Abstract : Since September 11, 2001, the Department of Defense began reorganizing the CBRNE response model. The enhanced structure formed based on the guidance from the National Response Framework. Response to domestic incidents has come under scrutiny because of lack of effectiveness. Considering the new CBRNE response enterprise has never been fully utilized in a domestic incident, the question arises if the new enterprise provides the most effective response model. Consequently, what improvements can be made to improve upon the model to ensure enhanced effectiveness?
