Disaster Assistance is managed jointly by a Federal Coordinating Officer (FCO) and a State Coordinating Officer (SCO).  The FCO, the lead Federal Officer at the DFO, heads the Emergency Response Team (ERT) and leads and coordinates the timely delivery of all Federal disaster assistance to support and local governments and to assist the affected individuals.  The major DFO sections are: Operations (includes Operations Support, Human Services, Infrastructure Support and Emergency Services), Information & Planning (ESF-5), Logistics (includes Supply, Resource Managment, Information Services, Coordination & Planning, and Support Services). and Administration (includes Personnel and Employee Services).
