In this paper you will use your knowledge of critical incident response policy and the lessons learned from at least two events to evaluate national response policy under the National Incident Management System (NIMS). The focus of your paper is response policy (NIMS) and its implementation. The paper should explain current national response policy and existing criticisms of the system. You should also relate this to the lessons learned from your event. The paper needs to be tightly focused on issues in incident response. For example, the intelligence failures that led to an incident are outside the scope of the paper. The focus is on analysis of lessons from response operations and the management of incidents. Based upon your analysis you should provide recommendations on how you would improve or change the system to improve its effectiveness. You are required to write eight to ten pages of narrative. Other material, such as the cover page, references, graphs, charts, lists, quotes photos, and so forth, do not count toward the page count.
