The National Response Framework is now open for review and comment. The Framework as it is now known was formerly called the National Response Plan. Reviewing this document is really important; all chiefs and command level officers must read this document. The NRF covers the National Incident Management System (NIMS), ESF emergency support functions like our USAR teams, Support and Incident Annexes and the National Preparedness Guidelines. USFA director Greg Cade has asked us all to take a look at the Framework.

Greg is right on the money. We need to review this. Like it or not, it directly affects how we are going to train and respond. This is our chance to participate. Let's take it and be part of the process. Read it over--or just what concerns you, if that is all you can do--and let them and us know what you think.

If clicking "Teview of the National Response ....." is suppose to bring to the "National Response Framwork" page it is not working. All it does is bring you back to this page.

A comment from Michael H. Reynolds...

"During my rapid and cursory scan of the NRF, I did not notice the mention of LEPCs or their role. These organizations could be the portals through which the NRF is taught, implemented, and managed. They could become the pivotal organizations upon which training, exercising, and planning is charged at the local level. This implies that the LEPCs be funded through a specific grant program designed for LEPC implementation of the NRF . . . dream on. This lack of funding is a primary reason that LEPCs are frequently wishy-washy, non productive, or inactive. In spite of this some LEPCs are very proactive and productive. Involving LEPCs in the NRF and in a funding scheme through the ODP could bring them to the forefront of the NRF."
