As in previous emergency situations, U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s emergency response is conducted in accordance with the Department of Homeland Security’s National Response Framework.

“Our highest priority in an emergency is the safety of people in the impacted areas,” said CBP Lead Field Coordinator Judson W. Murdock II. “To that end we’ve been asked to staff local, state and federal emergency operations center. We are coordinating with these agencies and are joining search and rescue efforts as requested.”
