Homeland Security Planning Scenarios • The White House Homeland Security Council (HSC) - in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the federal interagency, and state and local homeland security agencies - developed fifteen all-hazards planning scenarios for use in national, federal, state, and local homeland security preparedness activities. These scenarios are designed to be the foundational structure for the development of national preparedness standards from which homeland security capabilities can be measured. While these scenarios reflect a rigorous analytical effort by federal, state, and local homeland security experts, it is recognized that refinement and revision over time may be necessary to ensure the scenarios remain accurate, represent the evolving all-hazards threat picture, and embody the capabilities necessary to respond to domestic incidents.

MISSION AREAS The following Mission Areas were used to assist in scoping the response requirements generated by the scenarios.
The ability to prevent (stop), deter (stop it very quickly after it starts), or protect against terrorist actions. 1-Prevention/Deterrence/Protection
Mission Area 1/ Bubonic Warfare • Prevention/Protection: The area requires knowledge of people with the skills to grow and aerosolize plague, reconnaissance of supplies and laboratories, and public health protection measures.
Mission Area 2 Notes How will the community find out it is going to happen or has happened?: Public alerts, mobilization of the National Strategic Stockpile How bad is it?: Fatal. Is it top secret, general public knowledge, classified?: General Public Knowledge. Did it harm the enviornment?: No How will governments talk to each other about this? Mail, e-mail, phone, conferences, ect.: All of the above
Mission Area 3 Notes How are we going to control the situation and tell everyone how we are going to control it?: First we can start off by staying calm. Secondly we control the situation by staying clean, healthy, and rodent free. Thirdly we can tell everyone about the healthy things we have inhabited to stay “Plague Free”. Forthly we can inform scientists, doctors, or others to help with the situation.
Mission Area 4 Notes Find what is wrong and how bad it is: What’s wrong is that it is really contagiouse, and that is bad. What agencies need to help find what is wrong and how bad it is: Maybe scientists, and the health department to find out antidotes and medicine, it also may be a little hard for them to do so.
2-Emergency Assessment/Diagnosis The ability to detect an incident (how will the community find out it is going to happen or has happened?), determine its impact (how bad is it), classify the incident(is it top secret, general public Knowledge, Classified?), conduct environmental monitoring (did it harm the enviornment?),and make government-to-government notifications (how will governments talk to each other about this? Mail, e-Mail, phone, conferences, ect.).
3-Emergency Management/Response The ability to direct, control, and coordinate a response (how are we going to control the situation and tell everyone how we are going to control it); provide emergency public information to the population at risk and the population at large; and manage resources - this outcome includes direction and control through the Incident Command System (ICS), Emergency Operations Center (EOC), and Joint Information Center (JIC).
4-Incident/Hazard Mitigation The ability to control, collect, and contain an incident at its source and to mitigate the magnitude of its impact (find what is wrong and how bad it is); this outcome also includes all response tasks conducted at the incident scene except those specifically associated with victim care. (what agencies need to help find what is wrong and how bad it is)
Public Protection The ability to provide initial warnings to the population at large and the population at risk, notifying people to shelter-inplace or evacuate; provide evacuee support (e.g., transportation for evacuees, reception center, sand shelters); protect schools and special populations; and manage traffic flow and access to the affected area.
Victim Care The ability to treat victims at the scene, transport patients, treat patients at a medical treatment facility, track patients, handle and track human remains, and provide tracking and security of patients‘ possessions and evidence
Investigation/Apprehension The ability to investigate the cause and source of the attack; prevent secondary attacks; and identify, apprehend, and prosecute those responsible.
Recovery/Remediation The ability to restore essential services, restore businesses and commerce, cleanup the environment and render the affected area safe, compensate victims, provide long-term mental health and other services to victims and the public, and restore a sense of well-being in the community .
