continuity of government

In the United States of America, continuity of government allows execution of the Federal Response Plan; disruptions could cause responses to other threats to lack proper direction, prioritization, and efficiency. The Federal Response Plan indicates that "Under the Stafford Act and Executive Orders 12148, Federal Emergency Management, and 12656, Assignment of Emergency Preparedness Responsibilities, DHS has been delegated primary responsibility for coordinating Federal emergency preparedness, planning, management, and disaster assistance functions."
