastrophic response

  • Links with other response plans

Incidents of national significance

Incidents of National Significance

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.


However …

The National Response Plan is intended for ANY incident in which substantial federal support is anticipated.

Local response

Local Response

  • The Plan identifies police, fire, public health and medical, emergency management, and other personnel as responsible for incident management at the local level.

  • The Plan enables incident response to be handled at the lowest possible organizational and jurisdictional level.

  • The Plan ensures the seamless integration of the federal government when an incident exceeds local or state capabilities.

Transition to federal support

Transition to Federal Support

  • Timely Federal Response to Catastrophic Incidents (CIs).

  • Identifies CIs as high-impact, low-probability incidents, including natural disasters and terrorist attacks that result in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the population, infrastructure, environment, economy, national morale, and/or government functions.

  • Provides the means to swiftly deliver federal support in response to CIs.

New features in nrp

New Features in NRP

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.

New features in nrp1

New Features in NRP

  • National Response Coordination Center (NRCC): The NRCC, a functional component of the HSOC, is a multi-agency center that provides overall federal response coordination.

  • Regional Response Coordination Center (RRCC): At the regional level, the RRCC coordinates regional response efforts and implements local federal program support until a Joint Field Office is established.

New features in nrp2

New Features in NRP

  • Interagency Incident Management Group (IIMG): A tailored group of senior federal interagency experts who provide strategic advice to the Secretary of Homeland Security during an actual or potential Incident of National Significance.

  • Joint Field Office (JFO): A temporary federal facility established locally to provide a central point to coordinate resources in support of state, local, and tribal authorities.

New features in nrp3

New Features in NRP

  • Principal Federal Official (PFO): A PFO may be designated by the Secretary of Homeland Security during a potential or actual Incident of National Significance. While individual federal officials retain their authorities pertaining to specific aspects of incident management, the PFO works in conjunction with these officials to coordinate overall federal incident management efforts.
