dc.description.abstractFrom the events of September 11, 2011, the United States learned a large-scale disaster can strike without warning. President Bush issued a series of Homeland Security Presidential Directives (HSPD) intended to increase coordination among response agencies. However, despite the enactment of the HSPDs, coordination and collaboration among response agencies is significantly lacking with respect to radiological emergency planning and preparedness activities. Planning for nuclear/radiological events is unique in that they often occur with no notice, with great complexity, and require broad scenario planning to cover the important potential contingencies. Radiological events demand that actions be taken by responsible organizations, in a timely and effective manner to mitigate consequences on populations, infrastructure and environment. This thesis is intended to help officials better understand the many factors that impact coordination and collaboration. These factors range from information sharing to multidisciplinary participation. This thesis will also assist officials in better understanding the Capabilities Based Planning Model and how it may be implemented to enhance radiological emergency planning and preparedness. The elements included in this paper are intended to enhance the planning and associated decisions made by all partners involved in local radiological planning efforts. In conclusion, the thesis recommends enhancing radiological emergency planning and preparedness at the local level, through integrating the jurisdictions approach with the use of the Capabilities Based Planning Model to encourage performance partnership and collaborative methods.en_US
