Abstract:

Todays world climate remains volatile. Since the attacks on September 11, 2001, Americans have awakened to the on-going threat of terrorism. Widely dispersed chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and cyberspace security CBRN-C materials, technologies and equipment often have dual uses. Preventing rogue states and terrorist organizations state or non-state supported from acquiring these materials is a formidable challenge. Furthermore, the world is experiencing dramatic weather changes. Global climate change has caused unusual and devastating shifts in weather patterns, which in turn have triggered catastrophic events. This SRP proposes establishment of a network of National Guard NG Continuity of Operation COOP sites to strengthen the U.S Governments response to catastrophic events. This SRP provides a strategic methodology and standardized template for using the NG as a force multiplier to support the federal government through dedicated COOP sites.
