FEMA IS-820: Introduction to NRF Support Annexes Course Overview

As part of the NRF, Support Annexes describe how Federal departments and agencies, the private sector, volunteer organizations, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) coordinate and execute the common support processes and administrative tasks required during an incident. The actions described in the Support Annexes are not limited to particular types of events, but are overarching in nature and applicable to nearly every type of incident.
