Published on 2/5/2013

The U.S. Military has different branches, namely the US Army, US Navy, US Air Force, US Marine Corps, and the US Coast Guard. In times of emergency situations, these military groups are among the first people to respond and provide assistance to civilians who have been victims of disasters. The U.S. Air Force, in particular, has a special branch that functions to support civil authorities, law enforcement agencies, and civil defense. Known as the Air Force National Security Emergency Preparedness Office, this arm of the U.S. Air Force is responsible for all Air Force-related national security emergency preparedness functions. It supervises all the activities of the Air Force Military Support to Civilian Authorities (MSCA) as well as the Continuity of Operations for the Air Staff (COOP). The Air Force National Security Emergency Preparedness Office is the principal point of contact for homeland security and serves as the liaison for the other federal agencies in these areas. AFNSEP was established in response to the Executive Order 12656 of President Ronald Reagan in 1988, which resulted in the expansion of the Air Force’s role beyond military defense to other avenues of national emergencies and to respond to civilian needs in times of national disasters. Since their development, AFNSEP has supported hundreds of major disasters, such as the 1989 Exxon Valdez Oil Spill, the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster, several hurricanes (Andrew and Katrina), several California wildfires, and typhoon relief all across America and the Pacific region. The Air Force National Security Emergency Preparedness Office has several major programs, including Continuity of Operations - HQ USAF, Joint Emergency Evacuation Program (JEEP), Joint Air Transportation System (JATS), Alternate Headquarters/Emergency Headquarters Relocation Site Management, Residual Capabilities Assessment (RECA) Program, CONUS Airborne Reconnaissance for Damage Assessment (CARDA) Program, and Survivable Reconstitution and Recovery Plan - 55 (SRR-55). The overall purpose of these programs is to provide adequate capabilities to all levels of the Air Force in order to meet the necessary defense and civilian needs during any national disaster or security emergency. It serves as the Air Force’s Office of Primary Responsibility (OPR) for all National Security Emergency Preparedness (NSEP) concerns and Military Support to Civil Authorities (MSCA) issues. The Division oversees and directs all Air Force NSEP operations and serves as the Principal and Regional Planning Agent (PPA) for MSCA in the all-hazards arena which covers a wide range of emergencies from peacetime disaster. It approves and coordinates Air Force auxiliary activities of the Civil Air Patrol (MSCA only) and manages Individual Mobilization Augmentee (IMA) and Emergency Preparedness Liaison Officers (EPLOs). The Air Force National Security Emergency Preparedness Office plays a very vital role during and after disaster situations. Their main assets include professional training, specialized equipment, resources, discipline, and quick response time. Aside from the things mentioned above, they are also called upon to perform the following tasks: evacuation of victims, maintenance of essential services, transport of relief goods and supplies, distribution of goods, supplies, and other donations, medical assistance, and management of relief camps. The transport wing of the Air Force is an essential part of the government’s disaster management program. The helicopters and other air crafts of the Air Force are used for surveillance, distribution of goods, and rescuing stranded civilians, especially during floods. Coordination between civilians and military actors is extremely important during emergency response. Thankfully, the Air Force National Security Emergency Preparedness Office is there to help people in times of urgent matters. They have the special duty not just to defend the nation when there is a threat in security, but also to provide help and assistance during natural calamities and crisis situations.
