Excerpt
Excerpt: In the two years since the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on America, Federal, State, and local homeland security agencies have made major investments of time and resources to enhance their preparedness to prevent, respond to, and recover from acts of terrorism. It is important to evaluate how well these investments achieve enhanced preparedness. The most effective way to evaluate preparedness prior to an actual incident is by conducting and evaluating threat- and performance-based exercises. Exercises provide a risk-free environment for jurisdictions to assess if they have the plans, policies, procedures, resources, and agreements in place to enable homeland security personnel to perform critical tasks required to prevent, respond to, or recover from a terrorist attack.
