This policy establishes “National Essential Functions,” prescribes continuity requirements for all executive departments and agencies, and provides guidance for State, local, territorial, and tribal governments, and private sector organizations in order to ensure a comprehensive and integrated national continuity program that will enhance the credibility of our national security posture and enable a more rapid and effective response to and recovery from a national emergency.

Federal agencies, whenever possible (such as for hurricane and tsunami exercises), should include the SFFEB in coordination when exercising their COOP emergency plans, thus allowing a link of this plan into the exercise play. This will help allow the smooth activation of the plan when a disaster threatens the San Francisco Bay Area.
Federal emergency managers can also join our Emergency Preparedness Working Group, share best practices and coordinate on continuity training and exercises by clicking here.
