Disaster response at the state and federal levels utilize an Emergency Support Function (ESF) system. Each ESF is aimed at a particular aspect of disaster response and recovery (ex. ESF 12 is energy/utilities). ESF-24 is geared specifically to business and industry and is a newer, but vital aspect of disaster response.
The South Carolina Department of Commerce and Emergency Support Function (ESF) -24 share a common goal: get businesses back up and running and people back to work as quickly as possible in times of disaster. This mission is vital because when businesses are impacted, the community is impacted as well. The faster that standard operations are restored, the faster the community returns to normal.
