follow a similar format as the DoD organizations above. It will briefly highlight the

organizations missions, capabilities, and then discuss how they interoperate with one

FBI

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is the Lead Federal Agency (LFA) for

WMD crisis management.34 In this capacity it will act as the on-scene commander for

WMD incidents. Because crisis management and consequence management often

overlap considerably, the FBI is requires a high degree of coordination with DoD and

other responding agencies. This is especially so during the early stages of a WMD event.

The FBI charges the Special Agent in Charge of its local field division as its WMD

incident commander. It also employs elements of its Critical Incident Response Group

(CIRG) out of Quantico, Virginia to provide operational assistance. Besides its post

event assistance mission, the CIRG also provides WMD related crisis management

training to various FBI organizations as well as to DoD, other federal agencies, and state

and local organizations.35 The CIRG’s Crisis Management Unit (CMU) deploys within

four hours of notification and lists as its goals:

  • 1.

    Resolve incident without further injury, loss of life or damage.

  • 2.

    Ensure safety of all participants.

  • 3.

    Apprehend the subjects.

  • 4.

    Accomplish within the framework of applicable legal and ethical standards.

The CMU is a critical element at the event scene because they are the federal

officials who define the command post structure, how the crisis management system

operates, and how taskings are issued.
