Introduction:

There are a range of worrisome threats to US health and national security—worrisome because they have the potential to cause widespread disruption and damage to the public's health and to the US and global economies. These threats include major natural hazards like large earthquakes and hurricanes and infectious disease pandemics; accidental threats, including technological failures, such as nuclear power plant disasters like Three Mile Island and Fukushima; and intentional attacks by thinking adversaries, including terrorist use of biological, chemical, or nuclear/radiological weapons.
