In the case study in your assigned reading, “An All-Hazards Training Center for a Catastrophic Emergency,” the author makes his case for establishing an all-hazards training center in each Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) region. What do you think of this idea? What benefits do you think it would provide? Would this be a valuable use of funds, or is this capability not needed? Is it redundant with already existing capabilities? What are your thoughts?
Your journal entry must be at least 200 words. No references or citations are necessary.

Unit VII Case Study
Of the different types of WMD, nuclear and biological attacks are the most devastating. Challenges facing terrorist groups in obtaining these weapons are in some ways very different, yet they also share many similar characteristics. In both cases, equipment to manufacture the weapon must be gathered, materials must be obtained for assembly, and the manufacturing know-how must be developed. Additionally, the actual device must be produced, transported to its delivery point, and activated (detonated) against the target population.
Write a case study to compare the differences between a nuclear or biological WMD in challenges that nonspecific terrorist group would face between developing a nuclear or biological weapon and acquiring the equipment, materials, and technical skills for weaponizing and delivering such an attack. How is each best detected and prevented? For example, it is difficult to obtain fissile material to make a nuclear bomb whereas information on getting a biological pathogen is available on the Internet. A pathogen can be hidden in a vial whereas a nuclear bomb is bigger and can be detected with a radiation detector, for example.
At what step is the best opportunity to prevent the terrorist network from trading, acquisitioning, and manufacturing/assembling each type? How can collaborating with industry improve our ability to prevent terrorist groups (illicit trading and production of materials) from obtaining these devices? How could the strategic placement of supplies impact the health and safety of the population? Finally, how do the strategies for preparation, mitigation, and response differ for each of these types of WMD?
Utilize the case studies in your reading assignment, and include at least two other references in your case study—one nuclear and one biological WMD related.
Your assignment should be at least two pages in length and in APA style. You may use your textbook as source material for your response and two outside sources. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations and/or in-text citations follow APA formatting guidelines. No title page is required but a reference page for sources is.
