1 United States Fire Administration Chief Officer Training Curriculum Operations Module 12: Terrorist Incident Simulation Exercise

2 United States Fire Administration Ops 12-2 Objectives  Identify the elements of pre-incident planning for terrorist incidents  Identify the elements of a Site Safety and Health Plan  Identify potential terrorist incident complexities  Establish incident objectives

3 United States Fire Administration Ops 12-3 Objectives (continued)  Determine strategies  Select tactics  Identify and request resources  Select alternate solutions  Establish an appropriate ICS organization to manage a terrorist incident

4 United States Fire Administration Ops 12-4 Pre-Incident Planning  Awareness of terrorist incident cues  Training  Equipment—safety, decon, treatment  Resources—local, state, and Federal  Capabilities and weaknesses of agencies

5 United States Fire Administration Ops 12-5 Site Safety and Health Plan (SSHP)  Required for haz mat incidents: OSHA  Documents site safety: –Zone locations –Nature of hazard –Type of PPE –Type of decontamination procedures

6 United States Fire Administration Ops 12-6 Community EOP  Assigns responsibility to organizations and individuals  Sets forth lines of authority and organizational relationships  Describes how people and property will be protected  Identifies resources available  Identifies steps to address mitigation

7 United States Fire Administration Ops 12-7 State EOPs  State EOPs assist local jurisdictions  States respond to emergencies  States work with Federal government  State EOP is framework guiding Federal assistance

8 United States Fire Administration Ops 12-8 National Response Plan (NRP)   HSPD-5 caused the creation of a National Response Plan (NRP)   Integrates Federal Government domestic prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery plans into one all- discipline, all-hazards plan   Provides the interface for working with the private sector   Replaces the Federal Response Plan   Coordinates other Federal plans   Crisis and consequence management actions are consolidated under the NRP   The NRP utilizes NIMS in response to domestic incidents

9 United States Fire Administration Ops 12-9 National Response Plan (NRP) (Cont’d)   Implemented when state’s resources cannot cope   Is the Federal plan for response to domestic terrorism   Details assistance available from Federal government   Describes organizational structure for assistance

10 United States Fire Administration Ops NRP Annexes   Emergency Support Functions (ESFs) increased from 12 to 15 – added: – –Public Safety and Security (law enforcement) – –Long-Term Community Recovery and Mitigation – –External Affairs   Support Annexes – examples: – –Volunteer and Donations Management – –Worker Safety and Health   Incident Annexes – example: – –Terrorism Incident Law Enforcement and Investigation Annex

11 United States Fire Administration Ops Terrorism Incident Law Enforcement and Investigation Annex   Purpose – –To facilitate an effective Federal law enforcement and investigative response to all threats or acts of terrorism within the United States.   Policies – –To ensure applicable Presidential directives are implemented in a coordinated manner, particularly those involving weapons of mass destruction (WMD), or chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, or high- explosive (CBRNE) material.   According to HSPD-5: – –“The Attorney General (generally acting through the Federal Bureau of Investigation) has lead responsibility for criminal investigations of terrorist acts or terrorist threats …”

12 United States Fire Administration Ops Terrorism Incident Law Enforcement and Investigation Annex: Concept of Operations - The Response   Prior to an actual WMD or CBRNE incident, law enforcement, intelligence, and investigative activities generally have priority.   When an incident results in the use of WMD or CBRNE material, rescue and life-safety activities generally have priority.   Activities may overlap and/or run concurrently during the incident management, and are dependent on the threat and/or the strategies for responding to the incident.

13 United States Fire Administration Ops Terrorism Incident Law Enforcement and Investigation Annex: Concept of Operations - Command & Control   FBI personnel can be expected to integrate into the Unified Command organization in the following manner: – –First FBI Special Agent (SA) or Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) member receives initial briefing from the Incident Commander - works closely with the Incident Commander as a member of the Unified Command – –When relieved by more senior FBI SA, the first arriving SA or JTTF member moves to the Operations Section as the Deputy Operations Section Chief – –An FBI SA assumes the position of Deputy Planning Section Chief

14 United States Fire Administration Ops Terrorism Incident Law Enforcement and Investigation Annex: Concept of Operations - Command & Control   Investigative and intelligence activities are managed by the FBI from an FBI command post or Joint Operations Center (JOC).   Intelligence Function – –Manages the collection, analysis, archiving, and dissemination of relevant and valid investigative and strategic intelligence. – –Fuses historical intelligence from a variety of sources with new intelligence specific to the threat, critical incident, or special event.

15 United States Fire Administration Ops Terrorism Incident Law Enforcement and Investigation Annex: Concept of Operations - Joint Operations Center   An interagency command and control center for managing multi-agency law enforcement activities   Similar to the Area Command concept within the ICS   The JOC is modular and scaleable and may be tailored to meet the specific operational requirements needed to manage the threat, incident, or special event

20 United States Fire Administration Ops Law Enforcement  Interaction of local, state, and Federal agencies in public view  Physical evidence critical—recognize, collect, and preserve  Interviews and testimony—keep records  Photograph and videotape scene whenever possible

21 United States Fire Administration Ops Tactical Considerations  Understand scope of problem  Make notifications  Request adequate/specialized resources  Develop an incident organization  Protect personnel safety
