Emergency Planning and Methodology

For this emergency planning Case Assignment, you will become familiar with the NRF, especially regarding acts of terrorism. Many people assume that terrorists are persons living overseas who would do harm to those in other countries. There has been a proliferation of terrorists on U.S. soil—known as “homegrown terrorists,” “lone wolf operatives,” and those infiltrating known groups (e.g., animal rights groups, anti-abortionists).

In order to respond to the following questions, review the Background reading:

1.United States Government interagency domestic terrorism concept of operations plan (2001). http://www.fas.org/irp/threat/conplan.html

2.Review of the Department’s preparation to respond to a WMD incident (2010), U.S. Department of Justice, I-2010-004. http://www.justice.gov/oig/reports/plus/e1004.pdf

3.National Response Framework, Fourth Edition (2019, October 28). FEMA. Retrieved from https://www.fema.gov/sites/default/files/2020-04/N…

Respond to the following:

1.How is a response to destruction from a terrorist incident different from a response to a natural disaster? Be specific, give examples, and quote from the readings.

2.First responders should isolate hazards by establishing control zones. There are three types of control zones. List them and give examples. Cite your sources.

Assignment Expectations

Length: This Case Assignment should be 4-6 pages, not counting the title page and references.

References: At least two references should be included from academic sources (e.g., peer-reviewed journal articles). Required readings are included.

When material is copied verbatim from external sources, it MUST be enclosed in quotes. The references should be cited within the text and listed at the end of the assignment in the References section (preferably in APA format).

Organization: Subheadings should be used to organize your paper according to question.

Grammar and Spelling: While no points are deducted for minor errors, assignments are expected to adhere to standard guidelines of grammar, spelling, punctuation, and sentence syntax. Points may be deducted if grammar and spelling impact clarity.
