CEMP Supporting Annexes

Emergency Support Functions

Emergency Support Functions (ESFs) provide the structure for coordinating response activities for disasters or emergencies that go beyond the capability of the local resources. The ESFs are a mechanism used to group functions most often needed to respond to incidents. The ESF Annexes outline an active approach to provide various services throughout New York State during the response and short-term recovery phases of a disaster as outlined in the State Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP).

    Emergency Repatriation Annex

    The objective of the Emergency Repatriation Annex is to minimize the impact on repatriates during their emergency relocation to United States when using New York State as an entry point. The Annex outlines provisions to enable repatriates to quickly and efficiently receive comprehensive services through the coordination of several state and federal programs. The Federal government is responsible for the initiation of repatriation services and for all activities prior to and immediately after the arrival of the plane at the port of entry (POE). New York State is responsible for coordinating the delivery of services as part of the State’s response. This could include providing temporary assistance such as monetary support, medical care, temporary public sheltering, transportation, and other goods and services necessary for the health or welfare of individuals (including guidance, counseling, and other welfare services) to eligible repatriates within New York State for up to 90 days to assist them with resettlement into the area.

    NYS Fatality Management Annex

    Several events have occurred in New York State that serves as a constant reminder of the challenges and sensitivities associated with fatality management.

The planning team included representatives from numerous DPC agencies, as well as local government, health and hospital organizations, volunteer organizations, and the private sector. The annex is an all hazards, capabilities-based plan that leverages the wealth of resources and support from multiple DPC agencies and identifies the linkages into the Federal response system. The Annex will serve as the state's operating plan for all incidents in New York State that require State-level fatality management support.

    Mass Care Annex

    The State of New York experiences a wide variety of disasters and emergencies that may result in loss of life, damage, destruction of property, and negatively affect community members. Potential community disaster can be a result of natural or human-causes emergencies which pose challenges in sheltering, feeding, family reunification, and distributing emergency supplies to people who have been impacted by an emergency or disaster. Disasters have the potential to exhaust resources at the local level and warrant support from the State, or possibly the Federal government, to effectively respond to the event. At the State level, coordinating mass care operations include sheltering, feeding, distribution of emergency supplies, and family reunification. This Mass Care Annex is intended to provide information, guidance, and a process for coordinating available State, Federal, and NGO resources to support local mass care operations through the response and recovery phases.
