Excerpt
Preface: The National Strategy for Homeland Security and the Homeland Security Act of 2002 identify the ?prevention of terrorist attacks within the United States? and ?the reduction of vulnerability of the United States to terrorism? as national priorities, and call on first responders to ?minimize the damage and assist in the recovery from terrorist attacks that do occur within the United States.? The Homeland Security Act also transferred the Office for Domestic Preparedness (ODP) from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and assigned ODP ?the primary responsibility within the executive branch of government to build and sustain the preparedness of the United States to reduce vulnerabilities, prevent, respond to, and recover from acts of terrorism.? Although effective approaches to planning, training, and exercises have been developed to mitigate the effects of natural and manmade disasters, homeland security professionals at all levels of government and in all types of communities must prepare to prevent and respond to new threats to public safety from terrorism involving the use of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, or explosive (CBRNE) weapons or cyber or agricultural hostility. DHS/ODP has designed its programs to address the delta between the ?all hazards? emergency response requirements needed for natural disasters and the specialized requirements related to terrorism. Under the Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP), U.S. States and territories and the District of Columbia have conducted risk and needs assessments and developed homeland security strategies. DHS/ODP provides grant funds and direct support to help address the equipment, training, and exercise needs identified in these strategies. The Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) reference manuals deliver an exercise program that helps address identified planning, training, and equipment needs and provides homeland security professionals with the tools to plan, conduct, and evaluate exercises to improve overall preparedness. This manual, HSEEP Volume I: Overview: and Doctrine, provides a synopsis of DHS/ODP?s overall preparedness activities as well as its exercise program and the planning and evaluation process. This document is the first in a series of HSEEP resources that includes three additional volumes to help State and local jurisdictions establish exercise programs and design, develop, conduct, and evaluate exercises. The HSEEP resource documents include the following manuals, available at the DHS/ODP Website.
