Abstract:

This thesis reviews various readiness assessment tools used by military units and the civilian First Responder community. Most civilian readiness assessment tools have fallen short of adequately predicting a response teams probability of mission success or failure. This thesis will explore the use of model-based vulnerability analysis techniques and FT software as potential tools that could be adopted by first response organizations to predict a units operational performance.
