Abstract : This SOP establishes procedures and protocols for Emergency Support Function #15 External Affairs to support Federal domestic incident management during an incident requiring a coordinated Federal response. Emergency Support Function #15 integrates Public Affairs and the Joint Information Center (JIC), Congressional Affairs, Intergovernmental Affairs (State, Local, Tribal and Territorial), Planning and Products and the Private Sector under the coordinating auspices of external affairs. The JIC ensures the coordinated release of information. The Planning and Products component of external affairs develops all external and internal communications strategies and products for the ESF #15 organization. As of April 2013, the Community Relations function, formerly a component of ESF #15, is now executed by Disaster Survivor Assistance Teams (DSAT) in FEMA's Recovery Directorate. This version reflects the change and includes information on internal coordination with DSAT.
