1 Law Enforcement Protective Measures Incident Command and Law Enforcement Response Actions

2 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Objectives Identify the functions and responsibilities associated with the ICS Discuss the purpose and functioning of the UCS and its implementation during an incident Utilize the Emergency Response Guidebook to construct an Initial Isolation Zone and Protective Action Zone, as well as to define the characteristics of the hot, warm, and cold zones

3 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Objectives (continued) Discuss the development of an Incident Action Plan on scene and the proper procedures for implementation of the plan Discuss how to implement initial site management procedures, as well as law enforcement protective measures and actions

8 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 When To Use Unified Command UC may be used whenever multiple jurisdictions are involved in a response effort, such as:  Differing geographical boundaries  Differing governmental levels  Differing functional responsibilities

10 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Emergency Response Guidebook ERG provides responders with capability of predicting downwind hazards at CBRNE event

11 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Emergency Response Guidebook (continued) If available, software such as ADASHI can help make downwind hazard prediction quicker Sample Plume Projection by ADASHI

12 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Establishment of Zones Hot Zone (Exclusion Zone) Warm Zone (Contamination Reduction Zone) Cold Zone (Support Zone)

13 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Using the Guidebook Step 1: Using chemical name, look-up 4 digit ID number (blue pages) If chemical name is not found, use: Nerve:2810 Blood:1051

14 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Using the Guidebook (continued) Step 2: Determine isolate and protect distances (green pages) Need to know the size and time of release IDNameIsolateProtect Day Protect Night IsolateProtect Day Protect Night 1017Chlorine100 ft.0.2 miles0.8 miles800 ft.1.5 miles4.6 miles Small SpillsLarge Spills

15 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Using the Guidebook (continued) Step 3: Draw circle with radius of isolation distance Mark the wind direction Draw a box size of protect distance, place upwind edge over center of the circle towards downwind r r

16 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Actions After Prediction Pass information to the Incident Commander Warn Evacuate or shelter in place? Pass information to the IC

17 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Other Considerations Hazard prediction: estimate only Reconnaissance determines actual hazard HazMat personnel in Level A PPE

18 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Incident Action Plan (IAP) Overall incident objectives and strategies Written plan preferable to oral plan, because it clearly demonstrates responsibility IAP is designed around operational periods Operational period is no longer than 24 hours

19 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Phases of Comprehensive IAP 1.Understand the situation 2.Establish incident objectives and strategy 3.Develop the plan 4.Prepare and disseminate the plan 5.Evaluate and revise the plan

20 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Construction of Incident Action Plan 1.Briefing on situation and resource status 2.Set control objectives 3.Plot control lines and division boundaries 4.Specify tactics for each division or group 5.Specify resources needed by division or group 6.Specify facilities and reporting locations; plot on map 7.Place resource and overhead personnel order 8.Consider communications, medical, and traffic plan requirements

21 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Implementation of Incident Action Plan 1.Set the deadline for completing IAP attachments 2.Obtain plan attachments and review them for accuracy 3.Determine the number of IAPs required 4.IAP reproduced for distribution 5.Ensure IAP is up to date and complete prior to operations briefing 6.Provide the IAP briefing plan and distribute prior to new operational period

22 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 IC and Law Enforcement Response Actions Scenario—Situational Considerations 1.The wind is southwest to northeast at five miles per hour 2.The humidity level is 80% 3.It is during evening rush hour 4.The large structures within the initial three blocks of downwind will channelize the associated hazard.

23 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 IC and Law Enforcement Response Actions—Scenario Discussion 1.You were 1,000 feet from the initial blast site at the time of detonation. What should you do? 2.How will you conduct crowd control? 3.How will you isolate the site to prevent further contamination and safeguard evidence? 4.What action needs to be taken to address the downwind hazard?

24 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 IC and Law Enforcement Response Actions—Scenario Discussion (continued) 5.From your modeling of the site, what buildings are likely to be affected from downwind hazards? 6.What assets do you have within the community to assist with the WMD site? 7.Is there a risk of multiple devices?

25 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Law Enforcement Response Actions Begin upon notification that an incident has occurred Address immediate life and safety needs Massachusetts State Police Incident Command Post

26 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Location of Incident Command Post Upwind, uphill, and/or upstream Far enough from incident site to maintain focus and reduce distractions Initially use mobile command unit Fixed facilities Other preplanned, secured, sheltered facility

27 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Establishment of Communications Activate communications unit/leader Assign individual radio channels to groups, branches, and/or divisions Request dedicated cellular frequencies Do not use departmental 10-codes—speak in plain English Identify communications incompatibilities Be prepared to use runner and liaison assistants

28 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Establishment of Perimeters Establish Perimeters:  Where incident occurred  Paths of entry and exit  Where victims are moved Set up barriers Document:  Exit and entry of all individuals  Original location of victims or objects  Actions of anyone that changes or affects the scene Police Perimeter at WTC After 9/11 Attack

29 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Differences Between HazMat and CBRNE A CBRNE incident is a calculated act intended to maim and/or kill people, destroy property, or topple existing infrastructures CBRNE agents are supertoxic materials, and not typically the hazardous substances found at a HazMat incident

30 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Evidence Preservation Actions and observations are very important Everything is potential evidence Communicate observations of evidence to other responders and to incident command Record observations and actions as soon as possible Victims can provide critical evidence

31 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Initial Response to Scene First-arriving responder:  Note prearrival information (time, date, address, etc.)  Be aware of any persons or vehicles leaving crime scene  Note possible secondary crime scenes  Make initial observations (look, listen, smell)  Treat crime as ongoing until otherwise known  Document all observations

32 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Crime Scene Considerations Golden Rule: Leave it alone, unless it is absolutely necessary for the performance of duties with law enforcement approval Second Rule: Do the job using the fewest number of people possible Birmingham Women’s Clinic

33 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Tactical Considerations and Actions Level C PPE Center for Domestic Preparedness Proper level of PPE Crew rotation Weather considerations Establishment of staging areas Resource positioning Evacuation Issues

34 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Evacuation Considerations Time Distance Shielding Building Evacuation

35 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Conclusion Identify the functions and responsibilities associated with the ICS Discuss the purpose and functioning of the UCS and its implementation during an incident Utilize the Emergency Response Guidebook to construct an Initial Isolation Zone and Protective Action Zone, as well as to define the characteristics of the hot, warm, and cold zones

36 Presenter’s Name June 17, 2003 Conclusion (continued) Discuss the development of an Incident Action Plan (IAP) on scene and the proper procedures for implementation of the plan Discuss how to implement initial site management procedures, as well as law enforcement protective measures and actions
