From Dione Mazzolini, FBI Assistant WMD Coordinator, " Our state has some definite vulnerabilities when it comes to an agro-terrorism event, and speaking from experience, the better we understand each other's mission, roles and responsibilities, the better chance of success we have working together to contain the threat and identify the perpetrator. "

  • Identify assets and capabilities for each discipline.
