the primary responsibility for consequence management after a terrorist attack
goes to state and local governments, with assistance from the feds.

attacks and further divides the efforts into crisis management
and consequence management. Like in the events of September 11th,
Crisis management in short terms, means going after the criminals In order to
prevent terrorist acts from being carried out. Crisis management is headed by The
Department of Justice  and the Federal
Bureau of Investigation. Consequence management involves the humanitarian side
of the response, including measures to protect public health and safety,
restore essential government services, and provide emergency relief to
governments, businesses, and individuals, during and after the attacks.. The
lead agency for consequence management is the Federal Emergency Management Agency
