Challenges of Integrating Homeland Security Intervention

Managing an efficient and coordinated homeland security response system is a complicated and challenging process. The delivery of effective homeland security preparedness, incident response, and disaster recovery are inherently daunting administrative necessities. Nevertheless, coordinating these elements is absolutely vital to assuring an adequate response to all hazards that may arise.

  1. Can the nation effectively prepare, respond, and recover regardless of what kind of hazard is anticipated?
  2. If so, what is the best strategy for preparing for the eventual necessity of dealing with these hazards?
  3. Is the all-hazards approach to homeland security a reasonable use of limited resources?
  4. Should an all-hazards approach be pursued regardless of cost?
