=LABEL THE QUESTION BEFORE ANSWERINGReview a Threat Assessment exercise of a classmate and provide constructive feedback. Can you follow their logic for the assessments they provided? Would you assess the likelihoods of the hazards the same?2.Are casualties the most important type of consequence to consider in a homeland security risk assessment? When might economic or psychological consequences take priority?3.What do you consider to be a catastrophic level of consequence? How many casualties, or degree of mission impact, or amount of psychological stress, or dollars in damage? Why? Would that level change if you were the President? Would it change if you were a Mayor?
