also called out, for if they had been, they should have remove the suspicious package immediately to a safe location away from the terminal. It is there at a safe location that the K-9 unit could have been brought in to identify the package. Almost from the beginning, we can see that there is no clear area of command, and a proper command structure was not set in place, for although the TSA supervisor was notified, who also notified law-enforcement officials, there did not seem to be any synthesis of the various responding units in securing the area and ensuring that people were safe but also detained, and that the possible bomb was not moved to a safe location. Fortney (2015) describes the importance of drills to ensure all first responders are aware of the most optimal procedures to undertake during a specific scenario, and this incident did not seem like the involved parties had drilled for this at all.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
