Homeland Security Preparedness Technical Assistance Program (HSPTAP): Technical Assistance Catalog   [open pdf - 509KB]

"ODP's Homeland Security Preparedness Technical Assistance Program provides direct assistance to State and local jurisdictions to improve their ability to prevent, respond to, and recover from threats or acts of terrorism involving chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) weapons. A primary objective of the program is to enhance the capacity of State and local jurisdictions, as well as special needs jurisdictions such as port authorities and mass transit agencies to develop, plan, and implement effective strategies for CBRNE preparedness. Technical Assistance (TA) may be provided to State and local governments, law enforcement, fire, hazardous materials, and other community agencies that have CBRNE responsibilities. CBRNE terrorism prevention, response, and recovery, as outlined in the Homeland Security Presidential Directive/HSPD-8, December 2003, are defining elements of the Homeland Security Preparedness Technical Assistance Program, and serve as the foundation for all TA services. As a result, this catalog is divided into three sections that correspond with these preparedness objectives: Terrorism Prevention, Terrorism Response, and Terrorism Recovery."
