      District Concept Development
   The original concept grew out of recommendations first
    detailed in the 2005 Interim National Preparedness Goal
    and later in the 2007 National Preparedness Guidelines.

   The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has
    identified the expansion of regional response capabilities
    as a national priority.

   The creation of District (Regional ) planning and
    response organizations is a key component of the
    Indiana Strategy for Homeland Security.
      Homeland Security Districts

• The Indiana Department of Homeland
Security and the Indiana State
Department of Health have established
ten Homeland Security Districts within
the State of Indiana.

• Each District is comprised of multiple
counties and the numerous local
communities within them.

• Each District is unique in character,
needs and capabilities.

   District Response Task Force

      The District Response Task Force (DRTF) is a
multi-disciplinary, all-hazards emergency response group
  capable of rapidly deploying to a variety of incidents.
   The DRTF Program grew out of the Regional Weapons of
    Mass Destruction Task Force concept first developed in 2003.

   Indiana District Response Task Force Development Plan was
    completed in late 2007 and released in February 2008.

   The 2009 District Response Task Force Initiative Plan is in
    draft form and is currently under review.

   A District Response Task Force will consist of specialized
    team elements representing multiple emergency response
     District Response Task Force

   The DRTF would be a District asset.
   Staffed and managed by local emergency responders.
   Operated through the coordinated effort of many
    jurisdictions within a District.
   State grant funds will be available to support Task Force
    training and for the purchase of Task Force equipment.
   Deployable to local, regional and statewide incidents.
   Could also deploy nationally as part of IN State Task Force .
     District Response Task Force
              Core Elements Include:

   Incident Management
   Fire Suppression
   Law Enforcement
   Emergency Medical
   Service Support
           District Response Task Force
             Supplementary Elements
   These are optional, specialized resources which may already exist in
    a District or may be developed at some point to fulfill a specific local
    response requirement. These teams may include, but are not limited
     – Technical Rescue Team
     – Hazardous Materials Response
     – Cave / Tunnel / Mine Search and Rescue
     – Disaster Mental Health Team
     – Bomb Response Team
     – Damage Assessment Team
     – Donation and Volunteer Management Team
     – Agriculture Emergency Response Team
     – Animal Rescue / Veterinary Assistance Team
         District Response Task Force
             Organizational Levels
   District Response Task Force – Basic (DRTF-B) - A DRTF-B is a task force which
    is comprised of an All-Hazard Incident Management Team (Type III) as defined
    by the State Incident Management Program, a Support Services Element, and at
    least one other core element. A DRTF-B is self sufficient for 24 hours.

   District Response Task Force – Intermediate (DRTF-I) - A DRTF-I requires the
    five core response elements and one supplementary element be represented on
    the team. Fully staffed, a DRTF-I would consist of a minimum of 95 - 111
    members (Variable depends on the type of supplemental element selected). A
    DRTF-I is self-sufficient for 48 hours.

   District Response Task Force – Advanced (DRTF-A) – A DRTF-A is comprised of
    all five core elements and at least two supplementary elements. A DRTF-A is self-
    sufficient for 72 hours.
         District Response Task Force
            Deployment Scenarios
   Full Task Force Deployment – Mobilization of all Strike Teams in a District, under
    a unified command, at the request of the State. Incident examples:
     – New Madrid / Wabash Valley Earthquake
     – WMD Incident

   Strike Team Deployment – Mobilization of individual strike team elements at the
    request of the State, District or local jurisdiction. Incident Examples:
     – 2007 Nappanee Tornado
     – 2008 June Flooding

   EMAC Deployment - Mobilization of a full District Response Task Force or
    individual strike team elements as part of the Indiana State Task Force. Incident
      – 2005 Hurricane Katrina - Operation “Hoosier Relief” mission to Biloxi, MS
      – 2009 Kentucky Ice Storm deployment to Frankfurt, KY
Liability, Costs and Reimbursement
 Activation of District Response Task Forces or Strike Team
  elements by the State of Indiana would be done in accordance
  with the Mobile Support Unit provision in State Law ( IC 10-
 If the State of Indiana requests the deployment of a Task
  Force or a Strike Team element, associated costs will be paid
  out of the State Contingency Fund.
 If there is a requirement for hospitalization and/or death
  benefits these will be covered under the Mobile Support Unit
 If a local jurisdiction requests the deployment of a District
  Response Task Force or Strike Team elements, the requesting
  jurisdiction is responsible for paying costs associated with that
