ABSTRACT
The article focuses on U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Tom Ridge who unveiled the completed National Response Plan (NRP) at a January 6, 2005 press conference at the National Governor's Association in Washington D.C. The NRP is the centerpiece of DHS efforts to improve the management of large-scale domestic emergencies, or "incidents of national significance," to use the term coined within the NRP. Underpinned by the National Incident Management System released in March 2004, the plan is a product of collaborative efforts of experts from federal departments and agencies, state, local, and tribal officials, incident response and private sector committees from around the nation.
