Attorney General

Homeland Security Presidential Directive-5, Management of Domestic Incidents, February 2003. Issued by the President, Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD)-5 provides that the DHS has the lead role in managing the response to incidents in the United States, including terrorist attacks, major disasters, and other emergencies. The Directive specifies, however, that the Attorney General, in coordination with the DHS and working through the FBI, will coordinate law enforcement’s activities for preventing and disrupting terrorist attacks. The Directive required that, by the beginning of fiscal year (FY) 2005, federal departments and agencies formally implement a standardized methodology for responding to all domestic incidents, from natural disasters to acts of terrorism.16 It also mandates that federal agencies revise their emergency operations plans
