National Response Framework document released

FYI - the new National Response Framework document has just been released and is now available. The NRF supersedes the National Response Plan and is intended to serve as a guide for how the nation will conduct incident response. The new name is intended to better align the document and this intent.

DOD is a "full partner in the Federal response to domestic incidents, and its response is fully coordinated through the mechanisms of this Framework." [p.11]

It is available directly at http://www.fema.gov/pdf/emergency/nrf/nrf-core.pdf

Other related information is available at their main website the National Response Framework Resource Center -- http://www.fema.gov/emergency/nrf/mainindex.htm

The press release with more background is available at http://www.fema.gov/pdf/emergency/nrf/whatsnew.pdf
