Historical context flashback to april 97

Record snowfalls during the winter of 1996-1997 set the stage for massive flooding along the Red River, and upper stretches of the Minnesota River.

By mid-April, the Red River peaked at East Grand Forks more than 26 feet above flood stage.

Total damage in Minnesota alone was in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

Historical Context – Flashback to April ‘97


Red river 97

Red River ‘97

  • The river reached its 28 foot flood stage on April 4th, while Grand Forks was getting pounded on by blizzard Hannah.

  • The river rose steadily, but crest predictions put out by the National Weather Service remained under the level of the 52 foot dikes until noon on Friday, April 18th.

  • At this time the river level was already at 52.19 feet and was rising at a rate of an inch an hour. Floodwaters in the Lincoln Drive area of Grand Forks were at the same level as the river, leaving about 300 homes in water, many of them to their rooftops.


Decisional factors

Decisional Factors

  • Cross District, State, Federal Region Boundaries.

  • Very remote area.

  • Resources are scarce.

Leaning Forward


Leaning forward d9 warning order

Leaning Forward – D9 Warning Order

  • 2. SITUATION:

  • A. THIS ORDER INCLUDES READINESS STATUS BEGINNING IMMEDIATELY AND CONTINUING THROUGH 28 FEB 09. LARGE-SCALE INCIDENTS POSE A SERIOUS THREAT TO PERSONNEL, SHIPS, AIRCRAFT, AND INSTALLATIONS IN ALL COAST GUARD AREAS OF RESPONSIBILITY.

  • B. THE NINTH DISTRICT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR PREPARING AND RESPONDING TO THREATS, IN ANTICIPATION OF SIGNIFICANT PLANNED EVENTS, OR TO LARGE-SCALE INCIDENTS WITHIN THE DISTRICT BOUNDARIES. THE NINTH DISTRICT IS A SUPPORTING DISTRICT FOR INLAND, GULF AND COASTAL AREAS THREATENED BY LARGE-SCALE INCIDENTS. NOW IS THE TIME TO PLAN TO ENHANCE INCIDENT PREPAREDNESS, CAPABILITY AND RESPONSE EFFORTS.


Leaning forward d8 d9 joint alert order

Leaning Forward – D8/D9 Joint Alert Order

  • SUBJ: JOINT ALERT ORDER FOR ANTICIPATED DISTRICT EIGHT AND DISTRICT NINE RED RIVER OF THE NORTH (RED RIVER) FLOODING OPERATIONS

  • 1.B. COMMANDERS INTENT: GIVEN THE STRONG PROBABILITY OF FLOODING ON THE BOUNDARY LINE (RED RIVER) BETWEEN THE EIGHTH AND NINTH DISTRICTS, DISTRICT STAFFS HAVE JOINTLY COORDINATED (REF A) PLANNING EFFORTS TO PREPARE RESOURCES FOR THIS EVENT.2. COURSE OF ACTION: PER REFS B AND C, UNITS SHALL IDENTIFY THE FOLLOWING RESOURCES TO BE DEPLOYED WITHIN 24 HOURS UPON RECEIPT OF THE RED RIVER TASK FORCE EXECUTE ORDER:


Esf 10 planning

ESF-10 Planning

  • FEMA, through the Mission Assignment and Interagency Agreement process, will activate the ESF 10 staff. District Eight will direct the deployment of personnel and equipment in coordination with District Nine.

  • District Eight will receive accounting information for the deployment from the National Pollution Funds Center (NPFC) once a Mission Assignment has been generated.


Esf 10 planning1

ESF-10 Planning

  • The CG ESF-10 representative is the coordination and information conduit for Coast Guard pollution assessment and response actions during the aftermath of a disaster or emergency where the NRF has been activated, the ESF 10 staff shall:

    • Coordinate emergency response activities during the disaster or emergency response with:

      • The District Command Centers;

      • USEPA counterparts to the ESF 10 staff;

      •  Departments and agencies supporting ESF 10 activities;

      • Resource agencies having control of supporting resources within the NRP response infrastructure.


Esf 10 planning2

ESF-10 Planning

  • Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund (OSLTF) and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) Fund. The use of the OSLTF and the CERCLA Fund should be avoided during Stafford Act declarations where the pollution event was caused by the disaster or emergency. However, if the Stafford Act funding process stated in this guidance is not fulfilling the immediate funding needs of the OSC, the pollution funds may be used. Funding for pollution incidents commenced prior to a Stafford Act declaration or from sources not potentially impacted by the disaster shall be completed using the applicable pollution fund.
