Although Transportation and Telecommunication are involved, for purposes of this assignment, you will focus on Hospitals. One of the main components of an emergency response plan is medical care. Depending on the type of terrorist response, medical facility caregivers must be ready to attend to the sick and injured.
Injuries could be from shrapnel, blasts, brain trauma, contamination from a biological agent, or radiation poisoning, for example. Those injured will be civilians, children, and first responders. Medical triaging, accessing supplies, and fielding medical personnel will certainly take priority. The Incident Commander must establish a liaison with the medical gatekeeper.

Depending on the multicultural configuration of the affected site, emergency hospital personnel may require interpreters or the aid of family members.
