Effective response to a terrorist WMD attack depends, in large part, on the capability of local responding agencies to rapidly focus available assets in accordance with valid operational plans to save lives and mitigate injury to the greatest extent possible. This course proposes a framework for emergency management and response based on the principles of counter-terrorist preparation and incident command leading to the timely marshalling and effective utilization of available assets in accordance with pre-established plans reflecting accepted guidelines and standards within a logistics, personnel and communications infrastructure designed to ensure robust and reliable intervention.
