The Military Partnerships: Terrorism

United States Northern Command

U.S. Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) was
established October 1, 2002, to provide command and control of Department of Defense
(DoD) homeland defense efforts and to coordinate defense support of civil
authorities. NORTHCOM defends America’s homeland—protecting our people,
national power, and freedom of action.*

*From NORTHCOM website.

North American Aerospace Defense Command
(NORAD)

North American Aerospace Defense Command
(NORAD) is a United States and Canada binational organization charged with the
missions of aerospace warning and aerospace control for North America.
Aerospace warning includes the monitoring of man-made objects in space, and the
detection, validation, and warning of attack against North America whether by
aircraft, missiles, or space vehicles, through mutual support arrangements with
other commands.**

2011 NORAD and USNORTHCOM Posture Statement

Posture Statement: Counterterrorism and Force
Protection. Because violent extremists present a threat that currently exhibits
both the capability and the intent to attack our nation, Counterterrorism and
Force Protection continue to be a vital focus area for USNORTHCOM and NORAD.***

***From Winnefeld, A.J.A. (2011). Posture
Statement, 
p. 3.

Refer to the above three sources plus the NRF
when answering the questions below:

  1. How would you include
    the DoD in your Emergency Response Plan? Or would you?
  2. Scenario: A federal
    building suddenly blows up in your city where you are in charge of the
    Emergency Response Plan. You are called by law enforcement officers who note
    that they have apprehended three military personnel with explosives in their
    possession. The two men and one woman are listed as AWOL; they have threatened
    that if they are not released, another operative will blow up more undisclosed
    buildings. The police have contacted the FBI and will detain the personnel.
    Meanwhile, two more buildings explode near a military outpost in which
    civilians and military personnel were killed. What will be your first step?
    Why? Be specific and cite your sources.
  3. As Incident Commander,
    would you be in charge of posting U.S. Army personnel in strategic locations in
    your town during a terrorist attack? Please cite specific policy in your
    response.

Module 2 – SLP

The Military
Partnerships

The Military Partnerships: Humanitarian/Support
Role

The role of the Department of Defense (DoD) is
outlined in certain directives. Its function is specific to natural disasters
(e.g., hurricanes, floods, and tornadoes) and to man-made disasters (e.g.,
major toxic spill or terrorist attack). Knowing the DoD’s role in your ERP and
as outlined in a Concept of Operations Plan is essential. Moreover, knowing how
the DoD will interface with other support sectors will lessen any confusion
when a disaster occurs.

  1. Find language
    regarding military involvement in the NRF. Especially note the command
    structure. Would the National Guard (if deemed necessary) be called out first?
    By whom? When would the Guard be called out—give examples. When would a
    military branch (e.g., the Army) be called out? Remember to cite your sources.
  2. Locate other
    directives regarding the military’s possible involvement during a national
    emergency. Under what conditions would the armed services be involved? What
    would be some of their functions? Remember to cite your sources.
