USNORTHCOM, National Guard leaders: Partnerships key to domestic response
"One of the most valuable things about the Guard is our ability to establish and maintain strong partnerships," said Air Force Gen. Craig McKinley, chief of the National Guard Bureau. "Partnerships are what make the National Guard what we are – whether it's our partnership with our parent services, … our partnership with foreign nations in the State Partnership Program … or our partnership with local authorities and civilians in communities across the country.
"It harnesses DoD support in a unified way and connects it intimately to the needs and power of our communities," Jacoby said. "I am very proud that, given our first opportunity during Hurricane Irene, the memorandum of agreement signatures from governors began to flow quickly as Irene approached and four governors – North Carolina, New York, Rhode Island and New Hampshire – requested designation of an actual dual-status commander for Hurricane Irene, which Secretary Panetta approved quickly."

These 10 zones had the formations of what we can call a COG, Continuity of Government/ Military. In reality a Martial Law Zone, run by Generals and insiders of the Secret Government.
