Risk management and threat assessments have been used for many years, but in the post 9/11 world these topics have become center stage for all emergency services. For your essay paper, discuss how the attacks of 9/11 brought the various emergency service agencies together, and as a result what programs were implemented. Address how the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) adopted an “all-hands” approach to evaluating, planning, assisting, and recovering from terrorist attacks. Include a section that talks about other types of emergencies and the importance of identifying threat vulnerabilities.
Your response to the research question must be a minimum of 475 words in length. The textbook must be one source used. You may pick any second source from the Waldorf Online Library for a minimum of two references. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced. Paraphrased and/or quoted materials must have accompanying citations in APA style.
