FEMA releases the National Response Framework, Fourth Edition, and ESF #14 Cross-Sector Business and Infrastructure Annex

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has released the fourth edition of the National Response Framework and the Emergency Support Function (ESF) #14 – Cross-Sector Business and Infrastructure Annex. These documents incorporate lessons learned from the 2017 hurricane and wildfire seasons. The updated framework remains scalable, flexible and adaptable, using the core capabilities identified in the National Preparedness Goal, and continues to focus on the capabilities necessary to save lives, protect property and the environment, and meet basic human needs during disasters. The new ESF #14 supports the coordination of cross-sector operations, including stabilization of key supply chains and Community Lifelines, among infrastructure owners and operators, businesses, and their government partners.
