13 Taxonomy of Incidents C H A P T E R 3 The research team identified the nine highest-priority incident types and developed a spread- sheet tool to generate complete basic TIRPs for those nine types of incidents. The basic patterns identified in process mapping strongly indicated that the most appropriate high-priority incident type could be used to develop a tool to generate TIRPs for the other 49 incident types ascertained in the risk analysis and documented in the literature review. This assumption was revisited at each step of the development of the tool including process mapping to ensure applicability. Table 6 displays the correlation of lower-priority incident types with the nine design incident types. Design Incident Type Related Incidents Active shooter Active shooter Bomb Hostage/barricade Bomb threat Biological agent Bomb threat Chemical agent Nonspecific threat of damage to people or terminal Pandemic/quarantine Radioactive agent Suspicious odor Suspicious package or bag Earthquake Earthquake Structural failure of building Electrical outage/power failure Baggage system failure Electrical outage/power failure FAA navigation system failures Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) failure Security equipment malfunction Transit system failure (trams, people movers, access and functional needs transport, etc.) Hurricane High water/flood Hurricane Storm Tidal wave/tsunami Wind-driven water Table 6.
