English term or phrase: depth
In the sentence below, I can not understand what this "depth" actually means. ("this incident" means 9/11 here.)

As a result, this incident reinforced the need for training and depth in Agency Representatives and SECC staff.

Japanese translation:充実
Explanation:
If you take this literally (depth in representatives and staff), it would probably mean "depth" in the sense that a sports team is deep - in other words, the human resources are 充実している.
