2017 Montana Emergency Response Framework

2017 Montana Emergency Response Framework

Following the federal model, the Montana Emergency Response Framework (MERF) works with different state agencies, and assigned some state agencies one or more Emergency Support Functions (ESF) based on their normal day-to-day role. ESFs are mechanisms for grouping the most frequently used functions to coordinate federal and state assistance in an emergency or disaster.  This coordination provides structure for coordinating interagency support in response to an incident.

The MERF allows flexibility for all the state agencies to work together to support each ESF. Some state agencies not assigned a primary ESF role may support other agencies in an ESF role. Currently, the MERF has identified fourteen active state ESFs as listed below.
