6 INTRODUCTION DALLAS/FORT WORTH/ARLINGTON UASI Introduction The Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) program represents the next evolution of state and federal terrorism preparedness programs in support of local and regional efforts. The Dallas/Fort Worth/Arlington (DFWA) Urban Area (UA) embraces the emphasis on terrorism prevention activities and welcomes resources and support to the UA to reduce vulnerabilities, enhance prevention, and increase recovery capability. The UA recognizes and appreciates these activities and resources, while retaining a strong focus on terrorism, will continue to enhance an allhazards approach to emergency management in the North Central Texas region. The Governor s Office of Homeland Security, the Governor s Division of Emergency Management (GDEM), and all 24 regional Councils of Governments have moved toward regionalism in building emergency preparedness capacity throughout Texas. The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) continues to collaborate with all member governments to enhance regional emergency planning activities. A significant number of current and ongoing efforts in the UA can now be leveraged to complement UASI program parameters. Members of the UA have made tremendous progress since September 11, In addition, the UASI program will enable the UA to continue to coordinate and combine many otherwise independent efforts to build a sustainable and measurable increase in the capability of our UA to prevent, prepare, protect, respond to, and recover from threats or acts of terrorism. Purpose This North Central Texas DFWA Urban Area Security Strategy (Strategy) will serve as the fourth edition of the UASI strategy for the UA. The primary purpose of this strategy is to identify a deliberate path for enhancing regional capacity and capability to respond to acts of terrorism or major disasters by working in collaboration with state and federal partners. Additionally, this revision will more closely align the Strategy to the revised National Preparedness Guidelines, National Priorities, and the Texas Homeland Security Strategic Plan Through this revision process, the UA reassessed its capability gaps and use of the previous two years of funding to effectively prioritize identified needs. The size and diversity of the UA requires a preparedness program which leverages all available resources and accounts for the full spectrum of potential terrorist threats, attacks, and natural or technological disasters. This is an exceedingly complex mission that requires coordination, cooperation, and a focused effort from the entire region. Implementation of this Strategy will assist local agencies personnel and other stakeholders to mitigate large-scale events while responding quickly and effectively to limit the loss of life and property. This Strategy will serve as a guide for the UA to acquire, implement, and manage resources from local, regional, and private agencies. It will remain a dynamic document and continue to expand in scope and detail as we move forward with our regional partners. DFWA UASI STRATEGY 5

7 INTRODUCTION Vision The DFWA UA is prepared with coordinated capabilities and assets to prevent, prepare, protect against, respond to, and recover from acts of terrorism and/or other disasters whether natural or manmade. Focus In order to accomplish the strategic vision for the DFWA UA, the Strategy is organized around critical mission areas to enhance the region's preparedness capacity including: Common Mission Areas Enhance Regional and Local Emergency Management Programs: The UA will continue to take an all-hazards approach that improves the ability to respond to both terrorism incidents and other major disasters. For decades, the Texas disaster declaration process has recognized that local officials are the resident experts and are therefore better equipped to make decisions about local response and needs. The Strategy is built around that premise and emphasizes the importance of grassroots input and planning. The resulting focus should be to allow the UA to develop emergency preparedness and response capability to respond to and manage the incident without relying on additional state or federal aid. To further enhance the existing capabilities in the planning area, the DFWA UASI coordinates with the Houston, San Antonio, and El Paso UASIs to implement a statewide UASI Peer-to-Peer Network. Achieve Interoperable Communications: Effective communication and coordination among all responding agencies and the involvement of the private sector will be necessary to reduce the region s vulnerability to a terrorist attack and recover quickly from any attack or disaster that occurs. Interoperable systems are being implemented and exercised throughout the North Central Texas (NCT) region and advancement of those systems to standards based systems and protocols are currently underway. Enhance Citizen Participation and Preparedness: The best way to protect citizens and mitigate loss of life and property is through education and participation from local citizens. The DFWA UA has worked to build robust citizen involvement through two primary programs: The KnoWhat2Do public education campaign and the Citizen Corps Program (CCP). The KnoWhat2Do public education campaign has fostered interest on all levels. This program has received awards and recognition from the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and the Emergency Management Association of Texas (EMAT). KnoWhat2Do has been implemented beyond the DFWA UA to reach the entire region of over six million people. The NCTCOG CCP is incorporated regionally with 16 Citizen Corps Councils including active participation from more than 155 CCP teams. 6 DFWA UASI STRATEGY

8 INTRODUCTION Prevent/Protect Focus Area Enhance Intelligence and Information Sharing, Gathering, and Analysis: The first priority of the UA is to detect terrorists, deter their activities, deny access to support structures, and prevent an attack before it occurs. Prevention activities will enhance coordination and communication among UA citizens, local, state and federal agencies, as well as the private and nonprofit sectors. By focusing on intelligence and warning systems the UA will be better equipped to detect terrorist activity before it manifests itself in an attack so that proper preemptive, preventive, and protective actions can be taken. Prevention systems can be enhanced for more effective regional use through Geo- Spatial/Geo-Coding technology, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) technology, fiber-optic networks, and other resources currently available in the region. By further concentrating existing efforts in point of entry (i.e. DFW Airport) and transportation security, the UA will continue to leverage support to promote the efficient and reliable flow of people, goods, and services while preventing terrorists from using transportation corridors, conveyances, or systems to deliver implements of destruction. Protecting Critical Infrastructure: The UA will continue to identify and assess risks and take action to protect critical infrastructure and key resources (CI/KR). The UA will continue to assemble, analyze, and enhance assessment threat information. A combination of this data will be utilized to accurately identify gaps and shortfalls, which will assist in the reduction of vulnerability. To further enhance the ability to reach this goal, the UA is in the process of implementing a Multi-UASI Infrastructure Protection/Risk Management Network. Response/Recovery Focus Area Emergency Response and Regional Recovery Capabilities: The UA Working Group will continue to increase coordination, communication, training, equipment capacity, and mutual aid partnerships among local governments, public health, first responders, and emergency management communities to ensure a quick and orderly response to any regional crisis. Response and recovery operational activities follow the Incident Command and Unified Incident Command Structure in compliance with the National Incident Management System (NIMS) protocols. The local jurisdictions, in coordination with the DFWA UA Working Group, have made tremendous progress in building early warning and notification systems. In 2002, these systems covered approximately two million citizens and have grown to cover nearly five million citizens in This focus will continue to expand coverage to all jurisdictions within the UA. Furthermore, the DFWA UA has worked to build regional capacity to detect and respond to all CBRNE events with particular focus for regional response teams for Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT), Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD), Hazardous Materials (HazMat), and Urban Search and Rescue (US&R). DFWA UASI STRATEGY 7

9 INTRODUCTION In an effort to prevent loss of life and respond to public health emergencies, the DFWA UA is also working closely with members of the public health community through the Medical and Mass Prophylaxis Subcommittee. Each goal, objective, and task is directly related to at least one National Priority, Target Capability, and an objective from the Texas Homeland Security Strategic Plan Pictures therein are meant to serve as examples for pertinent subject matter. In addition to being posted on the DFWA UA website at: copies of the Strategy will be distributed to elected officials from city and county jurisdictions within the UA and all members of emergency management/preparedness working groups and committees within the NCT region. Coordination The organizational system for the DFWA UA program includes local officials, responders from various disciplines, and multiple jurisdictions. Through a statement of work (SOW), the DFWA Executive Committee contracts with the NCTCOG to assist with coordination, administration, and management of the program. To explain the development of the Strategy, it is important to first explain the overall structure of the DFWA UA program. There are four levels of coordination which are based on the structure developed in earlier years (see chart below): 8 DFWA UASI STRATEGY

10 INTRODUCTION 1. Executive Committee: The Executive Committee is comprised of representatives from each of the three core cities (i.e. Dallas, Fort Worth, and Arlington) identified in the FY 2007 Homeland Security Grant Program Guidance and recognized by the State Administrative Agency (SAA). The Executive Committee serves as the leadership and decision-making authority for the DFWA UA Working Group. Thus, the Executive Committee provides final approval for all decisions including the Strategy. 2. DFWA UA Working Group: The DFWA UA Working Group is comprised of the Executive Committee and the metropolitan county partners of: Collin, Dallas, Denton, and Tarrant. This group is multi-disciplinary and helps to set direction for the Regional Subcommittees. 3. Regional Subcommittees: The Regional Subcommittees are multi-jurisdictional groups comprised of subject matter experts, which follow the focus areas of the National Priorities. These subcommittees review discipline specific information and projects. Subcommittees provide recommendations to the Working Group and Executive Committee based on their technical knowledge and expertise. In an effort to include concerns from all local government partners, membership is open to all jurisdictions within the NCT region. 4. Working Group Partners: The DFWA UA Working Group Partners include the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport and the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART). These stakeholders are incorporated in the DFWA UA Working Group process in efforts to take an inclusive regional approach to the development and implementation of the UASI program. In accordance with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) FY 2007 Homeland Security Grant Program guidance, Citizen Corps and Metropolitan Medical Response System (MMRS) efforts are built into the DFWA UA structure. CCP is one of the Regional Subcommittees and is comprised of CCP stakeholders from the NCT Region. Similarly, MMRS cities are represented at various levels within the structure. There are five jurisdictions which are sponsored entities for MMRS: Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington, Irving, and Garland. The MMRS programs Dallas, Fort Worth, and Arlington have effective representation through both the Executive Committee of the Working Group as well as membership on every Regional Subcommittee. Irving and Garland have membership on most regional subcommittees with an option to participate in all subcommittees. Finally, the Medical and Mass Prophylaxis Subcommittee exists specifically to consider regional public health concerns including MMRS. This Strategy has been developed by the DFWA Working Group, Regional Subcommittees, Working Group Partners, and the NCTCOG with leadership from the DFWA Executive Committee. DFWA UASI STRATEGY 9

11 INTRODUCTION Effort The DFWA UA Executive Committee took an all inclusive approach in the development of this revision. In partnership with the NCTCOG and the Regional Emergency Preparedness Advisory Committed (REPAC), the DFWA UA has developed a unified set of goals, objectives, and tasks which serve as both the body of this Strategy and the Regional Implementation Plan. The Regional Subcommittees actively participated in the revision of this strategy by developing and updating regional goals, objectives, and tasks. The Strategy revision was posted for review and final comment from the DFWA UA Working Group, Regional Subcommittees, Working Group Partners, REPAC, and all local jurisdictions before the final version was approved by the Executive Committee for submission to the SAA and DHS. UA Jurisdictions In 2003, the City of Dallas was designated a high-threat urban area receiving an initial UASI grant. In 2005, the City of Fort Worth and the City of Arlington were added as additional highthreat urban areas. Finally, in 2006 the three urban areas were combined as the DFWA UA. At present, the UA includes the core cities of Dallas, Fort Worth, and Arlington and the four metro counties of Collin, Dallas, Denton, and Tarrant. The UA boundary includes a population totaling approximately 5,270,000. There are over 150 jurisdictions of all population sizes, eleven totaling approximately 100,000, within this boundary. In addition to the large population of the DFWA UA, the DFW International Airport covers more than 29.8 square miles. DFW Airport is the second largest in the United States in terms of land mass and third busiest in the world. Recently, the DFW metro area surpassed the Philadelphia metro region as the fourth largest metro area in the nation. Thus, enhancing the importance of improving regional capabilities to prevent, prepare for, protect, respond to, and recover from terrorist threats and acts, which is essential to citizen safety and welfare. Regionalization and Mutual Aid The DFWA UA is located within the NCT region. NCTCOG is one of 24 Councils of Governments within the State of Texas. NCTCOG is an organization of, by, and for local governments. Its purpose is to strengthen both the individual and collective power of local governments and to help them recognize regional opportunities, resolve regional problems, eliminate unnecessary duplication of efforts, make joint regional decisions, and develop the means to implement those decisions. The NCTCOG is responsible for coordinating a 16-county metropolitan region centered around Dallas, Fort Worth, and Arlington. The region has a population of 6.4 million (larger than 30 states in the nation), and an area of approximately 12,800 square miles (larger than nine states). NCTCOG has 236 member governments. 10 DFWA UASI STRATEGY

12 INTRODUCTION UASI planning addresses geographic areas immediately adjacent to the core cities of Dallas, Fort Worth, and Arlington. All of the members of the DFWA UA working group are also members of the NCTCOG which helps to effectively coordinate activities between the DFWA UA and the region as a whole. NCTCOG utilizes REPAC to coordinate homeland security planning and funding for the region as a whole. The members of the UASI Working Group hold positions on REPAC. Thus, there exists a constant flow of information between the DFWA UA Working Group and REPAC. Every jurisdiction within the DFWA UA maintains mutual aid agreements with appropriate surrounding jurisdictions. The DFWA UA Working Group and REPAC monitor the existence of such agreements, which are considered when identifying capability gaps. In addition to local agreements that exist, the State of Texas now has a statewide mutual aid agreement in effect through Senate Bill 11 (SB11), In addition to the local government partnerships described, the UA will continue to collaborate with a wide range of existing local, regional, state, and federal partners such as: Emergency Preparedness Planning Council Regional Emergency Preparedness Advisory Committee Dallas Fort Worth Hospital Council Regional Public Information Officer Task Force Citizen Corps Councils North Texas Volunteer Connection Region 40 Communications Committee Texas Radio Coalition State Interagency Radio Work Group Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) Cross County Public Health Bio-Terrorism Planning North Texas Fire Chiefs Association North Texas Police Chiefs Association North Texas Chapter ASIS formerly American Society for Industrial Security Regional Transportation Council/Metropolitan Planning Organization North Central Texas Trauma Regional Advisory Council (NCTTRAC) Association of Contingency Planners North Texas Chapter InfraGard MMRS Working Groups Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Governor s Division of Emergency Management (GDEM) Through constant information exchange among these partners, the DFWA UA is able to ensure a common vision and strategy. We will continue to be challenged to merge and leverage the myriad of funding streams and sometimes very similar deliverables while being the best stewards possible with homeland security and related funding.
