57th Presidential Inauguration

On January 21, 2013 President Barack Obama was inaugurated into his second term of office.  The Inauguration was designated as a National Special Security Event (NSSE) by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano in accordance with Homeland Security Presidential Directive 7 and 18 USC 3056.  The designation of this event as an NSSE enabled a host of Federal Government resources to be used in the development of event security and incident management plans to ensure the safety of all participants.

The Office of National Capital Region Coordination played a role supporting emergency planning and preparedness activities in the National Capital Region (NCR) in advance of and during the NSSE by:

  • In partnership with FEMA Region III, coordinating regional planning efforts between federal, state, and local partners within the NCR.
  • Providing situational awareness to federal, state, and local partners through the National Capital Region Watch Desk enabling our partners to make informed decisions, resulting in better coordination and integration of efforts.
