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.
