SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Response Framework (NRF) PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 51833 builds on the current National Response Plan and, using the comprehensive framework of the National Incident Management System (NIMS), serves as a guide to how the nation conducts allhazards incident management. By adopting the term ‘‘framework’’ within the title, the document is now more in keeping with its intended purpose, specifically, simplifying the language, presentation and content; broadening the focus from a purely Federal plan to one that is national in its focus. The Department provides the current draft of the NRF for public comment; it does not necessarily reflect the final policy of the Administration. The NRF explains the common discipline and structures that have been exercised and matured at the local, State and national levels over time. It captures key lessons learned from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, particularly how the Federal government is organized to support communities and States in catastrophic incidents. The NRF is applicable to all Federal departments and agencies that may be requested to provide assistance or conduct operations in the context of actual or potential disasters and includes mechanisms for the coordination and implementation of a wide variety of incident management and emergency assistance activities including Federal support to State, local, and tribal authorities; interaction with private-sector organizations; and the coordinated, direct exercise of Federal authorities, when appropriate. The NRF is written especially for government executives, private-sector leaders and emergency management practitioners. At the same time, it informs emergency management practitioners, explaining the operating structures and tools used routinely by first responders and emergency managers at all levels of government. FEMA seeks comment on the NRF, which is available online in the NRF Resource Center located at http:// www.fema.gov/NRF.
