Counter-Terrorism Emergency Response Plan - CFATS

While DHS-ISCD manages the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Stanadards (CFATS) program and insures that high-risk chemical facilities have a well thought out and executed Site Security Plan, there are no provisions for an emergency response plan at the state and local level to respond to the consequences of a successful terrorist attack on these high-risk facilities. ISCD and FEMA should ensure that the LEPC has an emergency response plan for such eventuality prepared, reviewed and exercised before ISCD can sign-off on the facility's SSP.
