Overview

"Terrorism is no longer something that only happens to other countries. Attacks on U.S. soil in the 1990s brought the reality of terrorism home, and the September 11th tragedy let us know that the United States is a high priority target. The goal of terrorists today is body count, and while traditional bombings have served them in the past, the allure of killing thousands of people with a very small amount of biological or chemical agent might prove irresistible. Our only defense on the frontline is a well prepared emergency response team." The key to an effective response to a terrorist attack is to understand and contain the hazardous materials involved. Counter-Terrorism for Emergency Responders, Second Edition details the characteristics, actions, identification, and containment of all types of agents and protocols for emergency treatment. Updated from the 1999 edition, chapter after chapter is packed with new information on chemical agents, biological agents, as well as explosive, nuclear, and incendiary devices.

Beginning with its cover photo of the World Trade Center bombing scene, this text focuses on such terrorist incidents, scene management, and recommended protective equipment and decontamination procedures for multi-agency responses to incidents involving explosive, chemical, biological, radiological, or incendiary agents. Provides information on terms, the US Urban Search & Rescue Response System, Center for Domestic Preparedness Training Programs, regulations on select agents, and proposed amendments to terrorism statutes; and lists cities having received terrorism training, websites, explosive materials, and a chronology of Unabomber targets.
