> An important observation for terms likeâ incident, situation, threat, etcâis that these terms on their own without a modifier can convey the idea of an event (i.e. a simple message stating, âthere is a threatâ refers to a âthreatâ as the subject event). Such events are abstract, as opposed to real, but abstract events do not contravene the idea of a subject event.
> When it comes to typing abstract events in CAP, the word âthreatâ is still a noun. As a noun adjunct to the base word event, it too may also be typed. Using the example above, the net result could be a multi-word event of type âfire threatâ, or the even more narrowly defined âforest fire threatâ.
> The term âthreat eventâ, does not provide anything helpful on its own for comparison purposes other than timing. Furthermore, if a qualitative modifier is used, such as âstrong threatâ, it still does not provide anything helpful for comparison purposes. Abstract events, like timing spectrum events, are best served with another adjunct as a modifier instead of qualifying modifiers. With âfire threatâ, there is both tangible information on the hazardous or concerning event plus information on the timing.
> One advantage of adding timing spectrum words to the term is that they aid in pre-planning shorter audience messages when length of message is a concern. Another advantage is that the noun adjunct for words like threat, situation, incident, etcâ does not necessarily have to convey a sense of an event because threat, situation, incident, etcâ already do.
