The Capstone document establishes a Universal Logistics Standard for conducting emergency logistics preparedness, and response and recovery operations that can be adopted throughout the NY-NJ-CT-PA Region and exported beyond its borders. The Capstone document serves as a common point of reference for any Emergency Response Official who supports logistics operations either within or outside the Region.
See a video on Universal Logistics StandardEmergency managers at every level of government must adopt baseline standards for all elements of their disaster logistics systems (e.g. processes, personnel and facilities). The Regional Logistics Program supports the Universal Logistics Standard as a baseline that will gradually and continuously improve our capability to manage catastrophic disaster logistics.
