The Department of Defense is appropriately responsible for Homeland Defense and established Northern Command to execute this mission. In addition to Homeland Defense, Northern Command is responsible for supporting the Department of Homeland Security with civil support and ensures the safety of United States citizens during events such as man-made and natural disasters. It is not a matter of if another mass casualty event will occur within the United States, but a question of when the next event will occur.
