Abstract:

This report employs a deliberate planning process with specified costing factors and planning assumptions to calculate national-level costs for building and sustaining capabilities of the first responders to save lives and protect property during a terrorism incident. America's first line of defense in any terrorist attack is its first responder community--firefighters, law enforcement, emergency medical services system, and emergency management personnel--that coordinates the response operations of these elements. Their preparedness to deal with the unique aspects of a terrorism incident is the primary determinant in saving lives in the local communities in which they serve. The events of September 11, 2001, and the subsequent anthrax attacks have underscored the importance of ensuring that sufficient support is provided to these State and local first responders to allow them to build and sustain capabilities to prepare for and respond to terrorist incidents occurring in the homeland.
