The U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced plans Wednesday to conduct the largest and most comprehensive counter-terrorism exercise to date.

The Exercise named TOPOFF 4 in Arizona, Oregon and the U.S. territory of Guam from Oct. 15-19 is the 4th in a series of congressionally mandated exercises, the department said in a statement.

The exercise will involve 15,000 participants from all levels of government as well as the governments of Australia, Canada and Britain.

TOPOFF 4 will also include the private sector in a full-scale, simulated response to radiological dispersal device attacks.

U.S. officials said the exercise will focus on five areas in an effort to test interagency coordination, planning and preparedness including prevention, intelligence and investigation, incident management, public information and evaluation.
