§ 202.0 Objectives.
(a) During, or in anticipation of, a non-wartime emergency or natural
disaster, a telecommunications capacity must exist to provide temporary
telecommunications service to State and local government officials and
other persons deemed appropriate by the President.

national telecommunications capability must exist that will support
telecommunications requirements with respect to national security,
survival and recovery. The development of survivable telecommunications
to support essential functions (including an emergency broadcasting
system), and technical compatibility of signaling methods, transmission
modes, switching facilities, and terminal devices to permit exchange of
communications over the surviving media of all systems, government or
commercial, are crucial elements of such a national capability. In

is necessary to manage initiation, coordination and restoration of
telecommunications services. The management structure must include the
(1) Legal authority for telecommunications management.
(2) A control mechanism to manage the initiation, coordination and
restoration of telecommunications services.

residual resources and controlled restoration of services based on

authorities or responsibilities of the Director of the Office of
Management and Budget, or any Office or official thereof; or reassign
any function assigned any agency under the Federal Property and
