The Emergency Support Function (ESF) annexes to the Emergency Operations Plan organize the applicable college District positions, departments, and outside support agencies into groups according to their roles in strategic response to a campus emergency or disaster. Outside agencies may include: governmental, non-governmental, private sector, and other volunteer resources. The ESF annex provides basic information on available internal and external departments and agencies that might be needed for an incident that affects Dallas County Community College District. Each ESF has at least one lead position or department within the District that will lead the specific response, one or more supporting departments within the District that will provide response support, and one or more external supporting departments from the surrounding communities, and neighboring jurisdictions.
ESFs will normally be activated at the direction of the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Director in response to activation level 3 or greater emergencies as outlined in the EOP. Designated department and agency resources may be requested to respond or recover from emergency incidents that affect the District. Normally, the response and recovery actions will be coordinated from the EOC as Incident or Unified Command will use the resources at the incident scene.
The primary position/department/office(s) will normally be responsible for coordinating specific requirements associated with the emergency support function. Support position/department/office(s) may be contacted to provide expertise and assistance, as needed. Finally, external departments/agencies may be needed if internal resources are overwhelmed or where District capabilities do not exist (such as emergency medical or fire services.) In all cases, prior memorandums of understanding, mutual aid agreements, or funding issues would need to be addressed prior to requesting assistance.
The purpose of ESF 5 is to identify the internal and external departments responsible for coordinating the emergency management actions that may take place in an emergency.
Emergency Support Function 5:
Dallas County Community College District is exposed to many hazards, all of which have the potential for disrupting the community, causing casualties, and damaging or destroying public or private property. Potential emergencies and disasters
include both natural and human-caused incidents.
See the EOP Hazard Summary for the potential emergencies that may impact DCCCD.
The district makes the following planning assumptions:
A common operating procedure within the district and across local jurisdictions provides the framework for emergency management coordination and direction. Interoperable systems make this framework possible. Resources are in existence throughout the college district and the cities in which district properties lie to provide coordinated capabilities for the most effective and efficient warning, response, and recovery activities. When these capabilities are properly coordinated, response activities become more effective and efficient.
The emergency support function will primarily take action in the following phases:
