Emergency Support Function (ESF) SOGs

Ensuring each lead agency for your Emergency Support Functions is fully apprised of what the roles and responsibilities are for each agency involved with that ESF is important to the response and recovery to an event in your jurisdiction. DSI has developed an "at a glance" standard operating guideline for each of the 18 ESFs.

DSI tailors each ESF SOG to the specific ESF Annexes attached to all Emergency Operations Plans. These SOGs are ideal for specific training on each individual ESF in your jurisdiction.

It is highly recommended that your jurisdiction develop standard operating procedures for each of the ESFs. DSI has subject matter experts ready to undertake this effort for you.
