- Immediate actions to save lives, protect property and the environment, and meet basic human needs
- Most incidents begin and end locally and are managed at the local or tribal level
- Effective partnership relies on engaging all elements of the whole community
- How, at all levels, the nation effectively manages all-hazards response
The Correct Answer:
A. The term “response” as used in the national response framework includes immediate actions to save lives, protect property and the environment, and meet basic human needs.
The national response framework can be defined as a guide responsible for responding to all types of emergencies and disasters occurring in a nation. This framework has been built on adaptable, flexible, and scalable concepts identified by the NIMS or national incident management system.
The “response” term is used because of the following factors:
- Executing the emergency plans and taking actions to enable recovery.
- The actions that are usually taken to save the lives of people, protecting the environment, meet the basic requirements of humans, stabilize the incident and protect the property during an incident.
This framework is responsible for effectively managing all hazardous conditions and explains how the response should be towards such conditions. This also describes the best practices and the specific authorities that are responsible for managing such situations (situation may be a minor incident or the most significant catastrophe)
