ABSTRACT

Counter-Terrorism: National Priorities and the Federal Plan of Action (1999 Region III Chemical Emergency Preparedness & Prevention Conference)   [open pdf - 6MB]

The following is an overview of this presentation on counter-terrorism: CT Timeline; National CT Program including Domestic Preparedness Program, and DOJ/FBI, FEMA, HHS, DoD, DoE, and EPA; CT Grant Programs; and a conclusion. The conclusion states that the potential for a large NBC terrorist incident is becoming more real; NBC incidents are also hazmat incidents and require very similar hazmat response; EPA brings the existing system for hazmat response, and coordination experience with state and local responders, to the federal response terrorism event; and many incidents may not require activation of the full system and responders must be prepared for these situations.
