9781422001240: 21st Century Emergencies and Disasters: Department of Homeland Security National Response Plan and FEMA Training Course Manuals Collection on Disaster Management, Terrorism Response (CD-ROM)

This electronic book on CD-ROM provides a unique and comprehensive collection of major Federal government documents on disaster management and terrorism response: DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY NATIONAL RESPONSE PLAN - The NRP establishes a comprehensive, national, all-hazards approach to domestic incident management across a spectrum of activities. It is predicated on the National Incident Management System (NIMS). The NIMS is a nationwide template enabling government and nongovernmental responders to respond to all domestic incidents. The plan incorporates best practices and procedures from incident management disciplines - homeland security, emergency management, law enforcement, firefighting, public works, public health, responder and recovery worker health and safety, emergency medical services, and the private sector - and integrates them into a unified structure. It forms the basis of how the federal government coordinates with state, local, and tribal governments and the private sector during incidents. It establishes protocols to help: Save lives and protect the health and safety of the public, responders, and recovery workers; Ensure security of the homeland; Prevent an imminent incident, including acts of terrorism, from occurring; Protect and restore critical infrastructure and key resources; Conduct law enforcement investigations to resolve the incident, apprehend the perpetrators, and collect and preserve evidence for prosecution and/or attribution; Protect property and mitigate damages and impacts to individuals, communities, and the environment; and facilitate recovery of individuals, families, businesses, governments, and the environment.
