The Emergency Responder's Guide to Terrorism is a dynamic, engaging, and highly detailed presentation on the many dangers associated with a terrorist attack. Drawing extensively from both military and civilian sources, this Awareness-Level program provides emergency response personnel with an extremely visual look at the means, motives, and strategies that underlie today's terrorist threat.

A first responder's field guide and classroom awareness-level training manual on the unique dangers associated with biochemical warfare agents, radiological dispersants, as well as more conventional incendiary, explosive and ballistic threats common in terrorism scenarios. The book takes extensive advantage of photo-realistic 3D imaging technologies to present information in a clear, vivid and very engaging manner.

The target audience is all emergency responders; Firefighters, Paramedic/EMT and Law Enforcement, security personnel and industrial plant managers/facility managers responsible for in-house training and preparedness.
