16 Unit 1: Introductions and Course Overview National Continuity Policy adequate warning of potential emergencies that could pose a significant risk to the homeland might not be available, and therefore all continuity planning shall be based on the assumption that no such warning will be received.

17 Unit 1: Introductions and Course Overview National Continuity Policy (9) Recognizing that each branch of the Federal Government is responsible for its own continuity programs, an official designated by the Chief of Staff to the President shall ensure that the Executive branch's COOP and COG policies in support of ECG efforts are appropriately coordinated with those of the Legislative and Judicial branches in order to ensure interoperability and allocate national assets efficiently to maintain a functioning Federal Government.

18 Unit 1: Introductions and Course Overview National Continuity Policy (10) Federal Government COOP, COG, and ECG plans and operations shall be appropriately integrated with the emergency plans and capabilities of State, local, territorial, and tribal governments, and private sector owners and operators of critical infrastructure, as appropriate, in order to promote interoperability and to prevent redundancies and conflicting lines of authority. The Secretary of Homeland Security shall coordinate the integration of Federal continuity plans and operations with State, local, territorial, and tribal governments, and private sector owners and operators of critical infrastructure, as appropriate, in order to provide for the delivery of essential services during an emergency.
