A disaster or terrorist attack can occur anywhere and at any time.

A disaster or terrorist attack can occur anywhere and at any time. The four classical phases of the emergency management cycle provide a framework for communities, states, and the federal government to prevent/mitigate, prepare, respond, and recover from these incidents. The NRFdescribes the roles and responsibilities not only of public-sector agencies but also of the private sector, NGOs, and individuals and households. The extent to which a community can endure and survive a major disaster or terrorist attack reflects how its emergency plan was constructed; using the four classical phases as a guide.

Within the context of the NRF, if you were a local emergency manager, discuss how you would best prepare a community for a large-scale emergency attack or disaster?
