  1. Improve notification and response mechanisms:

    The OHS has revised the “Guidelines for Contingency Response Plans and Operations of Homeland Security” and the “Operation Directions on Homeland Security Contingency Notification” in order to enhance response capabilities. All relevant ministries and agencies are required to draft response plans, organize staff members, and assemble response teams; so that during normal times they can perform risk assessments, hold drills, and work closely with national security units. Different levels of response centers are established based on the severity of the occurring security incident. For a single terrorist attack, the appropriate ministry would establish a Level Two response center. If the incident is a dual or large-scale attack, the Executive Yuan would establish a Level One response center with the vice premier as its commander.

  2. Optimize special forces’ capacities to perform counter-terrorism missions:

    In accordance with the “Lian-an (Joint) Project Guidelines,” the OHS established resource-sharing and learning mechanisms while conducted joint drills and coordinated warfare training. The goals are to familiarize the units with command and management, as well as operating communications systems between all counter-terrorism special forces.

  3. Hold training sessions and drills that test contingency response measures and make necessary improvements:
    1. Jin-hua Drill: Based on a complex cross-departmental disaster scenario, the Jin-hua Drill includes academic seminars, lectures, tabletop exercises, war games, and full-scale exercises.
    2. Lian-an (Joint) Project Training and Exercise: This annual exercise is carried out jointly by the Department of National Defense, National Police Agency of the Ministry of the Interior, and Special Forces from the Ocean Affairs Council. Live-fire exercises are performed according to the specific scenario provided in order to enhance counter-terrorism warfare capabilities.
    3. Critical Infrastructure drills: Since 2015, the OHS has conducted 15 CIP drills based on all-hazard scenarios to test security protection mechanisms and emergency response protocols with the focus of increasing disaster resilience.
    4. Since the completion of the Counter-Terrorism Training Center in 2017, it has provided training facilities for law enforcement and special forces to conduct ex-situ training, integrate training resources, and cooperate with the international community to exchange training experiences in combat technology and strategy.
