Viewpoints in Homeland Defense and Security: Thesis Series: Case for State and Local Integration of the Separate Federal Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program [video]   [open html - 0B]

From the Video Description: "NPS-CHDS [Naval Postgraduate School-Center for Homeland Defense and Security] master's graduate Matt Heckard (MA1803/1804), Assistant Director, Preparedness for the State of Arizona [hyperlink], talks about his thesis which provides an overview and policy options analysis of offsite radiological emergency preparedness and response protocols for commercial nuclear power plants. This program is developed by the federal government and implemented by state and local government emergency management as the Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program [hyperlink] (REPP). The capabilities built under the separate REPP, if integrated within the wider emergency preparedness enterprise, could be properly accounted for and included in a community-wide assessment of its aggregate capabilities within its existing all-hazards program. The research question for this thesis addresses which benefits, shortfalls, and challenges emerge from the integration of the hazard-specific emergency preparedness and response program established under REPP with the all-hazards core capabilities and the National Preparedness System [hyperlink] doctrine." The duration of this video is 10 minutes and 10 seconds. The complete thesis can be accessed at the following web address: [https://www.hsdl.org/?abstract&did=834479].
