Abstract : This monograph examines the applicability of Joint contingency operations doctrine and emerging Army operations doctrine to planning and executing domestic disaster relief operations. Key linkages between considerations for Joint contingency operations and Army principles for operations other than war are used as the paradigm for examining a contemporary case study of military support to domestic disaster relief operations. The case study is the 1992 Joint Task Force Andrew support to Federal response and relief efforts in southern Florida in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew. This monograph begins by discussing the legal and regulatory framework which creates the unique context for Federal military involvement in these types of operations. The Federal Emergency Management Agency's Federal Response Plan delineates the Federal and other agency primary and supporting responsibility for the twelve Emergency Support Functions (ESFs) associated with response and relief efforts following a Presidentially declared disaster.
