A mass-casualty incident (MCI) creates a uniquely challenging
management and coordination quagmire. These events can occur
as a result of natural disasters, such as a tsunami, earthquake, or
hurricane; they can be a result of an accident, such as a ferry
sinking during inclement weather; or they can result from an act
of violence, such as a terrorist attack like the 1995 Oklahoma
City bombing or the attacks of September 11, 2001. In any case,
these attacks present a unique challenge to law enforcement,
emergency response teams, and government oversight.
As you explore the different methods used to deal with MCIs, as
well as the different governmental agencies that may be
involved, consider the following:
Assignment Guidelines
In 6-7 paragraphs, address the following:
What federal and state agencies are required to deal with an
MCI resulting from a terrorist attack? Why?
How do you distinguish between federal and state authorities
for both operational and management functions? Explain.
How do you ensure a fusion of effort between federal and state
authorities? Explain.
MCIs resulting from terrorist attacks are considered the purview
of law enforcement. This creates a challenge during
multijurisdictional MCIs. During MCIs resulting from domestic
terrorism, such as the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, what law
enforcement agency should have primary jurisdiction? Why?
How should federal law enforcement engage state and local law
enforcement for support? Why?
Treating long-term physical and mental health effects following
any MCI can prove costly to state governments. How should the
federal government work with states to ensure that proper
medical and mental health is provided? Explain.
What federal and state organizations should be responsible for
these efforts? Why?
