Overview

This ATP, Army Techniques Publication ATP 4-02.42 Army Health System Support to Stability and Defense Support of Civil Authorities Tasks June 2014, establishes Army Health System (AHS) support doctrine and provides the guiding principles for the provision of medical support to stability and defense support of civil authorities (DSCA) tasks.

The principal audience for this publication is commanders, their staffs, medical planners, and personnel at all levels.

This manual is a guide for providing AHS support to stability and DSCA tasks in an area of operations. This publication applies to the Active Army, Army National Guard/Army National Guard of the United States, and the United States Army Reserve, unless otherwise stated.

Army Techniques Publication ATP 4-02.42 Army Health System Support to Stability and Defense Support of Civil Authorities Tasks June 2014 examines the various situations in which Army medical personnel may be required to provide support for stability and DSCA tasks. While the Department of Defense (DOD) is not a provider of first resort in disasters, requests for support from U.S. forces may be required when military-unique capabilities (such as lift capability, engineering, or deployable medical support) exist that can expedite relief efforts during urgent, life-threatening situations.

This manual is a two-part publication. Part one of the ATP discusses AHS support to stability tasks and part two covers medical support to DSCA tasks.

Part two of the manual, which provides a separate discussion of AHS support to DSCA tasks, the National Response Framework (NRF), National Disaster Recovery Framework, and the DOD�s role in the National Disaster Medical System (NDMS).

Army Techniques Publication 4-02.42 consists of seven chapters�
Chapter 1 provides an overview of stability in operations, the primary stability tasks, national and DOD-level guidance, and the importance of ensuring that AHS support to stability tasks is regionally focused and conducted in consonance with the combatant commander�s theater engagement strategy.

Chapter 2 discusses the Department of State�s Post-Conflict Reconstruction Essential Tasks matrix as it relates to the Army primary stability tasks. The chapter also provides the doctrinal description for three of the five Army stability tasks, medical aspects of the supporting initial and transformational response tasks, and corresponding health service support (HSS) and force health protection (FHP) considerations for each task.

Chapter 3 discusses the employment of AHS assets in support of the primary stability tasks, the medical aspects of building partner capacity, the role of civil affairs, legal considerations, and AHS support to operations with a stability focus.

Chapter 4 provides medical planning considerations for AHS support to joint operations and stability tasks to include transition and end state considerations.

Chapter 5 provides a brief overview of the primary DSCA tasks, national and DOD-level guidance. This chapter also provides a brief description of medical aspects of the NRF, National Disaster Recovery Framework, and the NDMS.

Chapter 6 provides legal considerations that may apply when providing medical support to DSCA tasks and a discussion of the support provided for each of the 10 medical functions.

Chapter 7 describes the interorganizational and interagency coordination required in support of DSCA tasks, the process for requesting DOD assistance for support to civil authorities, some of the NDMS medical resources that may be employed during a disaster, as well as some of the participating organizations that may be involved in the relief effort.
