PPD-8

Presidential Policy Directive / PPD-8 is aimed at strengthening the security and resilience of the United States through systematic preparation for the threats that pose the greatest risk to the security of the nation, including acts of terrorism, cyber attacks, pandemics, and catastrophic natural disasters.

Alignment with NIMS and NRF

The NRF establishes a comprehensive, national, all-hazards approach to domestic incident response and defines the key principles, roles, and structures that organize the way we respond as a nation. It describes how communities, tribes, states, the federal government, private sector, and nongovernmental organizations (NGO) partners apply these principles for a coordinated, effective national response. In addition, the NRF enables first responders, decision makers, and supporting entities to provide a unified national response.

CATASTROPHIC DISASTERS

Catastrophic events result in an immediate surge of requirements exceeding available resources. The majority of guidance documents related to disaster operations are focused on frequently occurring events and provide a core framework that supports all levels of federal, state, and local response and recovery operations. This section of the GeoCONOPS provides detailed guidance on the provision of geospatial support activities for catastrophic natural and man-made events.

Civil Support (Appendix C)

DoD protects the Continental United States (CONUS) through two distinct but interrelated missions: Homeland Defense (HD) and Civil Support (CS) missions. DoD serves as the federal department with lead responsibility for HD, which may be executed by DoD alone or include support provided by other agencies. While these missions are distinct, some department roles and responsibilities overlap, and operations require extensive coordination between lead and supporting agencies.

Dams Sector

The Dams Sector contains a combination of government and private-sector owned assets. During incidents, the sector interacts directly with the owners of the dams to coordinate resources and public protection. Support for geospatial requirements is coordinated through the NICC by the SSA. In addition, the owners/operators utilize their internal geospatial resources, providing relevant products to the SSA and their partners.
