Realistic disaster scenarios should be incorporated into each of these training techniques to familiarize participants with each others’ roles and responsibilities and to plan for the unique nature of a bioterrorism event. The primary emphasis herein is on the tabletop exercise, which can be conducted by a municipality, state, or federal entity even in the absence of a formalized response plan and without the resources and expenses required for a live drill exercise. A bioterrorism scenario used in statewide training will be examined, along with the participant’s response to that scenario.

The Secretary of Defense has tasked JFCOM to establish a standing JTF-CS to lead DODs response efforts. The JTF-CS is commanded by a general/flag officer and includes an 8-person advance survey party and an 80-person headquarters staff (30 permanent personnel and 50 augmentees). Depending on the nature of the event, the JTF-CS is augmented by various agencies and operational units (medical, transportation, supply, and so on) that may be required in the crisis area.
