In carrying out this function, the task force shall identify and assess potential risks to the domestic security and well-being of New Jersey's citizens, including risks to, and disruptions of, essential State and local infrastructures, transportation networks, public and private telecommunications and information networks, financial systems and networks, the delivery and availability of essential health care services, and the potential impact of terroristic chemical, biological and nuclear attacks or sabotage.

In this regard, the task force shall be charged with managing responses in accordance with the State Emergency Operations Plan and serve as an all-hazards response center. The disaster remediation, recovery and response functions performed by the task force shall supplement those disaster relief functions currently performed by the Office of Emergency Management in the Division of State Police, which shall continue in its current capacity, subject to the direction and supervision of the Superintendent of State Police. The task force and Office of Emergency Management shall coordinate and consult with each other on the performance of their respective remediation, recovery and relief functions.
