Abstract:

This study examines damage to the New Orleans Fire Department as a result of the Five-City-Study attack and analyzes the fire department capabilities in dealing with the postattack fire situation. After reviewing damage incurred by personnel, facilities, and equipment, the remaining fire-service resources were evaluated with respect to the magnitude of the demand situation and obstacles preventing the satisfaction of these demands. The evaluation considered strength and location of the fire services prior to the attack, casualties and damage incurred to the fire services as a result of the attack, and analysis of the remaining capabilities in the postattack period.
