We should all recognize the threat of terrorist and criminal attacks is still and should be a primary focus of our planning and training efforts. This blog will attempt to provide a forum to discuss and review many aspects of emergency response to terrorist and criminal threats and attacks. Designed to provide emergency management personnel and agencies with comprehensive and current information pertaining to the prevention, preparedness, recognition, response, and recovery from terrorist and criminal attacks.

These incidents can include bombings, mass shootings, weapons of mass destruction (WMD), civil unrest, etc. Emergency Management personnel need to be prepared to face these critical incidents and understand the hazards and complications they may encounter when responding to them.

Thank you for visiting.

Regards,

August Vernon
