Terrorism and tactical violence incidents present a myriad of challenges for the Emergency Responder. First, responders will confront a violent, dangerous, and unstable scene that can kill them. Secondly, they may face new chemical, biological, and radiological threats with little (or no) protective equipment or training for this continually changing threat. Lastly, a successful attack will result in mass casualties and multiple fatalities. This complex combination of threats and high impact aftermath make these scenes unlike anything most of us have ever responded to before. These unknown or unfamiliar environments we may enter, only serve to amplify the dangers we will be required to work around in order to safely discharge our duties and save lives.
The purpose of this pocket guide is to provide a quick reference of Fire and EMS regarding consequence management responsibilities during a terrorist attack. Most importantly, it is a safety guide to help members survive.
