Missouri natural disaster preparations have a positive impact on Tim Daniel's job as Homeland Security Advisor for the state.
Daniel says his job of evaluating Missouri's communication and coordination in working against terrorist threats is easier because of existing preparation for natural disasters by Missouri agencies.
Daniel says he has two main concerns he wants to address: bio-terrorism procedures and managing the consequences if there was another attack on America.
And with the existing coordination of state agencies, Daniel's job is a little easier in this time of urgency.
State agencies including the National Guard, SEMA, and Highway Patrols across the state are all part of the coordination efforts already in place.
