National Response Framework (NRF) (October 2019), guides the nation’s response to all types of disasters and emergencies. The Federal government organizes response resources and capabilities under the ESF construct. Under the NRF, CESER is responsible for securing this lifeline and working with service providers to stabilize the production, transportation, and delivery infrastructure. CESER’s roles and responsibilities, as outlined by the NRF, are more specifically defined in Emergency Support Function #12.
During any disaster the Department’s emergency responders work with industry and government partners to aid in restoring power to those impacted.
