Sec. 201.0  Background.

    National policy with respect to the conservation, allocation and use 
of the Nation's telecommunications resources during crises and 
emergencies is set forth in Executive Order 12472. The following parts 
of this chapter address specific responsibilities with respect to 
management of telecommunications resources and related procedures which 
bear upon provision, restoration and continuity of telecommunications 
services during crises and emergencies. In doing so, the chapter 
encompasses both national security and emergency preparedness 
activities, consistent with Executive Order 12472. This concept of 
national security and emergency preparedness telecommunications services 
(as defined in Sec. 201.2(g)) includes crises that do not necessarily 
entail serious degradation of, or serious threats to, national security. 
It therefore is a broader concept than the term ``national security 
emergency preparedness activities'' in Executive Order 12656, which 
concerns only national security emergencies, and preparedness activities 
necessarily related to such emergencies.
