Effective approaches to planning, training and exercising have already been developed to mitigate the effects of natural and manmade disasters, but now local agencies are preparing to respond to new threats to public health and safety. These new threats are from acts of terrorism involving the use of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive weapons.

Exercising allows agencies to test the knowledge, skills, plans and resources they will need to identify, prevent, respond to and recover from a terrorist attack.
