Supporting plans must be prepared and forwarded to this headquarters for review within 60 days after plan approval.

Natural or man-made disasters and special events can be so demanding that local, tribal, state and non-military federal responders are temporarily overwhelmed by the situation. The Department of Defense DOD has a long history of supporting civil authorities in the wake of catastrophic events.

Conditions for Implementation a. In addition to large-scale disaster responses, DOD has long provided smaller scale support for wildland firefighting. This summary provides military decision makers with a brief recapitulation of the major aspects of this plan.

Support under these acts range from small- scale efforts to large-scale operations involving thousands of DOD personnel. Civil support under this plan does not include direct support to law enforcement. Direct support to civilian law enforcement authorities requires 351 statutory or Constitutional authority to not violate the PCA.

Operations To Be Conducted a. Virgin Islands is limited to natural disaster response operations only. Provide appropriate DOD capabilities in a timely manner to assist civil authorities to provide necessary services and recover as quickly as possible. Immediate Response is any form of immediate action taken by a DOD Component or military commander, under the direction of DOD directives and any supplemental guidance, conplam assist civil authorities to save lives, prevent xonplan suffering, or complan great property damage under imminently serious conditions.

When conplaan conditions exist and time does not permit approval from higher headquarters, local military commanders and responsible officials from the DOD Components and Agencies are authorized to take necessary action to respond to requests from civil authorities consistent with existing law and regulations.

CONPLAN 3501-08 Defense Support of Civil Authorities

However, like any military operation, forces performing DSCA remain vulnerable to degradation caused by man-made events or natural conditions. This is a six phase plan: Phase 0 is continuous situational awareness and preparedness.

These activities continue through ail phases. The phase ends with assigned response forces deployed or when the determination is made that there is no event requiring DSCA response. Phase II begins with the deployment of initial response capabilities. Phase II success equals forces deployed with enough capability to support civil authorities in accomplishment of the mission.

DSCA operations are based on requests for ocnplan which will be made at different times, and for missions that will be completed at different times.

Phase III ends when Title 10 forces begin to complete mission assignments and no further conplxn for DOD assistance are anticipated from civil authorities. Phase HI success is achieved when currently deployed DOD capabilities are sufficient to support civil authorities. Phase IV ends when DOD support is no longer required by civil authorities and transition criteria are established. Phase Conplaan success is achieved when all operational aspects of mission assignments are complete.


Phase V begins with the redeployment of remaining DOD forces. The ocnplan ends when response forces have been relieved, redeployed and OPCON is transferred to their respective commands.

Phase V success is achieved when DOD forces have transitioned all operations back to civil authorities. An incident severe enough to trigger a DSCA response will occur with little to no warning and temporarily exceed local, state and tribal civil authorities response capabilities. Title 10 forces in the vicinity of the incident will respond under immediate response authority. Agreements between and among the states, to include EMAC, will be used for state to state assistance for large scale or catastrophic events.

Media coverage will be significant and conplab. Adversaries will monitor the DSCA response and could exploit perceived vulnerabilities. Federal forces can only be placed under the command of Title 10 authorities. In accordance with United States Code, Title 18, Section Posse Comitatus ActTitle 10 military personnel shall not be employed to enforce or execute civil law, except as otherwise provided by law.

Time To Commence Effective Operations. All DSCA is time sensitive because speed of response is directly related to the top three priorities of saving lives, preventing human suffering, and reducing great connplan damage.

The specific circumstances of the DSCA operation and resources available affect the time it takes to deploy into the JOA and commence coplan. Component Commanders will comply with their respective Service instructions, existing plans, agreements, and legal authorities. Efforts must be directed at leveraging the existing infrastructure, contracts, and support relationships with civilian services.

Areas of operation can be established within the operational area as necessaiy. Adversaries could monitor the DSCA response and exploit perceived weaknesses; force protection; and environmental factors ranging from weather to contamination and disease could significantly impact the DSCA force. For example, hurricanes typically occur in the Gulf of Mexico and the mid to lower Atlantic seaboard. Earthquakes most frequently occur along the Pacific Coast and in Alaska.

Wildland firefighting missions often occur in the Western States. Commanders should consider these likely environmental conditions when they plan DSCA operations.

The JFO is the multi-agency coordination center established in or near the incident site for coordinating incident-related prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery actions under the NRF. See Annex C, Appendix The Reserve Components provide an important source of trained manpower and expertise.


They are increasingly relied upon to balance our nation’s commitments and DOD mission requirements. EPLOs are service assets and may be activated and employed by their services. They are trained in disaster preparedness and DSCA operations. Four primary locations are: Their function is to advise state-level civil authorities on military, issues, obtain and coordinate information, proactively assess the situation from a state and State National Guard perspective and provide SITREPS to the established chain of command.

When directed by SecDef, these agencies may provide resources and capabilities: DCMA provides worldwide contract management services in times of peace, crisis, and war, to include administering Civilian Augmentation Program conpan.

DCMA responds within 48 conlpan to provide an initial response team to 33501 JOA to perform contract administration services. The Secretary is responsible for coordinating federal operations within the United States to prepare for, respond to, and recover from terrorist attacks, major disasters, and other emergencies.

The Secretary may delegate this responsibility and appoint a representative to serve as PFO on-site during a disaster, emergency, incident, or 3510.

See Annex V for other federal government departments and agencies. SecDef retains approval authority for RFAs, and all RFAs are evaluated for their impact on readiness, cost, legality, conpkan, risk and appropriateness. DOD is a cooperating agency for five of the eight support annexes.

Assumptions 1 An incident severe enough to trigger a DSCA response will occur with little to no warning and temporarily exceed local, state and tribal civil authorities response capabilities. Operational Limitations 1 Federal forces can only be placed under the command of Title 10 33501. SecDef approval is required for the deployment of additional forces.

This act provides authority for disaster preparedness. Presidential grants for planning, Presidential declarations of major disaster or emergency, formation of immediate support teams, reimbursement to agencies including DODand major disaster assistance programs to help state and local governments mitigate the suffering and damage caused by disasters, emergencies, and other incidents.

Prior to the declaration of a major disaster or emergency under the Stafford Act, most DOD support will be in accordance with the Economy Act, which generally requires full reimbursement of all DOD costs, including personnel pay and allowances. Post-declaration funding, in accordance with the Stafford Act, normally captures only incremental costs. Title 10 forces may, however, provide substantial indirect support to civilian law enforcement agencies.

Such support includes use of facilities, training, advice, maintenance and operation of equipment. Such support is appropriate as long conpln federal troops do not directly participate in traditional law enforcement roles, such as search, seizure and arrest.

Anticipate and execute a timely fonplan effective response in support of the primary agency during special events and to mitigate the effects of a disaster. Its purpose is to integrate the efforts and resources of federal agencies in support of state and local organizations.

Support can be provided to prevent, protect, and respond to potential or actual incidents. At a minimum, the JTF should establish robust communications infrastructure to support close coordination with the JFO.
