Which hazards do you perceive would become the most dangerous threat to the United States?
Consider CBRNE, natural, and technological hazards. Based on a terrorist attack, which hazard(s) do you perceive would become the most dangerous threat to the United States? What hazard(s) do you perceive to present the least risk to the United States? Consider combined hazards. Describe an appropriate response to the risk(s) posed by the most dangerous threat.
NOTE*CBRNE is not a Hazard.CBRNE is an acronym that describes five categories of multiple threats which pose a variety of hazards. (A “threat” is not the same thing as a “hazard”.) A volcano is a hazard. If the volcano erupts, the lava is a threat to people downhill, and the ash cloud is a threat to airplanes (i.e. the potential hazard has materialized into something tangible – a threat)
A risk is the combination of occurrence of harm ( likelihood, or probability of occurrence) and severity of that harm (potential consequences)
