1 1. INTRODUCTION The Cook County Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (DHSEM) plays a lead role in the homeland security and emergency management mission within the Chicago Urban Area; any successful entities awarded any contract(s) under this RFP will be expected to work closely with the DHSEM in the provision of services that are essential to this mission. An objective of the DHSEM is to ensure the Urban Area has a region-wide capability to prevent, protect against, mitigate the effects of, respond to and recover from all events, whether manmade or natural. In the instant case, this relates to man-made attacks and other events requiring tactical response and technical rescue. One overarching goal is to help insure effective and efficient coordination and implementation of the region s homeland security and emergency preparedness program, thereby meeting federal, state and local requirements. The DHSEM works to increase security and preparedness; enhance coordination, and the capacity to respond to and recover from regional emergencies; and effectively communicate with vital stakeholders to include the public about preparedness and emergency response to all hazards, whether man made or natural. Working closely with regional partners, the DHSEM ensures coordination of homeland security programs and planning efforts, and enhances communication between local, state, and federal governments, businesses, nonprofits, and the residents of the Urban Area, information sharing and situational awareness, critical infrastructure protection and the development and maintenance of regional core capabilities. 2. BACKGROUND The DHSEM has worked diligently under the leadership of President Toni Preckwinkle to ensure that our Urban Area is able to prepare for, protect and mitigate against, respond to and recover from all hazards, whether man-made or natural. In this, the DHSEM has created operations, intelligence, planning, logistics, and training efforts through federally approved grant funding. It is of vital importance to both the County and its residents that the County develop programs and efforts which not only reflect federal priorities but that can enhance the safety and security of the Urban Area. DHSEM has identified the need to train first responders in responding to situations where lone or multiple gunmen are undertaking, or threatening to undertake, violence against individuals, organizations or ideologies. Collectively, and for the purposes of this document, this shall be known as Active Threat Scenarios (ATS) and Multiple-Assault Counter-Terrorism Action Capabilities (MACTAC). The DHSEM began focusing on preparing first responders in these areas during its first training programs, developed shortly after the leadership transition in the Department in May The DHSEM seeks to develop a comprehensive, multi-media and multi-disciplinary curriculum for ATS and MACTAC incidents and preparedness measures to deter and/or detect the same. At this time, no such curriculum exists; as a result, and because of the large number of information sources available on this subject, agencies, academic institutions and workplaces often select training or information that is presented to them, not necessarily best practice information. 1

2 The DHSEM has worked to develop best practice training for tactical operators to reduce multiple training techniques, disjointed information, etc. There remains a disconnect between law enforcement and other sectors to include, the private, non-profit, academic and faith-based communities regarding training and preparedness; a comprehensive training/preparedness program would be beneficial to all. 3. CURRENT TRAINING EFFORTS Working with first responder agencies and training partners, in 2012, the DHSEM trained 120 officers as instructors for ATS and MACTAC. In 2013, the DHSEM trained an additional 500 officers, most as instructors, for ATS Response and MACTAC. Additionally, the DHSEM has conducted several Speakers Series events, such as one in October 2012, focusing on Response and Lessons Learned from the Oslo and Utøya Island, Norway Attacks and Massacre, and another, held on 14 February 2013, to coincide with the 5 th anniversary of the Northern Illinois University shooting in 2008, which focused on Law Enforcement Response to School Violence. The DHSEM will continue to plan lectures designed to reach both first responders, and others, such as school administrators. 4. PURPOSE The DHSEM offers a comprehensive and effective training program to train state and local officials in preparing for, protecting against, mitigating the effects of, responding to and recovering from all-hazards, in a multi-disciplinary effort. Entities across the Urban Area can and do cope with disaster by preparing in advance through training activities and by using the skills learned to build local teams and coalitions that respond to emergencies. In addition, training and exercises are utilized as an instrument to train for and practice prevention, vulnerability reduction, response, and recovery capabilities in a risk-free environment. They can also be used to assess and improve performance. Exercises are an excellent way to demonstrate community resolve to prepare for disastrous events. Comprehensive training in the area of ATS will yield day-to-day benefits for our nation s communities, as both first responders and residents are able to take a more active role in identifying and reporting suspicious behavior. Given the work that Cook County DHSEM is undertaking in our Urban Area and the impact that we have across 134 jurisdictions in Cook County, the DHSEM is seeking Requests for Proposals (RFP) from firms experienced in homeland security, law enforcement, the fire service, general first responder and emergency management services as well as community outreach and work with the private, academic, non-profit and other non-governmental sectors to develop a comprehensive training, exercise and outreach plan following FEMA s whole-community, allhazards approach, which could be a model for other jurisdictions, that would entail at base the following: 2

3 1. Review of existing ATS curriculum for both first responders and others that leaders in the field are utilizing to better coordinate with DHS priorities and for potential use by other entities; review to include other stakeholders, from public, private, non-profit and faithbased organizations (FBO s). 2. Review of commonly used, as well as DHS-provided, ATS material. 3. Development of a scalable curriculum for different levels of knowledge and expertise for both first responders (to include law enforcement, the fire service, and Emergency Medical Services), partner organizations (academic institutions, FBO s and others) as well as residents that can be presented either independently or collaboratively to all groups. 4. Rollout of ATS Training 5. Development of Tabletop, Functional and Full-Scale Exercises on ATS incidents. 6. Development of a Speaker s Series, which will bring key subject matter experts in to discuss issues with key groups, representing all sectors (first responders, FBO s, residents, etc.). 7. Development of a comprehensive, multi-media, multi-disciplinary outreach campaign to educate all sectors on preparing for, protecting against, mitigating the effects of, responding to and recovering from ATS events. 5. SCOPE OF SERVICES The Contractor shall provide the following tasks associated with the design, development, conduct, and evaluation of a comprehensive ATS training and exercise program, during the term of the contract. The contractor shall provide the necessary labor, equipment, and materials to perform the work and deliver products as described in this section. The contractor will also coordinate and secure facilities and necessary equipment and resources sufficient to the total projected attendance for all activities under this RFP. I. ATS Curriculum Development 1. Review of current practices and procedures related to ATS training and exercise development, to include other entities model policies and training procedures, and make appropriate recommendations for the DHSEM s training and exercise plan and strategy in this area and effectuation of the same. This review of existing ATS efforts should include training and exercise models, modules and curriculum both first responders and others that leaders in the field are utilizing to better coordinate with DHS priorities and for potential use by other entities; review to include other stakeholders from law enforcement, the fire service, Emergency Medical Services as well as from other public sector entities, and from private, non-profit, academic and faith-based organizations (FBO s). 2. Review of commonly used as well as DHS-provided ATS material. 3. Perform assessment of Cook County ATS training needs, utilizing survey and interview measures to determine resources currently provided and discrepancies between and within the public and private sectors. 3

4 4. Development of a scalable curriculum for different levels of knowledge and expertise for first responders (to include law enforcement, the fire service, and Emergency Medical Services), partner organizations (academic institutions, FBO s and others) as well as residents that can be presented either independently or collaboratively to all groups. Curriculums may be presented either independently or collaboratively to all groups, and can be presented in beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels, with varying time blocks of instruction to adapt to needs of individual organizations. A. Curriculum for first responders will focus on tactical and technical areas, with development of best-practice training and equipment deployment strategies. This will include recommendations, based on research, best-practices and other input on specific equipment items to be deployed by first responders from various disciplines. Increasing concerns exist about the possibility of Homegrown Violent Extremists undertaking or being involved in Active Threat Scenarios or Mass Casualty Events. As such, any ATS strategies, training efforts and curriculum should consider, complement or reinforce existing Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) and Homegrown Violent Extremism (HVE) strategies or training, or be designed to be able to be integrated into developing CVE or HVE strategies. In this, the contractor will work with the Department to ensure cohesiveness with other programs or initiatives to ensure a comprehensive approach across disciplines and issue areas. B. Curriculum for Partner Organizations (Academic Institutions, Faith Based Organizations and Private Sector) will focus on the development of targeted training for Faith-Based, Academic Institutions and Private Sector partners. C. Curriculum for the general public will address preparation for, mitigation of, response to, and recovery from ATS incidents. 5. Develop online, social and multi-media applications and/or content to emphasize learning objectives as well as convey curriculum through instructional and educational videos, etc. This may include integrating DHSEM systems with existing tools or applications to assist various sectors during real-world events. 6. Develop ATS Checklists specific to particular organizations or institutions, based on national best practice and as a component of the training and education component, to function as a safety planning document for the institution. 7.
