National Response Framework

The National Response Framework provides foundational emergency management doctrine for how the Nation responds to all types of incidents. The NRF is structured to help jurisdictions, citizens, nongovernmental organizations (NGO), and businesses develop whole community plans, integrate continuity plans, and build capabilities to respond to cascading failures among businesses, supply chains, and infrastructure sectors, as well as collaborate with the private sector and NGOs to stabilize community lifelines and enable restoration of services in severe incidents.
