Awareness is the key. Each state has a limited weather cycle. Terrorism, and Ideologue attacks, in contrast, are on a twelve (12) month cycle, with no breaks. The Department of Transportation estimates there are 8,200 hazardous materials. At least 45 mandate evacuation.
Federal Government reports have identified likely terrorist targets: Government Buildings; Public Assembly Sites; Symbolic Structures; Utilities; Transportation; Infrastructure; Technology; and the Communications Industry. However, Wacko Groups, and Natural Disasters can affect any Industry or Agency.
Most sites are unprepared for probable man-made and natural threats. Business and Government Agencies must depend on Readiness, Response, and Recovery. Incident Response requires Crisis Management Teams; Incident Management Centers; Incident Management Plans; and Frequent Drills.
