During the lion's share of my career, it was assumed that any incident involving explosives or weapons of mass destruction was a law enforcement incident until proved otherwise. Overall responsibility during the crisis phase would be assigned to law enforcement. Fire, EMS and technical-rescue resources obviously would be involved in some support role during the consequence management phase.
