Abstract:

State and local governments rely on the federal government to develop national priorities, determine gaps in national preparedness, and provide technical assistance and specialized resources for state and local planning that addresses national priorities. Demand for trained state and local first responders is increasing proportionally as the terrorist threat increases. Following the September 11 attacks, state and local governments will devote massive resources to protect their citizens, respond to threats and hoaxes, and bolster preparedness. This study will examine ways that the U.S. Army Reserve can leverage its force structure and core competencies with local, state, and federal governments to support consequence management operations and enhance Homeland Security.
