Sample text

Chapter 6 describes the committee’s derivation of nearly 500 potential preparedness indicators (the indicators themselves are provided in Appendix E). Chapter 7 addresses OEP’s management of the program by providing OEP with a self-report instrument with which to query MMRS program communities about their perceptions of the MMRS program and OEP’s administration of the program. Chapter 8 addresses the effectiveness of the program itself. It draws on a subset of the preparedness indicators to describe the committee’s recommendations for a three-part program for assessing the capabilities of the MMRS program communities.

When the committee began this project the future success of the MMRS program depended on voluntary cooperative efforts to prepare for possible but seemingly improbable events. As the project concludes, the committee believes that OEP must be empowered to take a stance that fosters voluntary collaboration but must be willing and able to enforce integration of local, state, and federal services as a pressing societal need for coping with inevitable future acts of terrorism. The importance of the MMRS program effort is no longer equivocal, questionable, or debatable.

A Phase I report delivered to the sponsor in October 2001 (Institute of Medicine, 2001) provided some initial observations on the program and its management, answered the specific questions posed by OEP for consideration during Phase I of the project. Because the primary measure of effectiveness for any program is the extent to which it achieves its ultimate goals, the Committee also identified almost 500 preparedness indicators that might be used to assess the response capabilities of MMRS program cities at the site, jurisdictional, and governmental levels.
