Preparing for Terrorism: An Emergency Services Guide / Edition 1

This timely text enables the student to develop the skills for dealing with terrorism on many levels: preparing and planning for terrorist attack, mitigating its effects, proper emergency response and recovery from terrorism disasters. The student learns how to analyze existing emergency service planning and operational system models and formulate a more effective plan for local, regional, state and federal response in the event of terrorist incidents. In light of efforts by government agencies such as FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency), FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation), DOD, (Department of Defense), DOE (Department of Energy) and local agencies across the nation, this text is an essential guide to the planning and implementation of antiterrorist response and operations for the overall safety of the first responder.
