An extensive fictional case study analysis and report ("A City Under Attack: A Fictional Scenario and Report to Analyze, Respond To, Mitigate, and Prevent a Multi-stage Terror Attack") is now available on Academia.edu:
There are few events more terrifying than a terror attack, particularly a well-planned and coordinated one. Based upon a fictional scenario developed and set in downtown Los Angeles, California, the aftermath of, effects from, and response to a multi-modal, multi-stage, cascading terror attack can be assessed, in order to better prevent and mitigate such an attack. By exploring the details of the emergency, first responder, and law enforcement response, as well as that of the public, strengths and weaknesses are more easily identified. Furthermore, concrete action-items are identified in order to exploit these strengths and fortify the weaknesses, including in the areas of education, training, communications, technology, policy, the intelligence and law enforcement communities, risk assessment and management, and future scenario development. The conclusion is, ultimately, one both favorable and sobering: although domestic terror attacks within the United States are extraordinarily difficult to prevent, an abundant and sufficient amount of training, preparation, and pre-planned coordination can help to ensure that the best possible response is enacted, with the best possible outcomes.
