The ESF-8 Portal is a suite of applications used to support ESF-8 and its partners in daily operations and in times of declared emergencies. Depending upon the needs of the user and their security permissions, the Portal presents the applications needed by that user without unnecessary distractions. This customization is built on a single sign-on security foundation, making the Portal and its component applications easy to use and consistent.
