Discussing any government program or agency requires a list of
acronyms and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is no exception
to this rule. In a well-written paper, briefly describe the
history and formation of the DHS. Be sure to discuss, at a minimum, the
agencies and concepts designated by following acronyms: QHSR, HSE,
NRF, NIMS, ICS, and UC. Explain what each means. This should be done in
a logical sequence where one acronym builds upon or relates to
another. There is a top down logical flow to these acronyms. Within
each description, be sure to highlight and discuss core elements or
requirements that each acronym calls for or offers. Your paper should be 2-3 pages in length.
Cite at least two credible outside sources for support. Please note that more
sources will enhance the quality of your response and provide a better
understanding from which to make you arguments or points.
