Q

Elaborate on Decisive Action - DSCA

A

For Army forces, DSCA is a task that takes place only in the homeland and U.S. territories. DSCA is conducted in support of another primary or lead federal agency, or in some cases local authorities. When DSCA is authorized, it consists of those four tasks. National Guard forces in Title 32 or SAD under the command and control of the governor and the adjutant general are usually the first forces to respond on behalf of state authorities. When Federal forces are employed for DSCA activities, they remain under Federal military command and control at all times.
